Lisa Sweet has lived in Contra Costa County for over 30 years. She worked for the county in Health Services as a Registered Nurse and with Children and Family Services (CPS) as a Liaison for adoptive and foster families. Lisa and her family have also served as a Licensed Foster Family in Contra Costa County. Seeing the needs of these families Lisa opened Sweet Beginnings Women’s Resource Center in 2013. Many of the young women we serve are struggling, have no family to assist them and are not involved with the father of their children. We also serve women who are married and have one employed family member , foster parents, and relative care providers. Sweet Beginnings Family Resource Center evolved out of a need to provide prevention instead of responding to a crisis. Sweet Beginnings Family Resource Center is located in Martinez California. We are a Baby Supply Bank providing diapers, clothing and recycled baby equipment both directly to clients and through Community Partners. We are distributing over 8000 diapers a month and are being asked for more. We also offer Open Adoption Options/Facilitation and Reproductive Health classes to women at risk. Our services, assist our most vulnerable population. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a community partner.
