People of Progress

POP! A nonprofit 501c3 serving Shasta County since 1973 Our mission is to strengthen individuals, families and our community with particular emphasis on issues affecting low income persons. People of Progress is unique to Shasta County and can make timely decisions to respond to emerging needs. Annually, our food bank and resource center serves 14,000 people with food for 230,000 meals, 5,000 clothing items, 500 blankets, countless diapers and 8,000 targeted referrals. Most importantly, we help clients form a game plan and connect them to other services. Our hub of resources acts as an integrated service delivery site directly connecting clients to medical providers and other services such as VITA, SNAP, CalWORKS, employment centers, etc. Our targeted printed resource materials are used by many other agencies to help their own clients. Through our comprehensive in print, on the phone and online community information services, we help people we will never meet, in ways we will never know. Our thrift store and private donations provide the majority of funding for our programs. Because of food donations, it only costs us 7 cents per meal to provide food.
