Youth & Family Services
Family dynamics inform personal growth and development for our entire lives. From early childhood development to learning how to parent from our own parents; from nature alongside nurture; from learning from example to role modeling behavior, our homes and the actions of the people in it will affect who we are and who we become in distinct and complicated ways.
Youth and family services at Foothill Family include prevention, intervention, treatment, and support programs for various family situations.
Pregnant and parenting teens
are supported through Teen Family Services, Cal-LEARN, and Adolescent Family Life Programs, which provide comprehensive case management and mentoring aimed at goal-setting and achieving, staying in school, and graduating. These programs help young mothers and fathers learn to make positive lifestyle choices, raise healthy babies, and learn parenting skills.
Perpetrators' treatment groups
consist of 52-week group sessions conducted by certified group facilitators to help abusive partners identify their issues with power, self-esteem, and control, and learn how to manage their emotions, particularly anger. Participation can be voluntary or court-mandated.
provides in-home family counseling, referrals, case management and linkage to other necessary services so children can safely remain in their homes or return to their homes after an allegation of abuse has been made.
