Donate to Brighter Beginnings

At Brighter Beginnings, families of all races, faiths, cultures, beliefs and sexual identity are at the Heart of what we do. Our Mission is to support healthy births and successful development of children by partnering with parents and helping to build strong communities. We live our Mission by providing an integrated model of quality healthcare and support services, and are committed to the goals of social justice, political, and economic equality.

More than 8,000 low-income patients and client families will come through our doors this year:  parents & caregivers and children at our Oakland Center and people of all genders and ages at our Richmond and Antioch Family Health Centers. By 2022, we will be serving approximately 10,000 individuals.

Please join us! Your generous contribution supports true community health – access to child development and counseling through home, office and virtual visits, preventive and primary care for thousands of residents and advocacy for equitable, quality health care for each and every one of us.
