Sierra Child & Family Services
Welcome to Sierra Child & Family Services Print E-mail

Sierra Child and Family Services provides residential, educational and community based programs for emotionally disturbed girls and boys in Northern California. The program includes a full continuum of care to ensure all children are served in the least restrictive environment possible.


The children at SCFS face a wide range of challenges, including histories  of mental health disorders, learning disabilities, and in some cases, physical or sexual abuse and neglect. Our staff work with children and families as a team to bring an increased level of health and functioning to the entire unit, and to provide a better chance for a successful future. The components of our programs include:

It has been our pleasure to serve our community since 1988, and we have been privileged to work with over 2000 families over the past 20 years. While the work is challenging for the children, families, and our staff, we know there is no greater cause than the care of our children.
