FAITH FOOD FRIDAY’S
Faith Food Fridays’ mission is to provide individuals and families who are struggling financially with free food, groceries and other necessities. Our goal is to provide encouragement to those community members in need with physical sustenance plus other free services so that they will become healthy and productive contributors to the city of Vallejo, and beyond.
The Genesis House, Inc is a non-profit organization founded in May 1972. The initial formation of the organization was based on the idea of providing a re-entry program for other residential treatment program graduates. By 1974 it became apparent that treatment services were needed, and the program obtained state certification to provide long term treatment. This continues to be the program’s primary purpose today. We provide ling-term residential treatment to men and women who require complete lifestyle and environment change. Fees are based on client’s ability to pay.
LOMA VISTA FARMS
Loma Vista Farms is a 5-acre outdoor classroom that provides hands-on educational activities involving plants and animals for children of all ages and abilities. We seek to increase students’ knowledge of nature and nutrition while enhancing academic learning, Eco literacy and psychosocial development.
