The City of Berkeley Health Officer has ordered residents to shelter in place through May 3, leaving only to receive or provide essential services.

FYC is now closed to clients. Client hours at 1521 University are limited to 10am-12pm Monday-Thursday and 1-3pm on Friday. For now, due to concerns about the small waiting room, hours at Alcatraz will remain the same.

Family, Youth & Children’s Services (FYC) provides Comprehensive Care Services to the residents of Berkeley and Albany. Outpatient services are provided with an individualized, strength-based, client and family-centered perspective that involves interagency and community collaboration.
