Children & Family Resource Services

CFRS is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) under the umbrella of the Santa Barbara County Education Office. We have three programs within our department:

Welcome Every Baby/Family Connects (WEB/FC) is an evidenced-based community-wide nurse home visitation program for parents of newborns and is inclusive of all income and socioeconomic levels. The visits assess maternal/newborn health and psychosocial status, provide parent education, and lactation support and a warm handoff to community services.

Health Linkages provides dental screening, oral health education and fluoride varnishes to low-income children in targeted subsidized preschool, childcare and elementary school programs in Santa Barbara County. The orthodontia program also provides braces for middle school youth in specific communities and schools.
Health screenings and social support services are offered to early childhood education and care programs. Access to health care is made available to community members of all ages through Medi-Cal enrollment and health navigation assistance.

Santa Barbara County Promotores Network operates under the CFRS department by providing staffing and infrastructure support to connect promotores with agencies and programs designed to support and advocate for healthy communities through outreach, education, policy change and linking resources. They are Spanish speaking members of the Latinx community who understand and respect the traditional beliefs of their community and help agencies integrate these cultural beliefs in their programs and services.

We provide school-based mental health navigation and referral services to children and families with support while accessing services. Services are available in English and Spanish. We do not directly provide counseling or case management. We link children, youth and families with the services they need and provide support during that process.
