Children, Youth and Family

​Family and Children’s Services Division (F&C) serves children, adolescents, young adults, and their families, ages Birth –​ 25 who are experiencing social-emotional and behavioral concerns. Services are provided by five County sites and nineteen contract agency programs. The F&C Division provides outpatient care and programs specific to the unique needs of children and their families. Services are provided that respect cultural values and the natural support systems of youth and families and address children and family behavioral health problems in the least restrictive, most family-like context possible.
