Help for Children Affected By Wildfires
First 5 Association and First 5 California Leaders are stepping up to aid impacted families with babies and young children.
A letter from Executive Directors Moira Kenney, PhD (First 5 Association) and Camille Maben (First 5 California), details the request for the relief fund, including: recovery services e.g. mental health supports for evacuated families, supplies for damaged family child care homes and preschools, family programs that support children affected by fires, and temporary child care supports.
The devastating fires have left families, schools, and child care providers without the basic necessities they need to care for our youngest children. A Generosity site has been established for donations to support First 5 counties affected.
