Mission Statement

Fighting Back Partnership is a nonprofit organization "committed to preventing and ending poverty and its effects" in Vallejo and throughout Solano County. 

Programs

Family Resource Centers (FRC) Are conveniently located in Vallejo neighborhoods to serve families with children 0-18. Each FRC site has its own unique culture and focus, but each offers comprehensive case management services that have three objectives:

  1. To meet basic needs like rental assistance and access to food.
  2. To increase financial success through sound money management practices.
  3. To support family success through parent education

Youth Partnership (YP) is a dynamic collection of young people who understand that their voices and perspectives matter in building communities that are healthy, safe, and supportive of their unique needs.  This youth-led, adult-guided, school-based program equips high school youth with skills and tools to investigate community issues that matter to them and design projects or campaigns to address those issues. Youth learn about collaboration, communication, leadership, and community problem-solving. These young people are working toward a society that just, fair, inclusive, tolerant, and reflective of their values.  Participation can also earn community service hours and help to augment their resumes and college applications with meaningful experiences.
