With so many worthy organizations around the US and especially in the San Francisco Bay Area, why invest in Rubicon? Because we make a difference for people who have not been able to succeed anywhere else.
"I am 25 and the life I was living was crazy - I was either going to end up with a life sentence or in the grave. Now that I found Rubicon, I see there is an opportunity."
Rubicon helps people facing some of life’s biggest challenges: recovery from mental illness, incarceration, poverty, violence, the struggle to become financially self-sufficient.
Last year, despite a difficult economy, we placed nearly 500 unemployed people in jobs.
At Rubicon, we do whatever it takes to help hardworking people get back on their feet. We give our clients the tools they need: training, one-to-one coaching, bus passes, interview clothes, housing, connections to local employers who will hire them.
Our work helps break the inter-generational cycle of violence and poverty: more than 1,400 children are positively impacted by our work with their parents.
Rubicon was founded in 1973 – this year we celebrate our 40th anniversary. Headquartered in Richmond, CA, and with sites throughout the San Francisco East Bay, Rubicon is dedicated to partnering with those most impacted by poverty.
Why donate to Rubicon? Every dollar you donate multiplies in impact – in the hardest hit communities in the Bay Area. Every dollar invested in Rubicon triples the potential earning power of the clients receiving our services.
