Sacramento Parent believes in giving back to our community. That's why each year we make
a donation from the proceeds of Babies and Bumps to a local non-profit that benefits families.
2018 Benefactor: Saint John's Program for Real Change
Saint John’s Program for Real Change unleashes the potential of mothers in crisis. We operate the largest shelter in Sacramento and the only one to focus exclusively on women and children experiencing homelessness. We serve up to 270 women and children a day, or up to 1,000 annually.
When a family enters our 12-18 month comprehensive program, they receive immediate stabilization services, including housing, meals, mental health therapy, addiction counseling, as well as longer-term services including budgeting courses, high-school diploma attainment, fulltime childcare, and hands-on job training. All services are designed to lift themselves out of poverty and homelessness.
