About Us

For over 60 years, East Bay Agency for Children has maintained a reputation of excellence in the services we provide. East Bay Agency for Children was founded in 1952 and since then has grown into a comprehensive regional agency making a lasting impact in the lives of more than 21,000 children and families every year. East Bay Agency for Children builds brighter futures and stronger communities by promoting the health, safety and educational success of our children and youth, and their families. As a result, our programs, located throughout Alameda County, prepare children to succeed in school; assist families through times of crisis; provide communities with access to health resources; and provide therapeutic support to children who have suffered from abuse and/or neglect. Our mental health services, violence prevention workshops, after-school academic and enrichment activities, case management and family support services are recognized as state and national models. This integrated approach addresses core issues at the heart of the trials facing our communities and provides health, hope and opportunity for children and families.

Day Treatment Programs: East Bay Agency for Children’s Intensive Day Treatment Programs provide children safe and supportive places to learn, and help children make successful transitions to mainstream school environments. We serve preschool age children in our Therapeutic Nursery School on the Oakland/Berkeley border and elementary school age children at our Day Treatment and Counseling Enriched Class programs in Oakland and San Leandro.

School and Community Based Mental Health Services: East Bay Agency for Children’s mental health, counseling and prevention services foster school success for children in schools throughout the East Bay, offering counseling and individual and group therapy to children and families.

Student and Family Support Services: Located in Fremont and Oakland, East Bay Agency for Children’s after school and early childhood education programs and Family Resource Centers provide comprehensive and coordinated services reducing or eliminating physical, emotional, and/or social barriers to student success. Our programs look to serve our children by partnering with schools, families, community members and other youth serving organizations to ensure their health and educational well-being. All services are culturally appropriate and integrated into the daily life of the school and communities we serve.
