We have an exciting opportunity to impact the lives of an additional 10,000 children and their families with the development of The Early Child and Family Center in the community of Reseda in the West San Fernando Valley. This new Center is a collaborative project with community partners to bring comprehensive child and family health and well-being services to the San Fernando Valley. The total cost to fund the development of this new center is $14.6 million. The development will be completed in two phases.
- Less than 1% of children in our surrounding communities are receiving intervention services.
- 40% of families have developmental concerns about their child and do not know where to turn for help.
- 65% of children in our surrounding communities have at least one risk factor known to increase the chance of poor health and developmental delays.
Please consider joining this effort by donating toward the Capital Campaign.
We are working to expand our footprint in the San Fernando Valley, by opening a new site in Reseda. A former 1950’s church will become home to CDI headquarters and include an Early Learning Center, CDI Early Intervention Programs, child care, a community conference room and an innovative learning center for not-for-profit collaboration. We ask that you accompany us as we stretch and embrace our neighboring communities. We are calling out for our community members to join us in focusing our priorities around families and raising children.
