22. Bridget's Dream


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 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.

Together, we form an extremely strong community that seeks to support one another, and the campers we serve, during and outside of camp. During our camp campers participate in a range of activities including arts and crafts, swimming, hiking, athletics, drama, and various nighttime activities. Each night before bedtime the campers participate in cabin chats, an activity where they can share their stories and express their emotions with peers in similar family situations. We have also extended our age group to include teens 17-18 in our new Counselor-in-Training program to encourage them to seek out positive leadership experiences as they head towards college and beyond.

The first Camp Kesem project was founded at Stanford University in 2000 as a project of Hillel at Stanford, a nonprofit serving Jewish students at the University. The project was developed by a group of student leaders who sought to create a magical summer camp experience for children in need. After assessing the needs of the community, the students found that children who have/had a parent with cancer comprised an under-served population who could benefit from a summer camp experience with peers who faced similar challenges.

Microfinance is a powerful self-help support tool that allows the very poor to reduce the day-to-day uncertainties of cash management. Whether it is saving money or gaining access to credit, vital needs can be met and opportunities pursued.

But financial services alone are not enough to help the very poor climb out of poverty. Freedom from Hunger has developed and promoted "value-added" or "integrated" microfinance programs that pair financial services with education and health protection.

Our education programs engage women at their microfinance group meetings to promote better health, nutrition, business and money management. Using dialogue, story, song, demonstrations and pictures, women with little or no schooling learn practical skills to build futures of health, hope and dignity.

145. Yolo County Office of Education


Address: 1280 Santa Anita Court
City: Woodland State: CA Zip: 95776

Phone: 5306686700
Hours: M - F, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Descriptions: Yolo County Office of Education was established in 1850, Yolo County became one of the original twenty-seven counties in California. In 1852, the role of the County Superintendent was initially defined by the state legislature as an add-on function to the office of County Assessor. From 1852 to 1878, the chief fiscal officer in Yolo County was officially titled "Assessor and Superintendent of Schools."

In recent decades, the responsibilities of the County Superintendent have continued to grow. In 1992 a state law designed to help ensure the financial solvency of schools required county offices to monitor district finances and added new responsibilities to the County Office's Business Services departments. In 2013, California enacted a new school funding formula model, known as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), and an accountability program called Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). These new enactments expanded the local monitoring responsibilities of all 58 county offices of education.

Today, the Yolo County Office of Education operates under the direction of Garth Lewis who became Yolo County Superintendent of Schools on January 7, 2019.

Address: 1107 Kennedy Place, Suite 5
City: Davis State: CA Zip: 95616

Phone: 5307586680
Hours: 24 hours / 7 days a week

Descriptions: The Yolo Crisis Nursery has been created to protect the youngest, most vulnerable children from abuse and neglect- and to help their parents or other caregivers during stressful times. This is a safe and healthy place where Yolo County parents may voluntarily place their children in times of turmoil - since instances of child abuse or neglect significantly increase when caregivers experience high levels of stress without resources, support or relief. The no cost services are for families with young children (5 years and under). The Nursery is a 24-hour care, child friendly home in Davis. While at the Nursery, children receive nutritious meals as well as medical and dental care. They engage in activities appropriate for their stage of development.

We offer opportunities for volunteers to work directly with the children in our care, providing additional support to the Nursery staff. It's wonderful and rewarding to hold the babies, and you never have to change diapers!

There are, however, a few things to know:
You must be at least 18 years old
You must be able to commit to a year of volunteering two hours a week.
You must pass a screening process that includes finger-printing and a TB test.
You must complete 16 hours of training.

To learn more or apply to become a volunteer, please email Executive Director Heather Sleuter at
