Innovation & Transformation
Our innovative programs have transformed the lives of thousands of children and families living in economically disadvantaged areas. By working with community residents hand in hand, we have empowered individuals to help themselves.
Development & Training
We are very proud to offer high-quality child development services, before and after school care, teacher training, parent training and education, and job training and placement services to low-income, unemployed, hard–to-employ, and under-employed individuals.
Jewel of Our Community
Our Long Beach Child Development Facility, the jewel of our community, attains the highest standards in early education, parent education, and child nutrition program. We are so excited to begin offering this same degree of excellence in child development, parent education, and community services in our sister city of Signal Hill at our state-of-the-art facility at Signal Hill Las Brisas Community Project.
