What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our clients are children, youth, and young adults, from infancy to 21 years of age and their families, from diverse backgrounds and circumstances, many of whom are under-served populations, all of whom have either behavioral, emotional, and/or mental health challenges. The majority of people served are low-income and face multiple environmental or life problems. This is a test.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We positively impact the lives of more than 10,000 children and families yearly, through the provision of mental health therapy services (4,000 annually) and outreach services (6,000). CFGC provides services to low income families with children that have significant emotional problems requiring comprehensive mental health interventions. Our families often come to CFGC feeling alone, and overwhelmed with the day-to-day challenges of raising a special needs child. The quality of our clinical treatment programs and the efficiency of our daily operations are important elements of CFGC performance management. There are many practices in place that support our effort to attain high quality in everything we do. We continuously review current issues, trends and areas for improvement based on both internal and external sources of information.

Goal 1- Provide High Quality Services - CFGC will refine and strengthen its operations with a focus on high-quality services and implementation of best business practices.
Goal 2 ‐ Broaden Services and Programs - CFGC will broaden services in response to identified community needs and in readiness for the challenges and opportunities afforded under healthcare reform.
Goal 3 ‐ Build Community Awareness - CFGC will develop a community awareness campaign to inform, educate and engage children, families, and stakeholders regarding the importance of addressing children’s unmet mental health needs and build support for CFGC’s services
Goal 4 ‐ Ensure Financial Sustainability - CFGC will maximize public sector contracts, increase individual and corporate donations, and identify and capitalize successfully on private sector opportunities in order to remain fiscally viable and a stable resource for the community.
Goal 5 – Attract, Develop, and Retain Quality Staff - Attract, develop, and retain quality staff by providing a healthy work environment that balances the CFGC’s core mission with that of employees’ wellness and development.

We are able to fulfill our mission with more than 400 experienced and multi-disciplinary professionals which include: Clinical Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Recreation Therapists, Case Managers, Special Education Teachers, Behavior Specialists, Psychiatric Nurse, and Administrative/Support Personnel. We proactively create wellness through innovative mental health services, prevention and early intervention programs. The Child and Family Guidance Center serves children and their families at schools, in their homes, and in collaboration with many social service agencies. Our outpatient services are available in English and Spanish. We specialize in offering high quality individual, family, and group therapy; psychiatric evaluation and medication management; rehabilitation and skill building; and case management services.

Established in 1962, the Child and Family Guidance Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit agency that serves the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley regions of Los Angeles County. The Center provides a continuum of high quality mental health care, supportive social services, and linkages to community resources. These services are provided both to children and their families, especially those who are economically disadvantaged or otherwise at high risk. With a staff of over 400, including many mental health professionals, the Center is headquartered in Northridge, operates six service locations and has annual revenues of $34 million.
