Joy Lok Family Resource Center

Drop-In Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 am – 4 pm

The Joy Lok Family Resource Center is a warm and friendly home away from home for many of our monolingual immigrant Chinese families. We are a busy community hub, linking information and resources to families with various needs and offering many programs that target expecting parents, families with young children and parents/caregivers. Our “one-stop shop” model of providing services has also been instrumental in helping families access multiple resources under one roof including assisting families to access public benefits such as CalFresh and Medi-Cal and applying for low-income housing opportunities.
