Who We Are

In 1977, a group of county employees from Calaveras and Amador began meeting with the Mountain Sisters Collective. Both groups were concerned about issues facing the community - notably the lack of adequate child care and the increase in the rates of domestic violence. They worried that local families needed additional services beyond those provided by county agencies, and that rural areas were increasingly challenged to meet the needs of dispersed populations.

In 1980, a non-profit organization was formed: Human Resources Council (HRC), which opened its doors with a staff of four Over the next two decades, HRC grew to include numerous services and programs needed by the residents of the two counties. The Child Care Resource & Referral Programs have been providing services for families in Amador and Calaveras Counties since the formation in 1980.

We are funded by Federal, State and County grants to provide child care information, referral, and subsidy services in Amador and Calaveras Counties.

Children are an essential part of our lives as parents and as a community. The Resource Connection provides programs and services to understand and assist in developing our children, families and community. Children need attention, families don't always have the time to provide as much attention as needed or are looking to improve their children's experiences, as well as there is a community of opportunities for your children to become a part of.

For those interested in caring for children and improving their experience; we offer resources, training and opportunities in child development, care and education.
