Early Head Start

Our Family Educators make weekly home visits to our Early Head Start participants. This program is for low-income and at-risk families with infants and toddlers, and provides parents with the necessary tools and skills to raise happy, healthy kids. Children and parents benefit from our Early Head start home visits, developmental activities, referrals to community services, and health screenings.

Nurturing Oakland Parents

Nurturing Oakland Parents brings parents and kids together to help bridge gaps and build empathy. Over fifteen weeks, at risk families with kids aged 5-12 will come to CARE House, share a meal, and break into groups. The parents will meet for guided discussions designed to reinforce values like empathy, positive self-worth, open communication and empowerment of children. At the same time, the kids will participate in volunteer-led play groups which mirror the themes of each weekly discussion. The structure of the program helps to strengthen familial bonds, and to establish new ones among program participants.
