EBCAP’s Community Programs

Our community programs are designed to help people to reach their full potential. It’s our goal to create the bridge to self-reliance. Our programs improve lives through education, skills training, and clinical care when needed. A program like Baby Steps is a great place for parents to learn how their child develops. Our Home Energy Assistance Program helps those who can’t afford to heat their homes. Head Start Programs teach the importance of a child’s healthy development so they can grow and thrive!

EBCAP has Primary, Behavioral and Dental Health Centers throughout the East Bay. We’re unique from other providers because our programs and services go beyond the four walls of our Centers, reaching throughout our communities and neighborhoods. It’s important to us that community members have access to the help they need. That’s why we offer 24/7 support through our call center, and have staff who can travel to meet clients where it is most comfortable for them. Our goal is to help make access to a healthier life easier for everyone! We care for all residents of the East Bay, regardless of their gender, age, race, or income status.
