Horizons Family Counseling

Horizons Family Counseling, a division of the Livermore Police Department, was originally developed in 1973 when the City Manager was awarded a grant for a Juvenile Delinquency Prevention Program.  Since its inception, Horizons has expanded to offer a variety of services to Tri-Valley families and their children, including family counseling, case management, and parent training.  Presently, the Alameda County Juvenile Probation Department provides approximately half of the funding for Horizons’ services.  The other major funding sources are the Cities of Livermore, Pleasanton, and Dublin.

Our Mission
To address the mental health needs and strengthen the relationships of youth and families in the Livermore and Tri-Valley area by providing effective, strength-based, counseling programs and services.  We partner with the City, community organizations, police, and school districts to provide innovative and exceptional service to help create solutions to the challenging problems facing families today.

Our Services
