Counseling4Kids is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that provides effective mental health services to abused and neglected children and youth in the foster care system throughout Los Angeles County, as possible. Over 75 licensed therapists provide in-home therapy to over 1,600 children per year. Our services are funded by the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health.
Goal: To provide mental health services to children in Los Angeles County’s foster care system.
Reason: There had been a scarcity of mental health providers treating children who were in need of healing from the abuse and neglect they had suffered. Initially, Counseling4Kids treatment programs worked with 8 therapists providing services for 25 clients.
Today: Counseling4Kids therapists provide weekly in-home therapy sessions to children from ages 3-18, many of whom have experienced extreme trauma from severe abuse and neglect and exhibit symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Our range of services include: individual therapy, family therapy, psychological evaluation, medication support, case management and referral to community resources.
