ACTION ALERT: SB-426 CA Families and Children Home Visit Program

A Message from our CEO

Dear CFRA Members,

The Child Abuse Prevention Center (CFRA's parent organization) is sponsoring SB 426, which will begin the hearing process shortly. The bill has several elements: home visitation, family resource centers, and national service participation. It is authored by Senator Richard Pan who is well aware of the success and evaluation evidence of the family resource center based home visitation program we have operated for twenty years. It would fund three pilot projects. (View the SB 426 Fact Sheet.)

This bill is a toe in the water for funding going directly to family resource centers. I am asking for your support by taking five minutes to update our template letter and send it via email to our staff. Your support will make a great deal of impact. We will be looking to our partner national service participating agencies to testify and help to inform our state elected officials about the value of service.

Please fill out this Letter of Support for SB 426, and email a copy to by Monday, March 27, 2017. Jamie will forward to the people listed in the letter.

Your support and counsel is welcomed and appreciated.

Sheila Boxley
President & CEO
