Fighting Back Partnership is a non-profit collaboration that partners with businesses, residents to strengthen families, and support youth development in order to create a safe, healthy, and thriving community.

Fighting Back Partnership provides different services to the community. These include: assistance with housing, food, child care, transportation, and health referrals.

Through their Family Resource Centers, hundreds of families and individuals retained their homes, acquired long-term support for food and other essentials, and some have even moved from crisis to stability.

Under-resourced families often have few reserves to respond to financial emergencies, but with the support of their Family Resource Centers (FRC), families stay in their homes during a period of hardship while working with case managers to build long-term plans for increased stability and advancement.

Fighting Back Partnership’s Neighborhood Revitalization Program is an investment in the quality of life of some of Vallejo’s most underserved and under-resourced communities. Property crime, drug dealing, gang activity, prostitution, squatting, vandalism, and illegal dumping rob a neighborhood of vitality. Residents don’t feel safe or good about where they live, and criminal elements take advantage of the neglect.

Fighting Back Partnership’s Positive Youth Development Program, operates in all three Vallejo City Unified School District (VCUSD) high schools to provide to youth prevention education curricula on Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs (ATOD) use and Child Abuse Prevention Education.

The programs aim to equip students with information and tools to help them navigate the challenges they face in their everyday interactions and to give them the confidence and wherewithal to make informed and healthy decisions.

During the crisis caused by the pandemic, Fighting Back Partnership is still offering services at their site location. Learn more information about them through their website https://fight-back.org
