Our belief that healthy families are the basis of every child’s promise for a bright future has been the driving force behind Foothill Family since our founding in 1926.
Due to a large and
growing need, Foothill Family is deeply investing in the community
of Pomona by establishing a permanent, physical location.
Foothill Family seeks to broaden our reach and impact to meet the changing and growing needs of our clients and community.
The new permanent facility in Pomona allows us to expand our care with the high-quality, personalized, and dignified approach that has long been our hallmark as a leader in mental health care and early childhood development programs.
Foothill Family is passionate about working with community partners to connect our families to resources throught the city to ensure our families' essential needs are met. We invite you to join us in this life-changing work to empower underserved children and families.
Pomona ranks disproportionately high for key risk indicators and
stressors that impact the safety and overall well-being of children and
Foothill Family’s programs emphasize prevention and early intervention which
decreases the onset of significant emotional and behavioral challenges, supports the
development of a youth’s strengths and development, and promotes resilience.
Foothill Family has been invested in and supporting the Pomona community since the
1980s. However, without a physical location, families who were seeking services could not
easily access them and our ability to meet their needs were limited.
Our ongoing commitment led us to open a small office in the heart of the city in 2017 and
establish deeper connections with the community and enhance our ability to respond to
families’ needs. Today, we look to vastly expand our presence, reach and impact.
Through our work over the past 4 years, we have made significant impact on the lives of children, teens and families in Pomona. Bringing together community leaders and service providers were key to creating a stronger, more connected and unified safety net for the most vulnerable residents and families. With these foundational achievements, we will DOUBLE OUR IMPACT WITHIN 3 YEARS!
To achieve this we will:
Our programs in Pomona will focus on early childhood development and youth & family services. Our approach to care is intentional and personalized for each client’s continued success. Rather than focus solely on the challenges and/or treatment of one individual, our programs incorporate parents, children, and family members to establish a network of support. This approach to care reinforces the tools and resources clients learn from their work with Foothill Family to ensure lasting change.

Now in the third year of our five-year strategic plan, we move forward with the last phase of our three-phase expansion that saw centers open in Duarte and Covina. The third and final phase involves bringing a permanent 10,000 square foot center to Pomona that will offer early childhood development services, youth & family services, and vital community resources.
