Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

'Beverly Community Playschool' was opened by local volunteers and parishioners of St. Peter's Episcopal Church in June of 1972. The school's primary purpose was to provide a free educational opportunity for children with special learning needs. In 1973, the program was incorporated as a private, non-profit organization, with the additional role of providing the parents of the children enrolled with specific training and support.
In 1975, with Chapter 766 funding from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the school opened five days a week, added transportation and meal services, started a family day care component, hired paid staff, and adopted a new name 'Beverly Preschool Learning Center.' In 1988, the school age child care program was started with funding from the city of Beverly's Community Development Office. Our current name 'Beverly Children's Learning Center, Inc.' was assumed in 1989 to better reflect the range of ages and comprehensive services provided.
