SWe offer the following Services


Building on over 65 years of experience addressing children’s mental health needs, East Bay Agency for Children today invests over $13 million annually in over 20,000 East Bay children and families through a comprehensive continuum of services designed to reduce the incidence and impact of childhood trauma and adverse experiences resulting in immediate and long-term life improvement for those children and their families.

 

EBAC’s programs are particularly effective as they benefit from our staff and agency experience, knowledge, cultural humility and language competence in serving children and communities disproportionately impacted by poverty, violence, marginalization, loss of loved ones, and other forms of trauma.

 

EBAC  delivers services that:

 

Build Resiliency to help children and families protect themselves against long term harm from chronic exposure to adversity.

 

Aid in Recovery by treating children exhibiting traumatic stress symptoms and emotional or behavioral disorders.

 

Prevent the risk of childhood adverse experiences.

 

To optimize our efforts, we offer a variety of services that complement one another to effectively address the complex needs of children and family. To reduce barriers in receiving our services, we deliver the majority of our services in schools and community locations where children and families already congregate. Additionally, our staff are primarily from the communities they serve, which helps children and families feel comfortable and trusting of those offering assistance. And finally, we conduct our work within a trauma-informed framework, understanding that children exposed to trauma see the world differently and are often misunderstood.

 

Program areas include intensive therapeutic health, school-based behavioral health, and family and community wellness. And in 2015, EBAC began coordination of the Trauma Transformed T2, the 7 bay area county collaborative to improve the trauma-informed system of care for children needing services for exposure to trauma.

 

 

Together we can reduce the impact of trauma and social inequities.
