About Family & Children Services
Since 1948, Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley (FCS), a division of Caminar, has been improving the lives of children, teens, and adults in our community through emotional and mental health services. Family & Children Services counsels teens at risk of suicide, prepares foster youth for success, assists veterans and their families, and helps families heal from violence, abuse, and addiction.
Family & Children Services focuses on promoting healthy development of children and their families. Services are offered in eight languages, including American Sign Language for the hearing impaired — the only service for the deaf in the greater South Bay. The center is open to everyone. More than 60% of all cases deal with child abuse. The Child Abuse Prevention & Treatment Program provides crisis intervention. Each year, 12,000 people are served.
