Growing Strong

For more than 5 years The Leaven has been improving the lives of children, families and communities right here in California; and we’ve got  two brand new centers to help two more communities!

322324_10151983070600181_1645384614_oWe are going back to our roots and opening a new center in Fairfield – our first since 2011! This new center is located at Parkway Gardens. Our other brand new center is in a brand new town! This center is located at Summit Place in Ontario — our second Southern California center.

Each center we open is a true community effort. We chose our new locations because concerned neighbors asked us to help them make their communities better. . . Because friends and supporters helped introduce us to the community and raise the funds we need to open our doors . . . and because churches stepped up to help make our vision possible.

Once a new center opens, the community remains just as involved. Supporters like you help fund each of our programs, and dedicated volunteers donate their time each week to help kids learn to read, write and succeed in school.

With two new centers opening, we are in need of volunteers to help at both of these new centers. If you would like to join our fantastic team of volunteers, who are truly the heart and soul of our organization, go to to sign up!

Our award-winning Leaven program would not be successful without partners like you. We are excited to share God’s love with 2 new communities, and we are so thankful for your support as we continue to help kids and communities rise.
