We partner with Second Harvest Food Bank to provide free supplemental groceries and nutritional awareness to the community. Our food distributions are held on the First and Third Wednesdays of every month, from 2:30pm to 5pm. Anyone is welcome to attend.

After School Homework Club:
Our after school program offers low-income youth in elementary and middle school homework assistance across all subjects. Our elementary group meets Monday through Wednesday, and our middle school group meets Monday through Thursday. Both groups meet from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Community Advocacy:
We seek to meet the needs of families through bi-lingual, bi-cultural support on both a long and short-term basis. Our drop-in advocacy support aims to help our community access resources and set goals to address issues such as housing, employment, education, domestic violence prevention, childcare and more.

We partner with professionally pre-licensed clinical counselors to offer free counseling and advocacy to youth, families and individuals. Our services provide support for people to learn and access healthy coping skills, stress management techniques and work on other issues as needed.

Parent Education:
We offer a variety of parent education classes and one-on-one sessions, including classes that address a wide range of topics including preventing tantrums, traveling in the car, managing chores, the power of self-esteem, and more. Classes, workshops, seminars and individual sessions are available in both Spanish and English, funding for the program is made available by First 5 Santa Cruz County.

Public Benefits Enrollment Assistance:
Our advocates help with enrollment and reporting for government benefits and services (i.e. Cal-Fresh, unemployment, MediCal, CoveredCA). Our advocates can help you select the best healthcare program for you and your family.

Ocean Scholars:
This environmental education program, held over Spring Break, fosters stewardship of the Monterey Bay & San Lorenzo River. The program is open to small groups of 12 middle school students. During the week-long camp, students are exposed to marine and ecological conservation in their local community.

Summer Fun:
This summer program offers recreation opportunities to low-income youth (ages 8-16). Summer Fun is a collaboration with the O’Neill Sea Odyssey, Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, and more.
