Adult Refugee Bicycle Donations
The Sacramento Sheriff’s Toy Project is pleased to be able to help an AMAZING group of people and organization with adult bikes as a means of transportation for their Refugee clients. We’re happy to help such a great cause & have enjoyed meeting with Mrs. Adriana Russell, who is the Special Projects Coordinator of the Adult Refugee Program. As you can see, Anna was very happy to receive a bike. 😊
Please see information below from the Folsom Cordova Adult School about their grant program.
The Sacramento Employment and Training Agency (SETA) Refugee Program offers Employment Services to refugees, asylees, federally certified victims of human trafficking, and Special Immigrant Visa holders (SIVs) that reside in Sacramento County. SETA contracts with Refugee Service Providers located strategically throughout Sacramento County. There are two Refugee Service Providers in Rancho Cordova. One is located at Folsom Cordova Adult School, which is part of Folsom Cordova Unified School District. A second Refugee Service Provider is located at Folsom Cordova Community Partnership/America's Job Center, co-located on the adult school campus. Refugee service providers provide job coaching and mentoring to assist in building client's pre-employment skills and English language skills to attain economic self-sufficiency.

Folsom Cordova Adult School is incredibly grateful to have the support of Officer Harp, Deputy McGee, Deputy Jacoby, and their team at Sheriff's Toy Project in providing bicycles for our clients. This allows them to get to their job and adult school classes which in most cases is a long walk from home.
