The Founding of ChildNet Youth and Family Services 

Exym customer, ChildNet Long Beach has recently celebrated 50 years of serving vulnerable children and families, and we want to celebrate the amazing work that they do. ChildNet Youth and Family Services was founded in 1970 by a group of Long Beach civic leaders whose goal was to foster the social, emotional, and educational development of troubled and disadvantaged youth.

ChildNet Youth and Family Services has since grown from a single youth home that served an average of 100 boys annually to an organization with seven locations, covering five counties, serving upwards of 12,000 clients annually.

With a mission to provide safe homes, education, and counseling to vulnerable children and families, their program philosophy reinforces personal responsibility and emphasizes the need for a strong family unit.

ChildNet Programs

ChildNet has a variety of programs that serve the needs of the community. From adoption services and foster family services, to therapeutic behavioral services and relative home assessment services, ChildNet has identified the needs in their community and found innovative ways to meet those needs. In their largest program, Behavioral Health Services, they provide mental health services and counseling for children from infancy to young adulthood.

They have approximately 95 clinicians and 20 clinical supervisors who have been trained in one or more of the six evidence-based practices they offer to clients and their families. ChildNet's practices have proven to be effective in diminishing or eliminating the emotional and behavioral symptoms that interfere with the youth’s functioning at home, in school and in the community.


ChildNet Youth and Family Services + Exym Foster Care Software

ChildNet moved to Exym’s foster care software EHR platform in 2020. Transitioning a large, established organization to a new EHR can seem intimidating, but Exym is committed to supporting customers with a level of service that makes the process smooth and painless.

Exym provides an implementation manager that will work with you every step of the way while getting your new EHR up and running. ChildNet Youth and Family Services COO Monica Quinones said about their move:

“Exym offers a user-friendly platform for the field workers and excellent customer service. They are always willing to help.”
