Family Paths was founded in Oakland, CA in April of 1972 as a hotline for stressed parents under the name Parental Stress Service. Since 1985, we have been headquartered at the Grove Building at 18th Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Way and in 2001 purchased the building as our permanent home. In 2005 the organization was re-named Family Paths, retiring the former Parental Stress Service in name only. Today, Family Paths’ 24-Hour Parent Support Hotline continues and the agency thrives as a leader in community mental health, child abuse prevention and treatment, and family support services. In 2014-2015 Family Paths’ Parent Support Hotline fielded over 6,000 calls, and currently has 900 referral sources in our database to help support parents and families in Alameda County.
