Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
HABLA is a home-based literacy program that models to parent's more effective ways of reading and playing with their children to promote language and basic skill development, necessary for a succesful educational start. In this manner, HABLA helps parents achieve their true potential as their child's first and most important teacher.
The Children and Families Commission will be partnering with HABLA (Home-based Activities Building Language Acquisition), which is a project of UC Irvine that is working in collaboration with the Santa Ana Unified School System and AmeriCorps; it offers home visits to parents and children to increase the school readiness of economically and educationally disadvantaged Latino children who are two- to four-year olds, most commonly those living in Santa Ana. HABLA's staff includes over 30 home visitors (including 16 AmeriCorps members) each of whom offers a 23 week course of home visitation to provide literacy and language coaching of the parents and educational books and toys to help the parents realize their roles as their children's first and most important teachers. Home visitors serve between 2 and 16 families per year and children and parents participate in the program for 92 home visits spread over two years.
