In 1976, Connections For Children (CFC) was founded in Santa Monica as one of the first child care resource and referral agencies in California. Now, 40 years later, CFC has helped tens of thousands of families meet their needs for child care and early education. Today, CFC helps more than 3,000 families annually of all income levels obtain quality child care arrangements, including free referrals, parent education and family development resources.
Connections For Children provides services as far north as Malibu and as far south as Rancho Palos Verdes, encompassing 14 cities on the Westside and South Bay.
We are expecting about 50 to 65 families including families that can speak to media about their experiences with CFC.
WHEN: The free celebration is on April 11 from 9am-11am, during the Week of the Young Child, which runs April 10 – 16.
WHERE: Virginia Avenue Park in Santa Monica – 2200 Virginia Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90404 – in and around the Patio Room.
