Welcome to Beyond Emancipation!
B:E is Alameda County's primary provider of services for former foster youth.
Our mission is to support Alameda County’s current and former foster and probation youth to make successful transitions to adulthood and living independently.
Founded in 1995, B:E now serves over 1000 youth ages 16-24 annually.
B:E provides a range of services to help youth through the challenging time of transition from being in foster care to living on their own. See an overview of our programs and eligibility.
