Brighter Beginnings

Brighter Beginnings

Brighter Beginnings is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has been responding to the needs of families in resource-poor neighborhoods since 1984 when our work began in response to the alarming differences in mortality and illness rates among African American babies compared to other children.

As our holistic view of healthy families developed, so did the array of programs that help our clients cope with multiple personal, familial, and economic problems. We’ve also created a robust collaboration with like-minded agencies that give our client-families access to vital services such as healthcare, childcare, housing, education, job training, and temporary public benefits.

At this juncture, Brighter Beginnings has grown into a respected and well-connected organization with four locations in Oakland, Richmond, Bay Point, and Antioch. We’re blessed with a multi-cultural, bi-lingual staff of passionate and committed family-service professionals; in fact, many of our staff came to this work because of the challenges they faced in their own families.
