Community Resources for Children is a Proud Napa Valley Give!Guide Participant
We have so much to be thankful for this year: We are thankful for our community for pulling together to help each other during the Napa fires; thankful for local businesses that provided free meals, accommodations and services to those affected by the fires; thankful for local officials who worked long hours to keep us informed, thankful for first responders from near and far who kept us safe; thankful for volunteers who were so generous with their time, and thankful for donors who were able to help financially! You can continue to help those affected by the fires by donating to CRC through the Napa Valley Give!Guide through December 31st. With your support, CRC will be able to continue assisting families who need our help the most.
Fire Recovery Assistance
Recovery will take a while and the long-term impact of the fires are just now starting to be felt. Lost wages, unemployment, and housing affordability affects many of the families we serve and remains a concern for the foreseeable future. Community Resources for Children can help alleviate some of the financial and emotional burdens faced by families and child care providers during difficult times by:
Offering child care providers scholarships for health and safety training and working with them to establish emergency plans so that children under their care are safe during a fire, an earthquake, etc.
Giving child care providers support and resources about coping with a disaster or traumatic event so that they, in turn, can support the children under their care.
Assisting families who need help finding and paying for child care.
Offering FREE family activities and access to school readiness programs for children with little or no previous preschool experience.
Community Resources for Children (CRC) is a nonprofit, community-based organization providing resources for the early care and education of children in Napa County. Established in 1978, we now serve more than 4,300 people every year with programs that promote quality early learning environments and experiences for children at home, in child care, in preschool, and throughout the community. We also support child care providers through coaching, licensing and professional development opportunities; we coach parents in choosing the best child care options that fit their individual needs, and we provide financial support for working families in need of child care.
