Youth & Family Programs
Some Youth and Family Programs programs are not open to the general public and require referrals from other organizations. Please inquire for more information.
Another Road to Safety (ARS)
Another Road to Safety (ARS) is an innovative effort between Alameda County Social Services Agency, First 5/Every Child Counts, and three (3) neighborhood collaboratives.
The program serves low to moderate risk families who are diverted from Childrens Protective Services (CPS) to a community based, intensive family support service delivery program. Family-focused, strength-based services will be provided by local community based organizations.

PLACE at Prescott School
Preparatory Literary Academy of Cultural Excellence (P.L.A.C.E.)
(formerly Prescott Elementary School)
PLACE will build upon our two successful family support programs at McClymonds Educational Complex and with Another Road to Safety, a partnership with Alameda County Social Services Agency (CPS). We will replicate the intervention strategy we employ in helping our current families and extend it to serve an additional 20 students and families who seek and/or have need of our services.
With assistance from the PLACE teachers and staff, we will identify students who may have problems at home that are manifest in their classroom behavior and academic work. Like our ARS and McClymonds programs, our focus will be on providing immediate crisis intervention and referrals to longer-term support services, thus assisting families to create a more healthy and stable home environment.

West Oakland Seals Youth Soccer and Tutoring Program
The West Oakland Seals Youth Soccer and Tutoring program is dedicated to children who would otherwise not have the opportunity to play in a formal youth soccer league due to economic difficulty. We have incorporated an academic portion in the athletic program through tutoring to teach children the importance of performing well academically and athletically. We hope, through this combination, to help our children to become eligible for athletic scholarships when they are ready to attend college.
