Reviews for Sheriff's Community Impact Program

Rating: 5 stars  

My boys really enjoyed participating in the SCIP. They learned a lot from the activities. It challenged them, helped them to build confidence and encouraged them to make better choices. Deputy Saigeon is a positive role model. He is very supportive not only to the kids but also to the parents. As a single mom I really did appreciate his support and words of encouragement. :) I am thankful to everyone working with SCIP. Your hard work and dedication has made a positive difference in our life and the community.

This unit represents it's name to the fullest. In a world and community that needs positivity, this unit represents positive growth. This unit deserves to grow for the sake of peace, especially with helping to raise youth becoming productive adults.

When it comes to creating community wide change the Sheriff's Community Impact Program leaves no stone unturned. Whether it's creating safe play environments for kids, supporting sports or dance activities or developing community connections that strengthen the fabric of the community, SCIP is a pillar. the relationship that law enforcement has in any area can support health and wellbeing and that's what SCIP brings to the Arden-Arcade community

I've watched this program grow from a humble start to a program with a huge positive impact on our community's youth. They reach out across ages, sexes and cultures to help our youth learn how to be productive, fulfilled young adults. I'm very grateful for Michael Saigeon and other's vision and total, complete dedication. Their energy, commitment and passion are boundless.

I write about my community for a local publication. That is how I got to know Michael Saigeon and the Sheriff's Community Impact Program.Their mission is to foster productive citizens by engaging youth in dynamic community programs

There are a lot of folks out there with good intentions and big hearts who want to help our youth. But they don't always have the wisdom, intelligence and organization needed to sustain an effort like this. Michael and his crew do. They not only built this program, they did all the right things necessary for highly successful engagement with our youth . The variety of ways they reach young men and women and offer them alternatives is incredibly impressive. Those of us in the Arden Arcade Community who support this program know that our contributions of time and money will be used wisely and for the most benefit possible.

One only has to look at the faces of the youth attending the wide range of character-building yet engaging activiites to know they are changing lives. I know it hasn't been an easy job to build this nonprofit. Michael and the Sheriff's Department started it when the ecoomy was pretty bad. But I really appreciate his vision, passion, and commitment to changing lives. I plan to donate to their fundraiser today. It's one nonprofit I know will use every cent to help where it is needed most, our youth.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

I cannot speak more highly about this valuable program and the positive impact SHOCK has had on the participants, family and community members that have daily interaction with the participants of the program. I witnessed first-hand the transformation in the participants from week to week and it was unbelievable to see. The participants gained confidence, self respect, respect for others, communication skills, ways to express their emotions in positive manner and how to deal with tough situations at school and in their home. I am honored to be part of such an amazing, impactful program.

I have been a pastor in the Arden Arcade area for 22 years and have seen the rise and fall of gang activity in our community over those years. SCIP has been an invaluable asset in reaching young people, steering them away from the ever-increasing gang influence in Sacramento and toward a healthier set of choices in lifestyle. The caring and personal attention of all the SCIP staff is exemplary

I have been a Mental Health Therapist in the city of Citrus Heights for the past 5 years and SCIP has been a wonderful resource for the youth and families in the Sacramento area. I have been able to witness positive changes that this program has made for the youth involved and opportunities and experiences that the same youth would not have access to otherwise. The SCIP team has done a great job engaging youth in the community and providing a sense of hope through the different programs and activities.

For the past couple of years I have been struggling by myself to guide my now 15 year old grandson through high school. Despite all my efforts, he made poor choices that resulted in truancy at school and suspensions from school due to using marijuana.
I reached out to SCIP and my grandson and I were expeditiously interviewed by Deputy Mike Saigeon for the SHOCK Program. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for this program! I have every confidence Deputy Mike Saigeon and his team will be the turning point in my grandson’s life for the better!
It is a true blessing to finally have much needed support! Even with his busy schedule, Deputy Mike Saigeon is readily available for any questions or issues I may have with my grandson.
I will continue to support this program in any way that I can because I know it will make an impact on our youth as they discover the possibilities available to them through SCIP.
Thank you so much!!!

Very Grateful Grandmother,

LHeiney
