PRC supports the economic security of Pacifica families and individuals by providing a safety net of groceries, housing assistance, and other critical services, including coaching, advocacy, information, and referral. As part of this work, our Back to School Program helps our families use their limited incomes to stay housed and feed their families, instead of sacrificing groceries and rent money to prepare their children for school. And, when children have food and shelter and can go to school with the supplies they need, they have the tools to succeed academically.
Thank you again for your support in helping our community's youth go to school prepared and ready to succeed through our Back to School program this year. All contributions to PRC are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law; our tax ID is 81-1496989.
