More Information

Community Resources

These resources have been identified by the community and our partners as instrumental in providing needed assistance to the communities in which they serve. The services vary by business. The listing is for informational purposes and does not intend to guarantee the receipt of any services by any provider nor imply the formal endorsement of any agency unless otherwise specified.

Addiction

  

Addiction Resource was founded in 2014 to provide a community for those recovering from addiction and to help patients find the highest quality care for a successful recovery. The goal is to provide resources to help patients and their loved ones so that they may stay on the road to recovery, and can successfully overcome addiction for life. AddictionResource believes in their ability to help improve the lives of others.   Addiction Resource is not a treatment center and does not accept payments or advertising offers. Instead, they work to provide free resources to help people better understand their addiction and motivate them to make the first step in seeking support.

 

 

 

Children and Youth

Advancing Parenting is a small nonprofit with headquarters in Bakersfield, California, pioneering a new kind of child abuse prevention and a new kind of parenting education…one that reaches everyone, everywhere, all the time. One of AP's activities is distributing parenting tips bumper stickers. Parenting tips on vehicles will be read 1000s of times by 1000s of people of all ages for years to come. The tips are parenting behaviors and practices generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children and they focus on character, mental health, and intellect. Individuals, schools, businesses, organizations, and agencies can place them on their vehicles. Schools, businesses, organizations, and agencies can also place sets of the 51 bumper stickers on counters and tables so parents, workers, customers, patients, and clients can help themselves. Instead of a few human parenting educators in a community teaching poorly attended classes, every vehicle becomes a parenting educator doing its job day in and day out 365 days a year. AP's methods are proactive, participatory, public parenting education intended to be a game changer for the prevention of ACES (adverse childhood experiences). Visit advancingparenting.org to see examples and the list of the 51 parenting tips bumper stickers.  Click on the image to enlarge
