East Bay Agency for Children
EBAC was established 68 years ago with the goal of providing opportunities that contribute to the physical well-being and social growth of all children. Our mission is to improve the well-being of children, youth and families by reducing the impact of trauma and social inequities.
We are committed to building a comprehensive, place-based continuum of accessible, trauma informed and culturally relevant services that build resiliency, aid in recovery, and, where possible, prevent exposure to adverse childhood experiences. We seek to reduce barriers that contribute to disparities in wellness for socioeconomically disadvantaged and racially marginalized families and to create communities where all children and families have supports to reach their full potential.
Today, EBAC’s programs serve over 20,000 children and families throughout Alameda County each year with the goal of giving each child and family the specific resources, skills, and support they need to help them reach their full potential. The organization has grown its program offerings to offer a wide spectrum of supports and services to the community.
Program areas include:
- Intensive Therapeutic Health (Therapeutic Nursery School, Intensive Counseling Enriched, and Youth Empowerment Services)
- School-based Behavioral Health (Child & Adolescent Counseling)
- Family and Community Wellness (Family Resource Centers, Early Childhood, After-School, Grief & Loss, etc.)
- In 2015, EBAC also 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.
