Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern CA - March 2015
Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting programs that improve the lives of children and their families. As part of its mission to support children and their families, Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California facilitates a grant program for local children’s charities. These programs make it possible to lift children and their families within the local community to a better tomorrow.
Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) has been a recipient of Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California’s grant program since 2012. Thanks to their generous funding, SFBFS is able to provide families in the Sacramento community support on their journey to self-sufficiency. Most recently, SFBFS received a $10,000 grant from Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California for SFBFS’ Youth Education program.
Youth Education is a year-round program that serves children ages 1-18. Through SFBFS’ Youth Education program, youth are provided with educational assistance, enrichment activities and cutting-edge technology training at no cost. SFBFS’ Youth Education program provides a creative and safe learning environment where children receive homework assistance and tutoring, college and career development, community service opportunities, exposure to technology, character building and field trips. Youth Education is offered at SFBFS’ Oak Park facility, as well as at the Saca Community Learning Center located in North Sacramento serving neighborhoods with families experiencing some of the highest rates of poverty, unemployment, child abuse and neglect, malnourishment and overall hardship in the Sacramento area.
One component to Youth Education is the Computer Clubhouse. The Computer Clubhouse is an international community of 100 Computer Clubhouses located in 20 countries, providing youth with life-changing opportunities. The Computer Clubhouse mission is to provide a creative and safe out-of-school learning environment where young people from underserved communities work with adult mentors to explore their own ideas, develop new skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology.
SFBFS’ work would not be possible without support from the community. As an organization, our staff, volunteers and clients are grateful and fortunate to receive the support of so many community-minded organizations, like Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California. Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California’s generosity is an example of how together we can support families on their journey to self-sufficiency.
