Thank you to each and every one of you that donated to Family Assistance Program this holiday season! We were truly overwhelmed with how many people, businesses, organizations, and the community as a whole wanted to help and give back to those in need. It was heartwarming to watch the toys roll in from multiple toy drives and to see kids wish lists get fulfilled and have Santa aka San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department visit the kids at Hope House. The amount of toys that individuals brought to our Taco Tuesday to donate to the children in our domestic violence program overflowed the luggage cart at Courtyard by Marriott in Hesperia. Our community truly comes together and helps out when it is needed. Thank you again for your help this past year and we look forward to an amazing 2023!
Happy New Years from the C Street Community Center! We are excited to see what 2023 holds for our clients, our Staff and the Community in Old Town Victorville.

In 2020 when the COVID pandemic came upon us, the agency established their first ever Safety Committee. This committee had a member representing every program in the agency, and the different programs could come together and share concerns and resources with each other. Two years later, the Family Assistance Program Safety Committee is still going strong! We are proud to announce our purchase and creation of “Cold/Flu Care Packs” for our clients. This care packs consist of cold medicine, Tylenol or Motrin, Kleenex, cough drops and some Vicks Vapo Rub; it may not be much but we are hoping these care packs will provide clients with some comfort when they are under the weather.
The Victorville Community Center will be hosting the San Bernardino County FREE tax preparation service on March 30, 2023.
Please call the number listed above to schedule your appointment.

What a wonderful team we all are here at Family Assistance Program, a sense of comradery with the other teams and team members in the agency is ever-present. New team members come into the agency, others leave, but new to the agency or not everyone seems very willing to help each other out when in need; willing to share their particular skill or expertise to help another program. It’s reassuring to know that we have that support and that we have so much resource within our own agency to look towards when we find ourselves beyond our scope of experience.
Next Step would like to thank Bernadette Valdez from Open Door and Shelly Thomas, of Youth Services for providing so much support to Next Step over the holiday season to help provide our participants and their families with a wonderful holiday experience. Shelly coordinated Christmas wish/needs list volunteers, in which she linked individual volunteers with a wish/need list written by each child accompanying our participants in the Next Step Reentry Housing Program. She made it possible for one of the mother’s in our program to receive needed items like a child car seat and a toddler bed, mattress and bed set, as well as other wish list items like kids’ books and toys.
Bernadette also offered much support to help our participants have a wonderful holiday season by linking our program to another agency providing our participants with Thanksgiving dinner spread to all our properties. In addition to this, she also linked another one of the mother’s in our housing program to a donor who provided our participant and her child with a needed toddler bed, mattress and bed set, as well as some other general child supplies.
Of course, we also have to mention the maintenance team, Curtis, Rick, Antonio and Tonus. We can’t express enough our gratitude for the hard, physical work you all do. Thank you so very much!
Happy New Year!
Thank you to Home Depot who donated 12 Christmas trees for our programs to have a tree to decorate in their shelter or transitional home! They also fulfilled the wish lists of all of our at risk and homeless youth. Each participant was able to fill out a wish list of the items that they would like for Christmas and they provided each and every thing they requested! This is not the first year that Home Depot has stepped up and given to us during the holidays. We appreciate all that you do to support us each year!
