HELP! - Mission Solano Food Supply is Dangerously Low

Our commitment is to provide food and care for the homeless and hungry on Solano County.  At this moment Mission Solano NEEDS your help to accomplish this goal.  During the summer months we hit the "Summer Slump"  as much of our funding and donations tend to get fewer and further in between.  However, those that we serve do not stop needing our services.  Our hard working volunteers and staff continue to serve and care for the most vulnerable in our county in spite of the "slump".

This summer is particularly challenging and we are asking our great supporters to consider helping supply $50 in canned goods this July.  When your family goes shopping this month would you prayerfully consider purchasing a little more and bringing a bag of canned goods to the Mission Solano Community Outreach Center (740 Travis Blvd)?  

Maybe you can provide a bit more.   Would you consider donating funds at MissionSolano.org?

Or is this the year you, your church, your business or even you family decides to supply a meal for the nearly 60 hungry homeless that fill our building every night?  Contact Nick Fisher at nick@missionsolano.org for more information on hosting a meal at our Community Outreach Center. 

Thank You

Slow and Steady—and Generous—Wins the Race


In his talk with Darren Hardy, marketing expert Seth Godin offers these words of wisdom for finding success in today's marketplace: Be generous and grow slowly.

Generosity encourages trust in a business, "and if you figure out how to be trusted by a group of people, then you have done something really difficult," Godin says.

He also says to ignore the illusion of overnight success, adding that companies that seemed to immediately rise to the top actually took another route to get there.

SHINE Reggie Sironen



Reggie lived his life trying to find any way possible to numb the pain of growing up in an abusive childhood. Drugs and alcohol led him to give up his wife and child, ultimately ending up serving three prison terms. He now says, "Mission SOLANO has helped me in ways I could not have done on my own. I have been given the opportunity to be the man that I always knew I was."

NFL Player Gets First-Hand Look at Mission Solano’s Work

FAIRFIELD — Edward Campbell was apologetic when James-Michael Johnson stepped into Campbell’s bedroom at the Mission Solano Bridge to Life Center.

“Don’t mind the (Pittsburgh) Steelers stuff,” Campbell said. “I’m a Steelers fan.”

Johnson, a 2007 Rodriguez High School graduate and linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, graciously accepted Campbell’s confession.

“I’m really a football fan,” Campbell went on to explain.

“I am, too,” Johnson assured him.

Johnson autographed the T-shirt Campbell was wearing. But Campbell wasn’t changing his NFL loyalty. A Steelers fan he would remain, he said.

Ron Marlette, executive director of Mission Solano, and Raymond Courtemanche, operations director, escorted Johnson and his father around the facility Monday morning. Marlette and the younger Johnson would pair up later in a golf tournament benefitting Mission Solano.

Last Thanksgiving,  a fair amount of poultry was pilfered from Mission Solano. When the younger Johnson heard about the missing birds, he took to Twitter with a pledge to help replace them.

His Twitter followers followed suit and donations began pouring in from across the country, Marlette said. The purloined poultry was replaced.

“We got double the number of turkeys,” Marlette said.

Johnson said he couldn’t let the opportunity to help pass by. Thanksgiving is his favorite holiday and he knew he would be gathered, with plenty of food and family, in Kansas City to celebrate the day.

He was pleased so many people stepped forward to help, Johnson said. The impact of his Tweet didn’t hit home until he saw it on the news in Kansas City, he added.

On Monday, Johnson got to see firsthand the work Mission Solano does. He was impressed and particularly touched by staff member Linda Wells, who willingly shared her story.

“I was an addict for 30 years,” Wells told Johnson. “I was in prison for 12 years. When I got out, the first night I slept in a car because I didn’t have anyplace to go.”

Someone told her about Mission Solano. That was three years ago.

Wells has reunited with her family and should be off parole in the next month.

“She went through a lot,” Johnson said. “It’s good to see her come back from 12 years in prison.”

Johnson got the biggest welcome in the veteran’s building, where he was asked for autographs and shook hands.

Marlette could barely finish Johnson’s name when the men began to crowd around Johnson and pose for pictures with him.

“These guys were waiting for him,” Marlette said. “When I dropped his name, everything kind of dropped after that.”

He met a 2-month-old baby in the women and children’s building. Johnson also got to visit a family unit and the kitchen.

Johnson offered praise for the work being done at Mission Solano.

“It’s a good foundation here for people to turn their lives around,” he said.

“We’ve worked hard to get it where it’s at,” Courtemanche told him.

A young boy staying at the center followed Johnson most of the tour. The two threw a few passes to each other, using the football Johnson had autographed.

The professional football player ended his Mission Solano visit by autographing almost 20 color photos for the youths who use the organizations services.

SHINE Sue Lamb



Not everyone who shows up at Mission SOLANO has been perpetually homeless or addicted. Sometimes, life just hands people circumstances they never expected.

Sue found her life devastated when her husband divorced her after 31 years of marriage. She tried to hold on, live in her own place and make a start of it again. But after awhile, she had spent all her savings and lost the home she was trying to make for herself.
