The GreenHouse offers a safe and caring environment for children and teens to go after-school and during the summer. Its mentoring, tutoring, leadership development and spiritual development programs are very well run by committed volunteers and staff. Youth love to be at The GreenHouse. They come back year after year and it's exciting to watch them grow and become all that God intended for them to be.
Entering into the warmth and energy of the energy on Monday afternoons is one of my favorite moments of the week, as the GreenHouse students greet me with unbridled enthusiasm. We sit together and read and try our best at adding fractions, we laugh and we celebrate when the light turns on in our understanding. This place, true to its name, is indeed a sanctuary for growth.
The GreenHouse has a specific purpose in the neighborhood it's in. To impact the families there and partner with them to help them succeed. I have had the privilege to be a small part of what The GreenHouse is doing each and every day. It's a large task that is never ending but the staff and volunteers are dedicated to the neighborhood and the families.
The Greenhouse is a wonderful organization that is committed to the growth and development of kids in inner city Sacramento. The Greenhouse first started as an after school program for elementary age kids and has expanded over the years to include after school programs for junior high and high school kids, leadership programs, and mentoring programs. The people at the Greenhouse truly care for every kid that comes through their doors and are constantly seeking to better meet their needs and the needs of the community. The Greenhouse is not only serving the community, but also seeking to equip the kids to step up and become leaders in their community.
