Building brighter futures since 1921


Oakland Family Services is a private, nonprofit human service organization serving the area since 1921. It offers a continuum of prevention, education and treatment services that span the human life cycle, enrich the lives of children, strengthen families and rebuild lives. The agency builds brighter futures in our community through adoption, foster care, parenting and child development programs, free preschool for at-risk youth, and counseling services for those of all ages dealing with depression, anxiety, substance use issues, and severe emotional disturbance in youth. Oakland Family Services has five locations across Oakland County, in Pontiac, Berkley, Rochester and Walled Lake.
