What We Do

Who We Are

On July 1, 2019, Child Care Links and Family Service Counseling and Community Resource Center came together to form a new organization, Hively. Child Care Links was formed in 1976 to support families in finding and paying for child care, and to help child care providers better serve children and their families. Over the last 43 years, Child Care Links has expanded beyond child care services to continue to meet the needs of the families and communities it serves. Now families can gain access to other critical social services, can get resources they need and find a community of support and care to help them thrive. Family Service Counseling and Community Resource Center dates its origins back to 1888. It has provided critical mental health services for children, adults, and families through individual, group and family therapy. Together as Hively, we will be better equipped to provide children and families throughout Alameda County access to the broad array of high-quality social services they need.

The Hively team believes that every child deserves a great start in life. We believe that every child is entitled to a safe and nurturing family. We believe that adults benefit from systems of support that help them grow toward their full potential. We know that families are better off when they have the support and resources they need to raise happy, healthy kids.

We are a committed team of professionals including family navigators, educators, child care professionals, mental health clinicians, and business specialists all dedicated to making sure that people of all ages in Alameda County have the opportunities, resources and support they need to live happy, healthy and productive lives.

Hively is a place where you will find a sense of belonging, where everyone feels cared for and supported, where you and your family will find the resources you need to thrive.
