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.
