A Home Within was founded in 1994 with just one chapter of volunteer therapists in San Francisco, California. Since then, we’ve expanded to offer free mental health services to current and former foster youth in 20 chapters across 10 states. To expand access for clients, the majority of our nearly 500 volunteer therapists offer telehealth sessions, which also means you can volunteer from any U.S. state as a satellite clinician while still receiving support from our nationwide staff.
Each chapter is led locally by at least one volunteer Chapter Director who works alongside staff to create a sense of engagement and belonging, invites new volunteers to join our network of therapists, builds community partnerships, and increases the visibility of A Home Within by organizing local events. We’re always looking to establish new chapters in more states to serve more current and former foster youth in need of therapy.
