In 2016, Fighting Back Partnership contracted with the Solano County Department of Health & Social Services to assist 69 CalWORKS
families to access and maintain permanent housing so that the gains of the CalWORKS Program are not lost to homelessness. This is an exciting opportunity to develop a new
paradigm for moving homeless families off the streets and into homes in Solano County. Read how Fighting Back Partnership supported Gina Arrostuto's family on a new path

Homelessness in Vallejo, as in the rest of the country, is a tragedy. The inhumanity and indignity of homelessness are unacceptable, and we cannot ignore it.
At Fighting Back, preventing more families and individuals from experiencing that tragedy is extremely important, as is finding homes for those who need them.
Fighting Back Partnership is invested in ending homelessness in Vallejo by curtailing evictions and keeping families and individuals in their homes. Through our Family
Resource Centers (FRC), hundreds of families and individuals have retained their homes, acquired long-term support for food and other essentials, and have
moved from crisis to stability. Under-resourced families often have few reserves to respond to financial emergencies, but with the support of our FRCs, families stay in their homes during a
period of hardship while working with our case management staff to build long-term plans for increased stability and advancement.
Fighting Back Partnership operates four (4) FRCs throughout Vallejo and each offers:
Limited financial assistance to address delinquent rent, utility payments, and emergency food
Case management support that includes linkages and referrals to support services and benefits assistance
