Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Since 1960, We Care Services for Children has helped change the lives of Contra Costa's most vulnerable children. Providing each child with a customized, flexible set of services tailored to his or her unique needs and working closely with each family are the first steps to success. Our highly-qualified staff members provide critical treatment of significant issues in order to change each child's trajectory and capacity.

At We Care, our passion is to nurture a sense of discovery, joy, and love for learning in every child through our early intervention and preschool programs. We guide them on this road to discovery with our research-based standards and assessments along five developmental domains:
1) language;
2) self-help;
3) social and emotional development;
4) physical development; and
5) cognitive development.

Our mental health programs provide state-of-the-art interventions and evidence-based programs uniquely suited to the needs of young children and their families.

For over a half-century, We Care has helped thousands of children and their families address the unique challenges they face. Our commitment to each child's growth and potential affects everything we do – from the types of programs we offer, to the relationships we form with our families. To provide the best possible support, we offer state-of-the-art assessment, treatment and education.

Each member of our staff, including the executive director, program directors, therapists and teachers, are hired for their experience in the fields of early childhood development, mental health therapy, occupational and speech therapy, and early childhood education. We provide training and education to our staff to assure they are following best practices and are current in their field of expertise. We are well known in the community for our expertise and innovative early intervention childhood services.

Each day at We Care, talented and caring people work hard to ensure that our mission statement comes alive in the impact we have on young, vulnerable children. Our We Care team (teachers, therapists, volunteers, and board of directors) all play an integral part of delivering critical services to the families that need them the most.

This coming year, we will bring new programs, new collaborations, and easier access to our services for families throughout Contra Costa County. We will continue the development of our integrated services addressing the mental health needs of children with behavioral issues and the developmental needs of children with disabilities. We will further develop and expand our capacity to respond to trauma-based disabilities in Contra Costa's children and families. We will expand our impact on special-needs treatment through new collaborations with a greater reach throughout our community.
