Sacramento Crisis Nursery

The Sacramento Crisis Nursery focus on young children, ages 0-5, because they are believed to be the greatest at risk for abuse and neglect. Parents coming to the nurseries are mostly single mothers who have few or no skills to cope with crises and stressful situations in their lives. These women are often victims of violence and abuse. Many are impacted by alcohol and drug abuse, severe mental health problems, poverty, homelessness and isolation.

Christie's Bridge to Kids

Christie's Bridge to Kids was created to give back to the community of Seattle, our home town, in 1992. It started with a bowling day, followed by a free basketball camp for many of the community's kids. "Our goal is bigger than sports. We share life stories for encouragement. The kids are asked to earn their own way by picking up garbage around their neighborhoods" says Jackie. "My ultimate vision is a "bridge to kids" that is strong enough for them to cross in our troubled waters of today". (no link available)

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility anywhere. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

We are where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do more science, more quickly. Where doctors across the world send their toughest cases and most vulnerable patients. Where no one pays for treatment beyond what is covered by insurance, and those without insurance are never asked to pay. We've built America's 3rd-largest health-care charity, with a model that keeps the costs down and the funds flowing, so the science never stops.

St. Johns Christian School

Our mission is to provide an academic, Christ-centered education in which each child's body, mind, and spirit are nurtured.
