Today Valley Oak Children’s Services is a dynamic organization focusing on healthy children, families, and a thriving community. We have a wide variety of services developed based on the needs of our community.
Valley Oak Children’s Services was founded in 1980 as a private, non-profit organization, serving children and families in Butte County.
Establishing Agencies like Valley Oak Children’s Services throughout California was an economic support for the community. Child care businesses were beginning to thrive, parents received assistance with finding reliable and safe child care, and businesses could grow because they had a stable workforce.
Funding is provided to Valley Oak Children’s Services to assist low-income parents in paying for child care costs so they could work, go to school or enter a training program that would assist them in becoming self-sufficient.
As a Strengthening Families organization, we strive to build on families’ strengths and infuse the Five Protective Factors in our daily work and interactions with families, child care providers, and the community. Focusing on what’s strong instead of what’s wrong.
