Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Community Based Mentoring matches adults with children in Green county with the expectation that they will meet consistently (weekly or bi-weekly) to create a long term mentoring relationship. School Based Mentoring is different from community based mentoring because this program takes place in a supervised setting at the school and focuses on academic need as well as social need. Elementary school children in grades 1 through 5 are matched to high school students as their mentors. The Lunch Buddy program matches adults willing to meet with a student over their lunch period at their school. They enjoy eating lunch together and sharing some time talking or doing other activities during recess.
