As federal policy changes and volatility continue to have an impact on California’s children and families, the First 5 California Commission is compelled to provide additional support for all of California’s families, including our immigrant families. To help address some of the stress our immigrant families and their children may currently face, we have gathered resources that can assist affected families on a multitude of immigration and stress/trauma-related topics.

The resources below cover topics that will help families stay strong and intact by knowing their rights, providing contacts for legal services, sharing information on coping skills and activities, and providing a directory of immigration resources.

Dealing With Stress and Trauma

In association with Sesame Street in Communities, the First 5 Association developed a guide with tips and methods for families to discuss and manage the complicated issues affecting the lives of many California families, including family separation, trauma, and other community-based anxieties, such as new immigration policy changes. The guide is available in multiple languages.

Other Stress and Trauma Resources Include:
