CASPAR (Cambridge And Somerville Program for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Rehabilitation) is a community-based non-profit organization founded in 1970 in response to growing community need for substance abuse treatment.

FirstStep: The FirstStep Street Outreach program offers life-saving alternatives to unsheltered homeless men and women who are affected by substance abuse, mental illness and medical complications associated with life on the streets.

Emergency Service Center: The Emergency Service CenterĀ (ESC) is one of three shelters in Massachusetts that accept homeless people who are actively using alcohol and drugs. At the ESC clients receive medical and mental health care, nutritional food, personal hygiene supplies, clean clothes, counseling, case management, and employment, housing, and treatment referrals in an environment that is welcoming and safe. The ESC provides a 24-hour shelter, 365 days a year to residents of Cambridge and Somerville.

Residential Programs: Our residential programs are designed to help individuals maintain sobriety, while developing skills they’ll need when they transition to the “real world.”
