DAYS Long Beach understands that supporting the needs of the youth in our community also requires us to support the needs of their family. Families are the cornerstone of success for many youth. Unfortunately many families lack knowledge or access to the resources needed to support increased success for their children. DAYS Long Beach works with our partners to ensure the families in our community have the support needed to be a resource for their children and the community as a whole.

Parent Empowerment
ELL - English Language Learning (English as a Second Language)
