    CONCORD, Calif., September 2, 2020 This summer, Contra Costa Family Justice Center was able to distribute over 5,000 tote bags with goodies for their Summer Camp at Home program.  As part of their child abuse prevention program, they partnered with 45 participating agencies throughout Contra Costa County and each “goody bag” included education materials, information about at-home summer activities at Family Justice Center or in their neighborhoods or in the county?), and child abuse prevention messaging. 
    “We would never had been able to provide these Summer Camp bags to so many children in our community without the support of our participating agencies and partners.  We are so grateful for the support of our community and this program put a wonderful smile on thousands of children,” says Executive Director, Susun Kim.  To learn more about programs to support children, victims of domestic violence or elder abuse, please visit us at www.cocofamilyjusticecenter.com.  Your donations and support will help so many vulnerable women, children and seniors in our community.  Join them at their annual Building Safety Through Community virtual fundraiser on September 10, 2020 by registering at http://www.cocofamilyjustice.org/building-safety-through-community/
