Home / Strong Families Alliance of Alameda County


In January, Family Paths was awarded a contract from Alameda County Social Services Agency to create the Strong Families Alliance of Alameda County, a 13-member coalition of social service providers committed to preventing child abuse. It also provides us the opportunity to lead a county-wide child abuse awareness campaign and utilize our 24-hour Parenting Stress Helpline as the link to referrals to our own and other Child Abuse Prevention, Intervention and Treatment services in Alameda County. The goal is to provide all parents and caregivers easy access to vital services and promote the Strengthening Families Five Protective Factors as proven strategies that help families get through difficult times.

Call Family Paths’ Parenting Stress Helpline at 1-800-829-3777 for:

  • Linkages to the Strong Families Alliance agencies.
  • Resources in and around Alameda County.
  • Voice-to-voice parenting support from our Parent Support Counselors.
