Faces of Marin’s Local Businesses: Side by Side


Side by Side

At Side by Side, we walk with young people impacted by adversity on their journeys to heal from trauma, restore resilience, and embrace their potential. We provide comprehensive essential services that honor our clients’ unique needs and strengths to prevent the escalation of dangerous conditions and behaviors and set them on a positive path. And against the backdrop of the COVID-19, our behavioral and mental health services are needed now more than ever.

From special education and early intervention in school to LGBTQ support and transitional housing for foster youth, Side by Side provides the safe space most have missed in their lives. When they feel seen for who they are today, we believe the young people we serve can move with confidence toward a future with meaning and connection.

For 125 years, Side by Side has been at the forefront of best practices in child welfare. Today, Side by Side operates in four counties – Marin, Alameda, Sonoma, and Napa – each year reaching over 2,500 youth ages 5-26 and family members.
