The destiny of a child living in the Bay Area should not be determined by her zip code.

The truth is, just a few city blocks can separate kids who experience the benefits of affluence and those who confront crowded classrooms, neighborhood violence, and family instability.

At Lincoln, we’re passionate about walking alongside children and families as they unlock the doors of possibility and rewrite the story of growing up in poverty and trauma. Thanks to your support last year, we impacted the lives of more than 4,000 kids and families, further strengthening our pipeline to successful adulthood and self-sufficiency.

Your continued support today will propel:

School Attendance and Learning
Ninety-six percent of youth in Lincoln’s school-based programs improved attendance –a core element of learning and success. Because of you, Lincoln will continue to raise the bar for kids, getting them to school, reading by third grade, and following a strong path to graduation. 

Family Stability and Strength
Ninety-nine percent of families in Lincoln’s kinship program remain stable and together. Thanks to you, Lincoln will continue to provide families with the support they need for their children to thrive, succeed, and grow.

Life Success and Self-Sufficiency
Ninety percent of Lincoln youth transitioning from probation back to their families sustained no new offenses or violations. Because of your support, Lincoln continues to make new beginnings possible, giving youth the chance to lead more productive lives. 

We couldn’t do this vital work without you. Many believe as you do that Lincoln is the best investment you can ever make in our community. We invite you again to join our movement empowering the next generation to beat the odds, build strong futures, and expand what’s possible.
