Overcoming Barriers to Care

Family & Children (F&C)

The Family and Children Services Program is committed to providing services that are individualized and appropriate to a client’s age, culture, family values, and whole health. We are dedicated to providing tools and resources for clients and their families to achieve and maintain positive outcomes.

Through its 5 programs (Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient Behavioral Health, Ethnic Specific Behavioral Health, Adolescent Drug and Alcohol Prevention and Treatment Services (ADAPT), and Katie A services) F&C services aim to:

  • Provide services that are strength-based, client-centered, family engaged, culturally competent, community defined, focused on whole health and advocacy informed
  • Help clients address social, emotional, and behavioral challenges and conflicts and improve their functioning at home, school, or community
  • Provide services in Santa Clara County’s Threshold Languages: Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Spanish, Tagalog and English, and other languages when available to county residents who have full-scope Medi-Cal.

Family & Children Services

This program aims to address the needs of young people in crisis with higher level of need for stabilization and significant behavioral and emotional difficulties. This requires meeting for 2 hours or more a week. We help develop the skills that they need to improve functioning at home, build their natural support system and improve relationships through an array of intensive services.

This program aims to help children and adolescents address social, emotional and behavioral challenges and conflicts through various interventions and treatments. Services may be conducted at the clinic, home or school.

This program aims to provide services to children and youth of Asian, South and Southeast Asian, and Middle Eastern descent. Services provided are strength-based, client-centered, and focused on each client’s whole health.
