Leisurely and cultural activities in and around El Sobrante include many movie theaters, over 5,000 restaurants and over 100 libraries, all within a 15 mile range of the city.  There are also over 100 public golf courses and several museums within 30 miles of the city. The moderate weather that this area has helps with the many different activities in and around the city. With a temperate climate, the residents of this area are able to enjoy outdoor activities without the overwhelming heat of other California cities. For many families living in a small city, getting to know your neighbors and enjoying barbeques with the residents on your street is a fun way to stay connected.1 This small town feel gives people a sense of security in knowing that if they are in need, there is a sense of community and pulling together to get things done. This town has a musical history including having the leader of the bank Creedence Clearwater Revival as one of the members during the 70’s and 80’s.  Another band leader, Tim Agnello, who founded the group Exodus grew up in the city along with his schoolmates, Kirk Hammett, Les Claypool, and John Kiffmeyer who was a member of Green Day.  All of these musicians attended the local high school De Anza which is still the school for current students.

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in El Sobrante

All marriages need the support of friends and family. When language provides a barrier to building community, it is comforting to be aware of resources that are available. Project Second Chance, the Contra Costa County Library Adult Literacy Program, offers free, confidential, one-on-one basic literacy instruction to people who are over 16 years of age, out of school, and conversant in English.2

Family Services and Assistance Programs

Contra Costa County has a Domestic Violence Unit, which provides support and protection to those who have suffered from domestic violence. This was part of the Zero Tolerance for Domestic Violence Initiative that was started by the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and aims to reduce the number of domestic violence incidences in the county.3 STAND! For Families Free of Violence is another initiative with the same purpose. They can be contacted through their help-line number at 1-888-215-5555.4
