Love My Life, Inc. mobile resource center offers services for individuals living in different stages of homelessness. Led by our community ambassadors (Boots On The Ground), which consist of members of the community who use to be homeless, guide us into the dark shadows of known dangerous communities to help people who are truly suffering, but afraid to reach out for assistance. We provide food, clothing and the use of technology to solve social issues, bridging disparities in health and human services.
Our professional team of volunteers provides services to remove barriers helping individuals get into GED programs; provide job assistance, and free Vocational Training bringing them out of isolation, changing lives.
Our mobile unit participate's in Health Fairs, Job Fairs and other Community Projects.
Love My Life, Inc. is offering a free program called Family Matters. We provide you with booklets full of fun, meaningful activities and conversation starters for you to do with your family together. You pick the pace and convenient times to do it. There are no deadlines. And, best of all, the program is proven to increase positive communication between parents and teens and keep your teen safe from alcohol.
Did you know that the latest statistics show that in Sacramento County more teens die from alcohol than all other drugs combined? It’s surprising to many. Alcohol also puts teens at greater risk for problems in school, accidents and many health risks. But the good news is that statistics also show families can help prevent teen alcohol use! Family Matters is one of the best and easier ways to reduce teen alcohol use. It is highly tested and recommended by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Clothing is more than a basic need. Since the economic decline, families have struggled to pay rent, utilities and food; clothing is usually last on the list. In this day and age even in low-income communities, image is important, in order to fit in socially and to build self-esteem. We collect new and gently used clothes for our community Clothes Closet. Our Clothes Closet provides free clothing, shoes, socks, jackets, personal care items and school supplies to students, poor or underserved community members and the homeless.
Project " I SEE YOU" - Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why our year-round food drive is so important. Children experiencing homelessness are invisible in our communities. They suffer out of sight of the general public, policymakers, and even school personnel.
Project "I SEE YOU" provides homeless and underserved students with food and necessities during the weekends, winter, spring and summer break. These children depend on eating breakfast and lunch at school everyday. When school is closed most of them will go without the consistency of having breakfast or lunch and often dinner. We provide each child with one bag of nutritious meals and snacks. Each food bag contains 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches (2 cans or cup of vegetables & fruit, & 2 snacks). Milk (shelf stable) &100% juice. All food is non-perishable and given to children free of charge. This program is funded through generous donations.
We provide application assistance for CalFresh (formally Food Stamps) can be a valuable resource for low-income individuals and families who may receive food from assistance program but who could still use more help with food each month. CalFresh benefits are accessed through a plastic EBT card (like a debit card), which can be used to purchase food at grocery stores and farmers' markets. Since the money can only be used for purchasing food, it is not considered a welfare program.
Our tutoring program is simple. We consult with the teacher, staff and parent to determine the root cause of the student disconnect with a particular subject, for example we do in class observations, review IEP's. Homeless and underserved students need tutoring more then any other population. With tutoring, they have the opportunity to make enormous strides. Even the worst behaved students in a classroom tend to function well in one-on-one or in small groups, since acting out is often a defense design to hide academic weakness. Additionally, our tutoring services provide a consistent, nurturing environment with an educated adult role model. Students affected by poverty often lack stable homes. Our tutoring centers provide a safe learning place. To help with hunger relief, snacks are also provided.
