                  Home visitation during a child’s critical growth period of birth to three can strengthen families and boost the social and emotional development of children. CCRC’s trained home visitors provide education and support to parents helping them give their children a safe and healthy start in life.
Specific goals are to: enhance parent-child relationships, expand parenting knowledge and skills, optimize children’s early health and development, build strong family-friendly communities and promote a safe and healthy home. Staff provide developmental screenings and observations that parents can then use when requesting referrals to regional services.
Hello, brain builder. Did you know that you already have what it takes to be a brain builder? Babies are born ready to learn and the time you spend with your child can help their brain grow - even a few minutes count. You can see for yourself how Vroom tips developed and funded by the Bezos Family Foundation, are fun and easy to use. Once you download the app on to your phone or tablet, you will receive a daily tip (offered in English or Spanish) delivered just for you based on your child’s age. In addition to your daily Vroom tip, there are tons of additional items you can find that are just right for your family.
As a Vroom ambassador, CCRC has been taking these tips and the science behind them on the road - to parents, child care providers and our community partners. We’ve already recruited more than 10,000 California brain builders and we’re expanding our efforts every day.
Emergency Child Care
CCRC worked with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), to design and implement the Emergency Child Care Pilot (ECC). The ECC program provides child care to resource families who take in a foster child between the ages of birth to five with additional services also provided for siblings. The program has three main components – Child Care Navigator (CCN), Family Child Care Providers (FCC), and Mental Health Specialist (MHS). Once the child is placed in care, the CCN assists resource parents with finding quality emergency child care including any subsidized child care for which the family may be eligible. The CCN also helps to secure any additional resources or items they might need such as clothing, car seats, diapers, etc. FCCs who care for the children are paid a monthly reservation fee so that a spot is available as soon as the child is placed. The FCC’s are mandated to attend Trauma Informed Care training and receive continuous coaching and support from the MHS once a child is enrolled. The MHS also conducts drop in visits, observes the child and provider interactions, and provides support with challenging behaviors for both the provider and resource parent. The Pilot was funded by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), W.M. Keck Foundation and the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation. 8
