385 Bel Marin Keys Blvd., Suite G, Novato, CA 94949 | (415) 382-8799 | www.projectavary.org

Statistics reveal that 865,000 children in California have a parent in prison, on parole or probation. In these cases, it is not uncommon for these children to be rejected, forgotten, or left without social and community support. Project Avary, in understanding the issues these children face, works to improve the life outcomes for youth who experience such hardships. With help from peers and adults within the community, children of imprisoned persons are given the opportunity to access long-term guidance, develop emotional and social skills, establish friendships, as well as assume leadership roles; they then can help guide and mentor younger children involved in the program. In these ways, Project Avary makes a difference for these children, giving them the resources necessary for leading successful, responsible lives.

As a response to the rising instance of homelessness in the city of Berkeley during 1985, realtors from the company Red Oak devised a system to give back to the community, and help those without homes. After only one year, sizeable donations came into view and the Red Oak Opportunity Fund (R.O.O.F) was created. With an emphasis on not only housing but on the importance of education as well, the committee has since grown into a foundation that makes a difference in its community.
