A Hundred Years of Outreach in Sacramento
In 1911, when Volunteers of America opened its
Sacramento doors, the staff and volunteers focused
on giving food, clothing and spiritual support to the
poor and homeless people of our community.

A century later, our mission is the same, but our
programs have evolved with the times. We provide
emergency shelter, transitional and affordable
housing, substance-abuse treatment, and job
training. We teach classes in independent living
and parenting skills. And we’ve expanded our
service area to include Northern Nevada.

We are now one of the area’s largest providers of
human services. And it’s all thanks to your efforts
and support. We’re fortunate enough to have:

• More than 300 professional staff members
• More than 400 volunteers
• A dedicated board of directors
• Many compassionate benefactors                                                                                Maud Booth, co-founder of Volunteers of America

                                                 national, faith-based nonprofit organization. Its mission is to “reach and uplift” all people.

                                                 Our founders set out to go wherever they were needed and do whatever came to hand.
                                                 We’re doing the same today. Across the nation, in more than 130 cities, we’re working to

A Family in
Transition Finds
a Place to Heal
Suddenly single after a bitter divorce and child
custody battle, Crystal and her young son and
daughter had nowhere to go. Crystal’s self-esteem
was shattered, and they all needed a place to heal
and gather strength for the road ahead.

At Volunteers of America’s Family Shelter in Reno,
Crystal found a safe haven and the tools to build a
better future. “The staff became like a family to us,”
she says. “They showed me how to get back up from
the bottom.”

When they first arrived, Crystal remembers, she
and her children had nothing. “But now,” she says
proudly, “we have stability.” After only three months
in the Family Shelter, they have moved into their own
apartment. And Crystal is interviewing for a new job.

Crystal is eager to be the best possible mother to
her children, and she credits the staff at the Family
Shelter for helping her believe in herself again.
Someday, she hopes to work in the shelter herself,
because, she declares, “I love you guys like family.”

                                                           Her Life Around
                                                           Nikki grew up in a family that was haunted by addiction. She
                                                           suffered from feelings of worthlessness, and before long
                                                           she turned to drugs herself. At 12, she ran away and lived
                                                           on the streets, using drugs to try to escape her pain. Early
                                                           motherhood followed.

                                                           “As I brought my daughter Kayla into the world,” Nikki

                                                           mother. So the cycle of addiction continued. Seven years later
                                                           came another daughter, Alex, born with drugs in her system.

                                                           needed. After serving time in jail and completing recovery,

 where vulnerable seniors can find a temporary
 home as well as support and services to heal
 from traumatic living situations such as self-
 neglect and/or elder abuse.

 The six-bedroom home, nestled in a quiet
 residential area, made Maureen feel safe and
 relaxed. As the weeks went by, the former
 Hewlett-Packard executive made new friends
 and found the strength and will to go on. When
 she was ready, the staff at the senior safe house
 helped her find an affordable apartment.

 For the rest of her life, Maureen spoke out in
 support of the senior safe house. The care and
 compassion she experienced there gave her
 respite when she needed it most.
