Bay Area Youth Center

Location: Hayward, CA
Age Group Served: Transition Age Youth
Program Description: BAYC’s mental health programs serve current and former transition-age foster youth, youth involved in the juvenile justice system, and LGBTQ youth. BAYC offers a variety of trauma-informed clinical services to support youth with behavioral and emotional difficulties as they navigate the many challenges of transitioning into adulthood.

Services are fully integrated into all of our housing programs and are also available to aftercare program participants and through collaborations with community partners. All training, supervision, consultation, and treatment interventions are informed by a multicultural and multi-systemic understanding of client circumstance and context, difficulties, barriers and strengths.

Our services are provided wherever youth are most comfortable: in the community (schools, job sites, homes, etc) or at our office in downtown Hayward.
