Youth & Family Services Counseling

Strengthening Family Relationships


Parenting is a rewarding and challenging job. Children can change dramatically as they grow, and frequently parents are left wondering how to handle situations and need someone to turn to for assistance.

The City of Fremont Human Services Department offers multi-lingual and multi-cultural counseling for youth and families to help improve family relationships in times of stress or crisis, with special attention to early childhood development and adolescent issues.
