Children’s Bureau has been helping families in the Antelope Valley since 1985. We provide services to more than 1,000 vulnerable children and parents each year through offices located in Palmdale and Lancaster. We offer a variety of prevention and direct service programs focused mainly on families with children birth through age 12 including foster care and adoption, comprehensive mental health services, parent education and support programs (both in-home and in groups).
