Promoting Healthy Development

Building Capacity to Effect Change in Communities

Encouraging Volunteerism

Our school and community-based health centers serve as hubs of integrated, coordinated services and programs where youth and families can find support, resources, and community. These hubs include Healthy Start programs, high school health centers, community schools, and a First 5 Center.

BACR strives to create vibrant, accessible, inclusive centers that are safe, open, and nurturing places for participants to belong and call home. Our programs are delivered in partnership with First 5 Contra Costa, California Healthy Start, public schools in Richmond, San Pablo, El Sobrante, Hercules, and San Francisco, and a large number of community service providers who deliver coordinated services at each center.
