"I have had the opportunity to grow and learn so much during my employment at the Sacramento Children's Home. While working at a Family Resource Center, I have had the opportunity to use my social work degree in real-life field experiences, while enriching the lives of parents and children. It's been quite fulfilling to have the chance to make a difference in a community that I have been connected to since my childhood."

- Denise Belcher, Intervention Specialist, North Sacramento Family Resource Center

"I have worked at the Sacramento Children's Home for close to 25 years. The ongoing training and support that I have received from the Children's Home has helped me become a great parent to my two wonderful children."

- Sherry Fernengel, Kitchen/Commissary Coordinator
