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.

Our mission is to increase achievement levels in low income, at-risk youth and adults by improving their economic status and encouraging contribution to the regional economy. We accomplish this by providing personal and career mentoring, GED preparation, and logistical supports that help launch individuals into a career and/or post-secondary education. Our vision is to provide the highest quality programs and leadership opportunities to strengthen self-advocacy, instill self-worth, and engender a lifelong value of learning. This way, we believe we can introduce productive and responsible members to society at large.
The disconnected youth and adults we serve would otherwise spend much of their adult lives in poverty, unemployed or marginally employed. Our organization focuses on reducing the economic disparities and targets "disconnected" youth and adults by providing JOB PREPAREDNESS/READINESS, PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, VOCATIONAL SKILLS TRAINING and JOB COACHING free for youth and adults that live in Sacramento and surrounding areas and are at/high risk, low income and are chronically unemployed and/or receiving public assistance to ensure they are successfully employed. Ultimate success is self-sufficiency.
