United Advocates for Children and Families (UACF) oversees an ever-growing range of programs across California that have increased the power and participation of culturally diverse families with children who are socially, emotionally, and behaviorally challenged through advocacy, training, education, and support of family-based organizations. We encourage you to donate and get involved to help support our efforts on behalf of children with mental health challenges, and their families.
For more than 20 years, UACF has been a leader in California communities by providing children, youth, and families with the education, information, and resources to effectively advocate for their children and youth, receive necessary supports and services, and to end the stigma associated with mental health challenges.
As we continue to expand our network of parents and families we are dedicated to the expansion and development of our community based chapters as well as the statewide training and technical assistance programs under the UACF Leadership Institute.
Community involvement is one of the best ways to make connections and foster relationships in order to positively impact other lives, as well as your own. UACF is committed to empowering the parent voice and advocating for systems change on all level, and dedicated and passionate volunteers are needed to work at the community level.
