B. J. Jordan Child Care Programs, Inc. DBA Beanstalk is a private
non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation. Tax-exempt status enables Beanstalk
to receive gifts, bequests, endowments and public grants furthering our activities.

The agency was originally founded in 1973 as a pilot project under the Foundation of California State University, Sacramento. At that time the name of the agency was Community Child Care Programs, Inc., which became incorporated in 1977. The original purpose of the agency was to provide child care and nutrition programs, in centers and 'satellite' homes, for families who had limited financial resources. In 1996, as a tribute to the founder and respected advocate for children and families, Betty Jane (B.J.) Jordan, the Board of Directors voted to change the corporate name to
B. J. Jordan Child Care Programs, Inc.

As the focus of the agency changed to reflect community needs, our purpose expanded to include providing high quality child care and development and nutrition programs for all families. Tuition assistance and free programs along with the Child Care Food Program are provided under the
B. J. Jordan Child Care Programs, Inc. corporate name. In 2001, continued growth in programs lead to a "doing business as" name that portrayed the "magic" that is now known as Beanstalk. The Name Beanstalk represents B. J. Jordan Child Care Programs, Inc. vision of
Helping Families Grow Healthy Children.

Beanstalk receives income from donations as well as funding from the California Department of Education, US Department of Agriculture and US Department of Human Services. Child care and development and nutrition services are provided in licensed centers and in family child care homes.

Mission Statement
Beanstalk's mission is to provide children and families with enriching child development and nutritional programs in centers and family child care homes that are safe, affordable, research based and culturally sensitive, supported by community partnerships and coordinated services.
