Our Kids Our Families School Based Program

The Our Kids Our Families School Based Program offers support services and counseling at no cost to youth and families at ten school sites throughout Hayward.

YFSB’s school based counselors work with youth, as well as their parents and teachers to ensure students’ full and active engagement in school, boost their self-esteem and confidence, and help with their social and/or emotional concerns and academic success. The services offered at the YFSB Our Kids Our Families sites include case management, crisis intervention, individual, family and group counseling, as well as parent and teacher education, consultation and support. The Our Kids Our Families counselors also play an active role in working to improve the school climate at their assigned schools and foster a safe and inclusive school community that encourages and supports student success.

Currently, YFSB has counselors based at the following schools:

  • Bowman Elementary School
  • Treeview-Bidwell Elementary School
  • Lorin Eden Elementary School
  • Stonebrae Elementary School
  • Southgate Elementary School
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School
  • Anthony W. Ochoa Middle School
  • Bret Harte Middle School
  • Mt. Eden High School 
  • Brenkwitz Continuation High School

If you are interested in receiving school based counseling services for your family and your child attends one of the YFSB Our Kids Our Families schools, please contact YFSB or inquire at your child’s school. For life threatening emergencies, call 9-1-1.
