A Community That's Caring and Responsive


Child Advocates of Placer County & Family Mentor program showcased a family with two children with special needs, one of whom is autistic. The children were returned to their parents through the Family Maintenance Dependency Program in June 1013. Not only was this case successfully closed November 2013, but the attorneys and the judge stated in court during the hearing that these parents, made very impressive life changes. Praise was awarded to the dedication and commitment of the Family Mentor. The Family Mentor referred the parents to numerous resources, and credit was extended to the entire First 5 Team: Lighthouse Parenting Classes, Warmline Support Groups, MIC, WIC, Sierra College FKCE Classes, Safe Kids, PCOE Early Childhood Development, and UC Cooperative Extension Placer County. This was truly a multi-agency First 5 success.
