"Working with the Folsom Cordova Community Partnership has really helped me become more mindful. It has helped me improve my parenting skills and to better understand my growing child. I feel like my skills as a parent have become more developed. Thank you FCCP for all the support and knowledge." December 2016
"Woodmack Products, Inc. has worked with the Folsom Cordova Community Partnership for more than 5 years. During this time, we have experiencing a great need for the employment services that FCCP successfully offers in our community, including on-the-job training, job placement, job search assistance, job retention and follow-up services especially for low-income and non-English speaking individuals. Our community has a number of low-income job seekers who struggle to find gainful employment. FCCP staff are experts in the barriers that these job seekers commonly face such as lack of language and job skills, high school or higher education, job search, and interview skills, access to financial education, and connection to the hiring community. FCCP has listened to our needs and even provided candidates with math courses and welding training. WPI has employees that were hired through the FCCP more than 5 years ago that continue to be valued assets to the WPI team. We have always been impressed with the dedication and quality that FCCP staff bring to their work. They supported our company and our employees during hiring and well beyond. FCCP is a true partner to WPI and valuable asset to our community." July 2016

On Saturday, April 21st, the Rancho Cordova campus of San Joaquin Valley College (SJVC) hosted the first Ventilator 5K Race and Health Fair in the region. "The objective of the race is to push a ventilator five kilometers," says Bruce Dearing, SJVC's RTP Assessment Coordinator. "Each team consists of a crew chief and pit crew, which will take turns pushing the ventilator." Race teams decorated their ventilator, to reflect a theme they select, such as Toy Story, the 70's and Star Wars.
This event raised $4,320 for the Folsom Cordova Community Partnership. "Mechanical ventilators literally breathe life back into people who cannot breathe on their own. So we thought, what better "machine" to use in a fundraising event aimed at breathing new life into important projects right here in Rancho Cordova," says Mr. Bruce Dearing. "We felt the Folsom Cordova Community Partnership's mission of enhancing the education, health and well-being of the community went hand-in-hand with our purpose for the college's Ventilator Race fundraiser.
