Your donation can change lives

Your donation can make an immediate and direct impact on the lives of low-income families struggling to provide a safe and secure home and a brighter future for their children.

Your contribution provides funding for Homework Clubs at four Cabrillo properties, and we hope to expand to two more in 2018. These clubs help students by providing tutoring and homework assistance, after-school activities, books and other school supplies.

Sixth-grader Bernardo Gaytan says he likes Cabrillo's Homework Club at Valle Naranjal Apartments in Piru because he receives individual help with his schoolwork from the tutors, and he's receiving good grades. For his mother, Maria Gaytan, the assistance is invaluable because she does not speak English and cannot help her sons herself.

"One of my sons is in special education classes and requires extra assistance with reading out loud. The homework teacher has the patience and technique to help them better their reading and writing skills," she said. "Of the two years they have attended homework club, my son is able to focus on homework and be less distracted than at the beginning. Because I do not speak or understand much English, I will sit next to him as a reminder to focus, but the teacher will help him pronounce the words to make sure he's saying them correctly, "

This is just one of several ongoing programs your donations will support. With your donation and the support of community partners, residents also receive:
  • FOOD Share distributions
  • ESL classes
  • Health screenings
  • Nutrition classes
  • Community gardens
  • Student arts programs
  • Citizenship classes
  • Financial Education and counseling programs

From all of us at Cabrillo, thank you!
