California Families in Focus has been asked to volunteer so if you’re available, please join us🙏🏽 April 17, 2019 marks 44 years of a tragic event in human history: the fall of Phnom Penh that led to the Cambodian Genocide. Join the Long Beach Cambodian Community on this day where we honor the approximately 2 million lives lost in the genocide in Cambodia between 1975 to 1979, as well as those who survived. Together, we will reflect on healing, renewal, and honor the resiliency of the Khmer Spirit. There will be guest speakers and an opportunity to create a public awareness art about the Cambodian Genocide, along with a free buffet dinner.
The event is free but you must RSVP here:
For questions contact Sayon Syrasoeuth at email@example.com or Dr. Suely Saro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are serious about changing the direction of your overall life, you have to reprogram your mind from the way you were brought up.
I’m not blaming the parents because to do so would mean I blame myself.
Life is ever changing and evolving and we as human beings have the power to shift the direction of our journey and it all starts with changing the way we think.
We must be present in the now, we must be present in our family, we must be present in our careers, we must be present in our community and we must be present in our world 🌎 Just existing does not serve anyone! BE PRESENT!
Our mind is more powerful than we believe it is😁
Please take time out of your busy schedules to practice self care, self love is so important and if you want a happy family and a healthy atmosphere...YOU MUST MANIFEST IT AND CREATE IT🙏🏽

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of the Kimberly Maddox Youth Dream Center cannot come soon enough. With child suicides and gang and gun related violence in the news lately, one can only wonder what the motivation behind all of this could be, but California Families in Focus is taking things a step further by opening up an all inclusive and safe space for youth and their families to gather and attend empowerment, leadership and entrepreneur classes, workshops and community mobilization meetings.
This past fall a few of the California Families in Focus Associate members suffered personal family losses to suicide resulting from bullying and gang violence, suicides of children as young as 9 years old to a promising 18 year old dental hygienist and a young male caught up in gang violence. “I can’t stress enough that it is imperative that we as a community ban together and provide the necessary resources to our community so that we can educate and work together with parents, teachers, public and private organizations and school personnel and administration to protect our children and show them
