    On April 28th, we hosted our first summit on “Understanding Homelessness and the Path Out.” It was an engaging, informative conversation with 4 individuals who know first hand what it is like to be homeless.

  • VOA Virtual Experience: Senior Safe House

    Most of us want to believe that the seniors in our community are well-loved and taken care of. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. In the last year, Sacramento County had over 2,000 calls of elder abuse, and it is believed that the actual number of cases was much higher due to the pandemic. Some seniors, like 72-year-old Keiko, are left without anything to stabilize them. Thankfully, our Senior Safe House provides the respite, love, and care that our seniors deserve.
