To provide a “natural resource environment” to underprivileged-vulnerable adults, seniors, high-risk children/teens who suffer from poverty, mental & behavioral illnesses, exploitation, physical & sexual trauma, abandonment, attachment disorders, etc.
We feel it is our purpose and obligation to ensure these groups receive all necessary support, assistance and resources for them to be able to properly function in society.
Our vision is to provide residential programs for adults that deliver comprehensive Case Management and Therapeutic services in a safe and secure environment while in our facilities.
Our vision is to further support youth when they’re placed in foster care homes by providing Mobile Mental Health and Crisis Intervention Services which will include foster parents and families.
G.L.O.M.’s services are aimed at achieving five key results:
This plan for service expansion is our vision. This vision gives birth to our strategy for increasing access to high quality and effective care for children, youth and adults who are in crisis and in need of comprehensive stabilization services.
G.L.O.M. is a decade-old agency created in response to increasing gaps in high quality treatment for foster youth and the adult population in Alameda County. The key values that drive our organization are:
G.L.O.M. is a 501 (C) (3) – Established in 2004 and incorporated in 2005. Historically and continuing today, G.L.O.M. has programs designed to reach individuals in need of support to advance their ability to have a life filled with joy and acceptance.
G.L.O.M.’s Start – As an entity that oversaw all Chaplain Services for the Alameda County Sheriffs Office, in which we provided counseling services and reentry placement for male and female inmates. Our coordination of the development of a treatment team became critical to our work with clients.
G.L.O.M. Today – We are an Adult Residential Facility, licensed for clients with mental health needs. Our mobile therapy and residential support organization provides care to adults as well as foster parents who have children still in need for mental health therapy and residential integration support. We currently have 10 residential facilities, within four counties.
Existing Programs -> Outpatient Services
G.L.O.M. provides Adult Outpatient services inclusive of: Mental Health Services, Therapy Services, Case Management, Patient Brokerage and Medication Support Services.
Outpatient Mental Health Services include:
Why Foster Parents?
Many foster parents have made a major decision to take in a foster child and provide them a home. The ongoing problem we have seen with our residential youth, who transition to foster home placement, is that the parents are not always ready or capable of handling our children who have experienced significant trauma. These youths have been immersed in a traumatic milieu resulting from trauma caused by physical, mental and sexual abuse.
Foster parents need support to be able to maintain and keep the child in their care. This is where the G.L.O.M. Mobile Therapy Team comes into play. We have a Licensed and Licensed Eligible Mobile Therapy Team which will be assigned to specific territories throughout a particular county.
The Mobile Therapy Team will come into the home and provide individual therapy for the child as well as the family to help support unification within the home.
Our Mobile Therapy Team will also provide emergency crisis response support to the family. The team will sit with the parents and give behavioral intervention techniques to help the parents support their child.
The Mobile Therapy Team applies proven skills/techniques to provide day-to-day care for our children with mental and behavioral illnesses. We believe that these techniques are needed by the foster parents in order to help them maintain a healthy, safe and secure environment for our children.
Our Mobile Therapy Team will go into the homes of families who are having problems raising difficult children and provide techniques to help the parents turn a seemingly destructive environment into a healthy-peaceful environment for the parents and the child.
Mobile In-Home Therapy and Residential Support
The G.L.O.M. Mobile Therapy and Residential Support Program offers a team of licensed and licensed eligible therapists and Mental Health Rehabilitation Specialists, who will work as a team to deliver onsite mental health and crisis intervention services for youth experiencing ongoing behavioral health obstacles.
For crisis situations, our Clinicians and family partners will work with the family, in the home, to IDENTIFY, ASSESS, TREAT and STABILIZE the crisis in order to reduce risk of danger to the youth or others consistent with the youth’s risk management and safety plan. For ongoing service needs, we will provide individual rehabilitation collateral case management, individual therapy as determined based upon the client’s treatment plan.
Case Management Services
G.L.O.M.’s Therapeutic Team will identify and provide education about relevant resources, advocating for the youth and the family’s needs within the community. We coordinate care with other providers, linking family members to beneficial services and arranging transportation.
Mobile Therapy Services will be provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Crisis services will include:
Mobile In-Home Therapy and Residential Support
(Adults and Seniors)
G.L.O.M. will provide a separate Mobile Therapy Team who are uniquely trained in geriatric interventions in order to service all adults and seniors who need in-home psychotherapy services.
Our Therapist will visit the home of the adult or senior and provide individual therapy sessions as well as provide support to the live-in guardian or agent within the home.
Along with this service, we will also provide Emergency Response Services to those adults and seniors in need of extra support.
Evidence Based Practice
Our services are delivered by a culturally and ethnically diverse team of professionals who respect client’s strengths, talents and cultural heritage working with each child, family, as well as, adult and seniors, in the context of their histories and experience.
We apply Cognitive-Behavioral and Social Learning Theory principles as the foundation of how we work.
We utilize trauma-informed and evidenced-based modalities for individual/family therapies and access the local communities’ resources to ensure successful program completion, reunification and emancipation.
We use the Center of Excellence for Parenting with Love and Limits, which is a national best practice for effectively working with troubled youth.
Work and Career Ready
