Community Resources

The Sandbox Ukiah helps our families to find and utilize community resources.

FIRST 5 Mendocino: Assistance for children ages 0-5 and their families. FIRST 5 Mendocino focuses on: better health care; better nutrition; more exercise; better child care; and better preschool education for our local children.

Raise & Shine Mendocino: Helps families of children ages 0 – 5 find positive solutions to child behavior problems. Trained professionals use research-based, common-sense methods that are very effective, whatever a family’s culture, ethnicity, or income level. Raise & Shine partners take Medi-Cal and other forms of insurance, and offer options for families who are un- or under-insured. También, se habla español.

2-1-1 Mendocino: 2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember phone number and website that connects people in need with important community services. This free, confidential, 24-hour multilingual service also serves as a vital link for individuals seeking to volunteer, provide resources and assist during times of crisis.
