School Readiness is a three-month program for families with young children based at the The Priority Center. The School Readiness program assists families in Orange County with children ages 0-8, in reducing barriers to medical care and early childhood mental health services in order to provide them with the healthiest start in life. This program focuses on identifying developmental delays and behavioral issues at the earliest age possible and then links families to appropriate services and support. Our highly trained staff will screen your child in your home and work with your family to provide an individualized plan of services to meet any needs that are identified. Our program has built relationships with early childhood care and education providers, pediatricians, and community- based organizations. We partner with each other to work with families of young children.
Straight Talk Counseling has been in business for almost 40 years. The program was founded in 1971 by active parents who wanted to respond to the growing use of illegal drugs amongst children/teenagers in school settings. In 2019, the agency moved their office to Santa Ana to better serve the OC community. Their main focus is to make mental health, rehabilitation, and substance abuse services available to those who might have limited access to these services.
