Agency Overview

Child, Family and Community Services, Inc. is a nonprofit organization providing education and family support services to qualified low income families and children with special needs living in Southern Alameda County.  The agency began in 1965 as a summer program and was incorporated in 1974 to become the Grantee agency for the Head Start Program of Southern Alameda County.  The State funded California Child Care Alternative Payment Program was added to the agency in 1980, and the Early Head Start Program for infants and toddlers began in 1996.  The programs of CFCS currently serve almost 3,000 families each year throughout the south county areas.  The Board of Directors of CFCS has maintained the original agency mission while continuing to add funding and programs to expand services for children, families and communities.
