Publications: http://changeofpace.com/

Address: 1260 Lake Blvd. #245
City: Davis State: CA Zip: 95616

Phone: 5307572012

Descriptions:

The A Change of Pace Foundation is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization, established in 2007 after many years of conducting events as A Change of Pace Inc (est. 1987). Based in Davis, CA, the Foundations annual efforts include healthy family-oriented events, youth exercise programs (with specific focus on elementary school-age children), kids triathlons and camps, and community education.

The Foundation is administered by a Board of Directors, of whom meet monthly. The Foundation relies on grants, donations, and special event income & sponsorships to fund our programs and events.

We have more than twenty years of experience on the local, regional and national level in the running and multisport field. The Positive Energy Campaign, established in 2006, was designed to encourage positive exercise for kids through fun, fitness-oriented events. This Campaign now includes four high-profile events, including one of the largest kids triathlons in the country, the California Kids Triathlon. With less than 30% of tested K-12 students in California meeting the criteria to be in the Healthy Fitness Zone, we are striving to increase the number of kids we reach with our programs and events. Our events serve as a motivational tool for our after-school exercise programs.

The A Change of Pace Foundation strives to encourage, educate and motivate kids to inspire life-long habits towards a healthy lifestyle.

6. Bridget's Dream

Publications: http://www.bridgetsdream.org/

Address: P.O. Box 162661
City: Sacramento State: CA Zip: 95816

Phone: 9162353690

Descriptions:

Bridget's Dream is a faith-based nonprofit organization built on Biblical principles and dedicated to providing practical services to victims, their families, and youth at-risk of exploitation. We believe in the sound integration of psychological and biblical principles. We recognize that we are in a war and our battle strategy must come from the King of kings. Although Sex Trafficking has, within the last few years, emerged as our Nation's "hot topic", we recognize that the pursuit, rescue, and restoration of prostituted persons is not a new concept. William Booth (founder of the Salvation Army) pioneered this cause in the 1800's. In General William Booth's war cry, known as the "New National Scheme for Deliverance of Unprotected Girls and the Rescue of the Fallen", he established general principles that guided the restoration work for individuals trapped in sexual exploitation.

We believe that there is much to be learned from those that have gone before us. When the dust settles and excitement about this cause dissipates, when our arms grow weary and hearts overwhelmed, the dream will carry on because this is not just Bridget's dream or Leah's dream...it is God's Dream!!!

As a partner of City of Refuge Sacramento, Bridget's Dream is committed to the ongoing development of collaborative partnerships with other organizations. We believe that a spirit of unity will enable our community to meet the multi-faceted needs of those we serve. There is greater strength in numbers and as we are witnessing a move of God that is revealing His passionate devotion to the destitute, we are seeing Him join together the hearts of those who are like-minded.

COALITION OF CONCERNED MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS (CCMP) is an all-volunteer effort, rooted in the community, founded in the Bay Area in 1976. CCMP is independent from government funding or any funding with strings attached. CCMP is structured as a free and voluntary unincorporated private membership association not as a 501(c)(3). CCMPs primary purpose is to overcome political and economic barriers that deny access to comprehensive medical care for any and all working people. This has included conducting campaigns to defeat laws or governmental policies detrimental to the interests of low-income workers.

CCMP takes an approach that incorporates medical care, ancillary health services, procurement of healthy foods for supplemental food distributions and joining with organizations of low-income workers whose members suffer lack of access to quality, affordable care. CCMP may choose to align with community groups to change conditions creating poor health, including environmental concerns.

CCMP urgently needs VOLUNTEERS: doctors, nurses, dentists, medical and dental specialists, physical therapists, dental hygienists, students and all those with a willingness to learn how to organize to fight the conditions which deny comprehensive medical care to workers and their families here in the Bay Area.

CCMP volunteer health care professionals donate preventive care to applicants screened for eligibility by CCMP benefit program volunteers. Many benefit recipients are members of self-help organizations of low-income workers.

The Green Party calls for a complete restructuring of social, cultural, and political life, especially in the developed countries. It seeks to broaden the ideological debate presented by the dominant political parties, who frame their arguments in terms of a linear capitalist system, to include a holistic systems approach to recourse allocation, waste reduction, and democratic principles. The Green Party stands in direct challenge to those who say there is no alternative to our current economic system. We believe if there is to be a future, it will have to be Green.

Descriptions: The Newman Catholic Center in Davis was established in 1965 and is sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Sacramento. The Newman Center is housed on the original site of St. James Catholic Church. St. James Parish is now located at 14th and B streets. John Henry Cardinal Newman was a proponent of liberal education, the role of the laity, and the place of conscience in one's life. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has established chaplainries called Newman Centers, named in his honor, to care for the spiritual needs of those engaged in university life and to serve as a Catholic presence in the university environment.

The Newman Catholic Centers empower college students to form authentic Christian community, celebrate the diverse expressions of their Catholic faith, and discern their vocation as disciples of Jesus for the Church and for the world.
