Public Notice:

At Familylinks, our priority remains the health and safety of our clients and our team, and we continue to take measures to protect against the spread of the COVID-19. Last week we made the decision to cancel all events and suspend volunteer activities until further notice. This week we have made the necessary modifications to our programs and services, in accordance with guidelines set by local and state government, so we can continue to serve individuals and families in western Pennsylvania.

As public health officials assess the risk, we are closely monitoring the spread of the virus and evaluating potential implications. We will continue to share all updates on our website and social media pages.

The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services has created a support and referral helpline for COVID-19. To review the details click here.

Mental Health or Behavioral Issues

Pathways to Independence

Clients are referred by Allegheny County Human Services Rapid Response Team; families cannot register a child for this service directly.

Pathways to Independence provides a safe and therapeutic environment for children and youth with mental-health issues or identified special needs to live and receive specialized care. Pathways is specially tailored to children and youth who simply can’t stay at home with family because of issues stemming from their mental health diagnosis, health issues or other similar challenges.

Outpatient Mental Health - School Partnership

Our School Partnership only serves students enrolled in the schools that Familylinks partners with. If your child may benefit from counseling, please consider our Outpatient Mental Health Clinic.

Mental health is far from an adults-only matter. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, half of all mental health disorders show their first signs before the person affected turns 14.

East Liberty Resource Coordination

In a new program established in 2015, Familylinks is working with East Liberty Development, Inc., to help residents of subsidized housing in Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood to thrive. East Liberty has been the site of a great deal of change in recent years; East Liberty Resource Coordination is an effort to help the most vulnerable members of the community to continue to improve their lives and remain in their homes.
