BCP Family First Program

Many students at UC have family needs and other obligations outside of school that can present obstacles in their learning careers. The Family First Program aims to eliminate the barriers specifically related to accessing diapers and other childcare items for UC community members with children in their families.

To initially launch this program, supplies will be gathered through donation drives. Members will then be notified of the donations as they come in and can request supplies. As the program expands and gathers steady sources of supplies, the structure of the program will be subject to change including greater access to more items. 

If you are interested in participating in the pilot group, please fill out the interest form linked here
