Dear Caring Community Member, 

It is our vision to end poverty in Sonoma County. It is a privilege to work beside you to make our community the most prosperous and healthy place to live. In our 32 Clubs, we serve over 6,000 of the community’s most deserving youth and you make that possible.

With a staff team of nearly 200 and a budget of over $7 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 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.

In addition to prevention programs for young people, our program in Sonoma County Juvenile Hall allows us to engage the most vulnerable youth as they envision who they will be as adults. Together, anything is possible.

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
