CASE is a collaboration with the Dept. of Human Services, the Children's Council, Wu Yee Children's Services, and SFCD to increase access to appropriate inclusive childcare for children with disabiliites whose parents are making transition from welfare to work.


Family Voices of California (FVCA) is a statewide collaborative of locally-based parent run centers working to ensure quality health care for children and youth with special health care needs.

FVCA builds the capacity of parent centers throughout California to provide families with the information and support they need to make informed decisions about the health care of their children. FVCA provides information and a forum for parent centers and families to advocate for improved public and private policies, builds partnerships between professionals and families, and serves as a vital resource on health care.
