Donate to ReIMAGINE Mack Road Foundation!

OUR BEGINNING

ReIMAGINE Mack Road Foundation (ReIMAGINE) was formed by the Mack Road Partnership (MRP), a South-Sacramento Property and Business Improvement District, in November of 2013. ReIMAGINE was implemented as an intervention strategy, serving as the social-service arm of the Mack Road Partnership, to address long-standing socio-economic challenges in a community that historically has some of the highest crime & poverty rates in the City and County of Sacramento.

OUR STRATEGY & APPROACH

ReIMAGINE provides year-round expanded learning programs after school and other non-school hours to at-risk, underserved, socio-economically disadvantaged, school-age youth living in South Sacramento neighborhoods of Valley-Hi, Mack Road, Center Parkway, and Meadowview. Our programs use a positive youth development framework and prevention-based strategies and approaches to reduce risk factors, increase academic success, improve socio-emotional wellbeing, and create access to high-quality, culturally relevant, youth-focused supports and opportunities through academic support, expanded learning/enrichment activities, supported youth-workforce development opportunities (summer program), and supportive services.
