NEXT MEETING: December 6, 2019
Helping people achieve economic mobility
Rubicon’s vision is an East Bay without poverty. Our program model equips participants for long-term economic mobility through guided participation and achievement in four areas: Income, Assets, Wellness, and Community Connections.
In Richmond, most participants are reentering the community following incarceration. The scattered reentry landscape is itself an obstacle for this population, challenging to navigate even for those with ample psychological and practical resources. Rubicon’s whole person model equips people, under one roof, with the tools needed for sustained stability. We look forward to sharing a brief presentation of Rubicon Programs with you, including the perspective of a program participant.
