Community Hubs

by Placerville Newswire / Feb 23, 2018 / comments


El Dorado County and its partnering agencies care about the health and well-being of our residents.  Research shows that relationships are the main ingredient that helps us overcome though times.  That is why the Community Hubs project is so important.  The Community Hubs help build connections to support families in being healthy.

Community Hubs are a partnership between First 5 El Dorado, EDC Library, EDC Early Care and Education Planning Council, EDC Child Abuse Prevention Council, EDC Health and Human Services Agency’s Maternal Child and Adolescent Health Program and Mental Health Services Act.

El Dorado County Public Libraries are pleased to host the Community Hubs sites and to be a place where families can learn and grow.  Each Hub has a multi-disciplinary team that includes an Early Childhood Literacy Specialist, Family Engagement Specialist, Community Health Advocate and Public Health Nurse with the common goal to increase resiliency in families. 

At the Community Hubs, families can find weekly story times, playgroups, parenting tools and workshops, health and developmental screenings, referrals to community resources and more.  The Hubs provide critical support and resources to parents, and opportunities for children to socialize, learn and make friends.

Through Community Hubs and by working together, we can strengthen the families that shape our community.
