About Uplift Family Services

Who We Are

Uplift Family Services is a statewide nonprofit that helps children and families. The agency is one of the largest, most comprehensive mental health treatment programs in California. Uplift Family Services takes a state-of-the-art approach to children and adolescents with complex behavioral health challenges and helps them recover from trauma such as abuse, severe neglect, addiction and poverty. For youth that exit our programs, over 90% are living in the community, staying in school, and remaining out of trouble.

Serving many parts of California, Uplift Family Services is headquartered in Campbell, with offices in San Jose, Los Gatos, Fairfield, Concord, Davis, Sacramento, Fresno, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles.

We also have Foster Care and Adoption services in over 30 California counties.

Services Provided in Santa Clara County

24/7 Intensive Family Services

Highly structured, 24-hour-a-day treatment program that provides a nurturing place for children to live in a neighborhood setting. Through a strength-based, family centered planning process, the team works in partnership to identify what skills and resources are needed. Services include psychiatric assessment, evaluations, medication and therapy for individual children or groups of children and their families. 

Addiction Prevention Services

Informs and educates youth, families, schools and communities about the dangers of adolescent drug and alcohol use, prescription pill swapping, teen pregnancy, and other unhealthy behavior choices. Within identified schools and communities, APS supports children, teens and families in and out of the classroom.

Autism Spectrum Disorder Services

Uplift Family Services works closely with families, primary and specialty care physicians, pediatricians, schools and community agencies to provide and coordinate a continuum of high quality services. The program serves children with ASD and other developmental disabilities and their families at home, school or our clinic. Our extensive services for children and families range from assessments to home-based and school consultation to professional development.

Continuum of Crisis Services

When a child or teen is in immediate crisis, including facing possible hospitalization, we are here to help with a range of services to provide swift care and safety. The Continuum of Crisis Services includes the Mobile Crisis and Community Transition Teams which work together to help children recover from traumatic experiences in a safe and caring environment. 

Experiential Therapy

Children sometimes have difficulty expressing themselves in words, especially if they've been abused or neglected, or are suffering from a mental illness or emotional disorder. Many find it easier to express themselves through art, music, dance, recreation therapy, or pet-assisted and equine therapy.

Family Finding

Helps reconnect foster children with safe, healthy family members and speed their recovery from emotional trauma. Using internet search technology, we are able to find biological family members for children in the system. Once we have identified family members, we work to reestablish relationships and explore ways to find a permanent family placement for the child.

 

Family Therapeutic Services (Outpatient)

Traditional clinic-based and community-based treatment services offered at home and in school for individual children and adolescents with serious emotional disorders and for family members in crisis. Family Therapeutic Services (Outpatient) helps children and their families alleviate suffering, recover from trauma, restore and maintain a healthy level of day-to-day functioning, and work toward optimal growth and development at home and in the community.

Identifying and helping at-risk families with young children can prevent problems from spiraling out of control and becoming serious emotional disorders that surface years later. These Uplift Family Services services help families nurture their children in the early years of life, through home counseling visits, parenting workshops, health care, dental care, mental health services, and more.

 

Foster Care and Adoption Services

Uplift Family Services places children ages birth through 21, who have been referred by the court, in certified foster homes. We provide ongoing support services to foster children and families. Our staff works directly with immediate and extended biological family to facilitate reunification and permanency. For the child whose permanent plan is adoption, we are a custodial adoption agency licensed by the State of California to provide a full range of adoption services.

Intensive Treatment Foster Care

KATIE A

Children and teens referred to KATIE A are experiencing obstacles that threaten their home, relative or foster care placements or are at-risk of developing mental health challenges. The program helps stabilize home placements and supports family reunification, stabilization and overall well-being. 

Matrix Program

The Matrix program works with youth (ages vary by County) in the child welfare system to ensure that they make a successful transition to adulthood. Matrix serves youth who would otherwise be placed in a receiving center or group home (varies by County) due to difficulty finding an appropriate foster family placement. Matrix is supportive of youth who have non-traditional families or limited community support. 

Prevention and Early Intervention Services

In-home support and case management services for families whose potential child welfare case has been assessed and not formally opened, but who still have needs. Focuses on enhancing parenting, communication and obtaining community resources.

Psychiatric Services

Our staff of highly qualified child and adolescent psychiatrists specializes in treating children and adolescents with serious emotional disorders and their families. As members of the treatment team, our psychiatrists perform evaluations and prescribe medication. Uplift Family Services is a leader in behavioral and mental health issues for children and adolescents, focused on treating the whole person and providing individualized assessments and treatment plans that include the child's and family's sociocultural context.

 

School-based Treatment

Provides mental health services in the context of a regular school day. The students spend a class period or a partial day in the enhanced classroom where they receive academic instruction combined with mental health support services. The balance of the day is spent in mainstreamed classrooms.

 

System of Care

Serves children and teens, ages 5-19, in the child welfare system who are experiencing obstacles in different life domains, or who are at risk of becoming further involved in the juvenile justice system. System of Care provides services tailored to the unique strengths, values and norms of each child and family and offers an array of services. 

Therapeutic Behavioral Services

Available for eligible children who need short-term behavioral support in addition to any other mental health services they are receiving. The goal is to help children avoid being placed in a higher level of care, such as residential treatment, or to help children make a successful move to a lower level of care, such as returning home after residential treatment. TBS focuses on changing a child's behavior while emphasizing the child's strengths and works in collaboration with the child, caregivers and primary mental health provider.

Wraparound (Program UPLIFT®)

Wraparound offers individualized, comprehensive, community-based services and supports to children and teens with serious emotional and/or behavioral disturbances so they can be reunited or remain with their families and communities. Wraparound is based on a model of service that develops plans centered on the family and are built upon the child's and family's unique strengths.
