                STANISLAUS COUNTY RESOURCE DIRECTORY



The Stanislaus County Resource Directory was commissioned by the Stanislaus County Board
of Supervisors and compiled by the Center for Public Policy Studies at California State
University, Stanislaus. The Directory represents a commitment by the Board of Supervisors to
support efforts throughout the county to assist people in low and moderate income areas.


The inventory of organizations that follows includes a vast array of resources that are available to
the residents of Stanislaus County. They represent the government agencies and nonprofit
groups that spend countless hours working to improve the lives of the people in this community.
The people working at these places represent some of the best this county has to offer.


The idea of creating a resource inventory began when several people convened to initiate a
county-wide indicators project. After lengthy discussion, it was decided that such projects tend
to focus attention on the deficiencies of an area and often inadequately document the
community’s assets. As community builders have noted, it is difficult to build upon deficiencies.
One must have a sense of a community’s resources to begin the tasks of building and
strengthening. The inventory that follows is a small step in the process of filling that void.


In effect, this inventory begins to record and identify some of the community capital of the area.
By this we mean the resources the people in the county have developed to strengthen the
community and make it a better place to live.


The list contains a total of 107 organizations that provide a wide variety of goods and services.
These goods and services include tutoring of youth, mentoring of youth, food and clothing for
those in need, counseling services, and shelter. It is by no means a complete list of organizations




                                                                                                      1
within the county and it is not the only listing of agencies. The United Way maintains a list that
is quite extensive in terms of its coverage of agencies.


The inventory included here goes beyond some of the other lists by providing very detailed
information about what the various organizations do in the community. It also details many of
the needs of the organizations in the county. A very large number (61%) of the organizations
need volunteers to help carry out their missions. Many of the organizations (49%) report that
they need more funding support to fully meet the needs of the population. In addition, some
organizations (32%) said donations of food, clothing, office equipment, and vehicles would also
be quite useful.


This inventory was compiled using a phone survey. The survey instrument was developed after
a series of focus groups. Once a draft of the survey was completed a number of interviews were
conducted to test out the survey instrument. Following the testing process, representatives of
each of the organizations listed in this database were interviewed over the phone during the
spring or summer of 1999. We thank Angelina Ceja, Christina Alessi, Jennifer Dow and Stacy
Low for their patience and perseverance in completing the surveys. Julie Smulson and Angelina
Ceja provided data entry and data management. (A copy of the survey instrument is included in
appendix A.)


Organizations were interviewed in all parts of the county, but a majority had a presence in
Modesto. Of the 107 agencies interviewed, 76 had some type of presence in Modesto, 15 were
located in Turlock, 4 in both Ceres and Empire, 3 in Oakdale, 2 in Patterson, and 1 each in
Riverbank, Westley, Hughson, and Waterford. (Some agencies had multiple locations.) About
41% of the organizations reported that some form of transportation is available to the site either
through public transportation or transportation provided by the organization.




                                                                                                     2
The organizations are organized in alphabetical order. The first table of contents lists the
organizations in the order in which they appear in the report. The second table of contents lists
the organizations by the goods or services they provide. Some organizations offer a wide range of
services and are listed in more than one category.


We would like to extend a special thanks to the following for assisting in identifying agencies,
nonprofits and additional sources of information: Linda Avedon, Bob Allaire, Kelly Beardon,
Karen Cosner, Claudia Epperson, John Evans, Kathy Halsey, Debbie Miller, Bill Seavy.
