Healing families. Strengthening communities.

Our Agency

Who we are

Uplift Family Services is a statewide nonprofit that helps children and families. The agency is one of the largest, most comprehensive mental health treatment programs in California. Uplift Family Services takes a state-of-the-art approach to children and adolescents with complex behavioral health challenges and helps them recover from trauma such as abuse, severe neglect, addiction and poverty. For youth that exit our programs, over 90% are living in the community, staying in school, and remaining out of trouble.

...to ensure that our families thrive.

Our Philosophy

Uplift Family Services believes the most effective form of care for children, youth and their families is based in the community, using strengths and needs to define and individualize service. We believe children and families should have the greatest possible access to services, as well as maximum voice and choice in planning, carrying out and evaluating those services.

Our Community Supporters

EMQFamiliesFirst, a private, nonprofit agency, works closely with county partners in children and family services. We take pride in our ability to take a leadership role in implementing coordinated services and being responsive to our county partners and families. We have an active donor community, including organized groups of volunteers who contribute countless hours of time and talent coordinating fundraising projects for the benefit of our children and teens at risk or in crisis.
