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 empower and inspire young women who have been involved in the Juvenile Justice system and/or the underground economy to create positive change in their lives and communities.
As our organization builds its capacity to address multiple issues young women face and to influence policy makers, we remain committed to our direct service programs. We understand that young women cannot get involved and lead larger social justice efforts without having their basic needs met. We have been strategic in the implementation of our new initiatives and enhancing our programming by integrating intensive case management to ensure that young women are able to be at the forefront of these efforts while still being able to work on themselves and receive much needed services. Our request reflects both our growth and our core services that have been the heart of who we are for the last 19 years.
