Oakland Family Services helps those in the community who need us the most by providing quality treatment, education and prevention services throughout Southeast Michigan. Through our counseling services we provide people with the skills to overcome mental health challenges, such as depression, anxiety and addiction. For teens with serious emotional disturbances, we teach skills that help manage emotions so they can achieve their goals at home, at school and with friends. We find a safe and loving home for children who have experienced trauma, whether it be with foster parents until they are reunified with their parents or an adoptive family.
Our agency invests in children by providing a free preschool for low-income or at-risk children and provides programs that enhance parenting skills, strengthen family relationships, and help children enter school ready to succeed.

“The ability to do so well for so many different people and situations.”
