Dear Caring Community Member, 

Thanks for visiting our webpage to join us in the quest to do Whatever It Takes to Build Great Futures. It is our vision to end poverty in Sonoma and Marin Counties. It is a privilege to work beside you to make our community the most prosperous and healthy place to live. At over 40 locations, we serve more than 10,000 of the community’s most deserving youth and you make that possible.

With a staff team of nearly 300 and a budget of over $10 million, we have powerful resources pushing us forward to realizing our mission of enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as caring, productive, responsible citizens.

Over 150 unique programs have been developed to ensure kids will grow up to achieve Academic Success, choose Healthy Lifestyles, and develop Good Character.  In addition to these academic and enrichment services, we serve over 500,000 meals ensuring the most basic needs of the youth of our community are met.

We invite you to join us in bringing Hope and Opportunity to the children of Sonoma County. With your support, we will grow even more impactful.

With thanks, 

Jennifer Weiss
