The Community Services Bureau (CSB) is part of a national network of Community Action
Agencies established by the 1964 War on Poverty to address the underlying conditions that cause
poverty. In 2006, the Community Services Department was made a bureau of the Employment and
Human Services Department. With an annual budget of almost $30 Million and approximately 400
employees in 13 service locations across the county, CSB is the largest childcare provider in Contra Costa

primarily full-day, full-year Early Childhood Education Services to over 2,100 children and their families.
