Staying Safe and Preventing the Spread



As an essential health care service provider during this national crisis, FACES remains operational.

Our commitment to providing the highest quality care and serving those in-need remains the same.

To ensure the health and well-being of our staff and those we serve,

FACES Centers have made temporary adjustments to our services.

This includes having the majority of our staff work remotely while providing telephonic

and telehealth services to families in need (ie. Zoom/Facetime).

We currently have 175 sessions staffed by professional therapists and monitors each week

on zoom where clients can talk to their counselors in the privacy of their homes.

Please reach out to us at (714) 447-9024 or counseling1@facescal.org for more information.

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Supervised Play Room is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.


FACES was founded in 1988 by three women who saw a need for low and no-cost services for separating and divorced families. The women had worked with families going through divorce and domestic violence issues, and they realized that more help and support with counseling services was needed for families-in-crisis. They had a vision to have family friendly places for clients to receive the services  they needed.

Together they used their resources to build the programs by developing groups specially geared to the single parent in crisis. Through trial and error, (many errors!) we have continually been improving our services to the vulnerable families and children we serve. Families who work or are unemployed, families who have housing or don't have housing and families who have their children or are trying to reunite with their children. We work with adult children of divorce and children who are caught in the crossfire of divorce. Our counseling staff helps families improve the broken lines of communication marked by pain and injury of the former relationship and resentments they find hard to overcome. Our work is not easy, but we see great changes when parents accept new thoughts and behaviors and help them re-frame the homes they once inhabited together. We remind parents that kids didn't ask for this and have to accept moving between two homes. This difficult task of having children less time each week is painful to many parents and the outcome of their decision to separate. When parents let go of old thinking patterns and behave in new cordial communication, their children can prosper. 

FACES is committed to building healthy families and preventing domestic violence by providing counseling, educational groups, and supervised visits for family preservation and divorce help. Our intervention services are outcome-based, integrated treatment models that produce tangible results. We offer services on a sliding-fee scale, dependent on income; with certain programs, our services are free of charge.
