FamiliesFirst has been providing support services to children and families since 1974. Today, the agency serves more than 10,000 Northern California children every year. FamiliesFirst betters the lives of children and their families by providing treatment and support services which emphasize CARE-collaboration, adaptation, respect, and excellence. FamiliesFirst of Contra Costa Country provides services for families in need throughout the county. Programs include: the Independent Living Skills Program, Homework Club and Recreational Activities for Children. During 2008-2009, JLOEB updated and categorized the After School Program Library and the Resource Library at the FamiliesFirst facility. Our efforts included creating events to collect new and gently used books and organizing reading materials for FamiliesFirst and updating existing literature for the different programs, which rely on skills-based books and other staff resources. The after-school library is used by children who participate in the after school program or homework club. The resource room is used by the FamiliesFirst families, as well as staff members. League members also helped to plan recreational activities for the children including seasonal parties, and tutoring sessions for the After School Program. These events promoted self-esteem, provided activities for underserved children, enriched academic learning and provided fun to children who need more of it.
