Join us as we celebrate our partnership with Ten Thousand Villages on April 26th. Mention Santa Maria, and 15% of your sales will benefit Santa Maria's Family Child Care program. Visitors will also have the chance to be entered for raffle prizes!

Santa Maria Community Services has an established network of family child care providers that receive individual coaching on areas of social emotional development and kindergarten readiness skills of the children in their care. Educational supplies that support the curriculum, monthly trainings to help providers meet licensure requirements, and quarterly group gatherings of providers are a beneficial supplement to the monthly coaching visits. Research shows that quality in home care improves with professional training, participatory experiences and being actively involved in networks of other providers. 

Ten Thousand Villages (one of the world's largest fair trade organizations and a founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization), is an exceptional source for unique handmade gifts, jewelry, home decor, art and sculpture, textiles, serve ware and personal accessories representing the diverse cultures of artisans in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Product sales help pay for food, education, healthcare and housing for artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed.
