page graphic¡CONECTATE! Family Life Center

In 2004, CCC was awarded the Family and Community Violence Prevention three-year, $750,000 grant through the U.S. Office of Minority Health. CSUF’s Center for Community Collaboration was one of twenty-two University recipients nationwide. Family Life Center was established at the Richman Elementary School in Fullerton to provide quality after-school and family violence prevention programming.

The ¡CONECTATE! Family Life Center’s goal was to reduce the incidence of violent and abusive behavior in a largely Hispanic community by implementing an after-school program for 40 fourth and fifth graders and their families. The program focused on academic, recreational, cultural, career and personal development, as well as, family bonding.

The ¡CONECTATE! Family Life Center worked in collaboration with community-based organizations and CSUF departments including Human Services, Kinesiology and Health Promotion and Child and Adolescent Studies. CSUF’s involvement also includes providing student Interns and Mentors as well as Titan Sports Camp and UEE Art Camps.

Early Care and Education Research

The Children and Families Commission of Orange County sponsored a survey of programs serving preschool children and their families including county agencies, school districts, state and federally-funded programs, ROP providers and Community Colleges to assess the “Best Practices” in Early Childhood Education. The assessment included interviews with representatives from each of these agencies, site visits and both quantitative and qualitative analysis to compare standards for early childhood education and from school readiness interventions.

Social Welfare in the United States: Osaka Jikei College

From 2003 to 2007 CCC provided instruction and community outreach training to 40-75 international social welfare students from Osaka Jikei College in Japan. The Japanese students engaged in learning with the CSUF Human Services students through academic presentations and social interactions. The instruction focused on the topics of social welfare education, child welfare, elderly services, family resource centers, community health clinics and hospital administration. Outreach was conducted at family resource centers and community health clinics.
