Home / Strong Families Alliance of Alameda County


We’d like to introduce the Strong Families Alliance (SFA)  of Alameda County.  The SFA was created in 2020 at a time when our community and the world needed support during times of isolation, fear and uncertainty.  The goal of the Child Abuse Prevention Council is to address the unmet community needs regarding the protection and well-being of children and their families.  One unmet need identified from the 2018 Community Self-Assessment was to connect residents of Alameda County, and the greater Bay Area, to community resources, providers, and supports local to them.

Strong Families Alliance Website Redesign Launch (CLICK HERE TO REDIRECT TO NEW SFA WEBSITE)
The Strong Families Alliance strives to connect the community to each other and to services and supports; available at no cost.  The website will assist people in finding information about trainings, events and information on supporting child safety and well-being, and other resources and information related to children abuse prevention.  Visit  https://www.alamedacountycapc.com/ to  learn more about SFA member organizations and other information and resources in Alameda and it’s surrounding areas.  As you visit, make sure to provide feedback so that we may incorporate those suggestions into our site that engages and educates the community in the areas of child abuse prevention.

Join us for another great family story time, this time with an LGBTQ focus in honor of Oakland’s Pride Month in September.

This FREE virtual event takes place on Friday, September 24, 3:30– 4:30pm with Bay Area Drag Queen SNAXX.
