Capital Campaign

What is the Capital Campaign?

The Early Childhood Mental Health Program is building for the future by expanding our services to reach more families in our West Contra Costa community.   Today, there continues to be more need than our current space can accommodate. As a result, we place dozens of families on our waiting list for services they desperately need.  Now, we have found a way to change this.

We have found a new location with more therapy rooms to accommodate more families and in a location closer to many of those we serve with better access to local public transportation.  We are raising $750,000 to renovate our new building at 200 24th Street, Richmond.

A renovated building will:

  • Increase the number of families that can receive services each day by over 40% (including a state-of-the-art classroom and outdoor playground for our preschool program, 8 therapy rooms and a large training center)
  • Make more efficient use of our time by our entire staff being housed in one location rather than two.

Our Vision

We intend to transform West Contra Costa County by ensuring that all children get a good start in life . . .

We do this by teaching our most vulnerable and impoverished families how to build skills and access resources necessary to live healthy, productive lives. Ready to help? Download our form to pledge now.
