The Child and Family Guidance Center envisions children and families flourishing in vibrant communities. Established in 1962, CFGC empowers children and families to achieve health and wellbeing through innovative mental health services and community programs. We serve a diverse population of underserved children, from infancy to age 21, and their families. Our clients have serious behavioral, emotional, and/or mental health challenges. CFGC positively impacts the lives of more than 10,000 children and families each year, the majority of whom are low income and face multiple environmental or life challenges. The Child and Family Guidance Center proactively creates community wellness through innovative life-changing mental health services, prevention and early intervention programs.
Mental health disorders, substance abuse, obesity, limited healthcare access and declining health behaviors have a negative impact on our community. Programs like ours have been proven to reduce homelessness, incarceration, suicide, and psychiatric hospitalization. Help create positive health outcomes and increase safety, community wellness and economic prosperity by making a contribution to the Child and Family Guidance Center today. www.childguidance.org
