Making A Difference

Safe Passage Family Resource Center is a small non-profit community agency.  We work hard to ensure that parents and caregivers of children in our communities have access to resources and information. 

 

Safe Passage FRC was founded in an effort to improve the quality of life for families in our community, particularly the overburdened families.  We do our absolute best to provide support and services to our local families.  On this beautiful rural coast, there is growing need.  Last year, we assisted over 400 local families with housing assistance and connections to vital resources in the community.

 

Safe Passage FRC serves as the hub for family-based services in our coastal communities.  Sadly, as the need grows in our community, our funding streams have decreased.  As more families come to us in need of services, we have had to cut back programs that are vital to empowering and strengthening our community.  In some instances, we have had to eliminate important programs such as:

 

  • Our Get Set for Kindergarten class - for children who’ve never been to preschool

  • Tutors to assist homeless and inadequately housed students who’ve fallen behind in school because of frequent absences

  • Tutors to work with second grade English language learners who are struggling academically

  • A support group for fathers

Since opening our doors in 1996, we have achieved overwhelming success at empowering families to be become self-sufficient, nurturing and active in their community.

As our local families rely on us for support and services, we rely on our community for the help and support that enables us to continue providing services that empower the families who will strengthen our community.

Together

We believe it takes a community to raise a child, and everyone has a role to play.

How Less Is Always More

One Simple Dollar Will Make A Difference

Sponsorship

 

 

 

Sponsor a Fundraiser/Community Event

 

  We hold events throughout the year to

  raise awareness for children, youth and

  families in crisis. 

Sponsor a group/class or a playgroup

 

​  Due to funding cuts, we have had to                  eliminate programs/groups that are vital to      family strengthening. 

  Your sponsorship of a playgroup or class will    not only benefit the families involved, but          our community as well.

  Consider sponsoring one of the important        groups that we had to eliminate....

Contribute to our

Rental Assistance Fund

 

Rents are high, and increasing...

wages are not!

 

Did you know that over 59% of renters in Mendocino County spend more than 30% of their income on housing?

 

Over 1/3 of our local residents are renters.

Many of our local families live in substandard and/or unsafe housing.

Your donation to our rental assistance fund helps us bring hope to struggling families.

For some, it assists with finding safe housing for their children. 

 

For others, it can be a much needed support during a tragic loss of income.

By preventing a family from eviction, you give parents a bit of breathing room as they work to stabilize their living situation.
