Our Services

ACS disrupts the school-to-prison pipeline by providing the professional mental health services children need to improve their long-term health and well-being.

Our highly qualified clinicians provide children and families with access to direct, no-cost mental health care and assistance navigating the juvenile justice and child welfare systems.

Your donation makes a difference

Thousands of kids walk through our door looking for a way to turn their lives around. Thanks to your support, they have the help and guidance they need to shift their lives in a positive direction. Please help an ACS child in need today by providing: 

  • Peace - $25 - a child suffering from depression and anxiety learns new coping skills
  • A Voice - $50 - an interpreter builds a bridge between a clinician and immigrant parents
  • Empowerment - $100 - a teen group treatment session is stocked with educational materials
  • Hope - $250 - a family gains access to the resources they need to heal, grow, and thrive

Read how your support is providing a reason to hope that Jacob will be feeling better soon
