CALSO's mission is to strengthen communities by empowering individuals to reach their full potential.
We envision an inclusive society where all people have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our holistic approach to eradicating poverty enables us to tackle all types of obstacle – linked to education, employment, health, housing, etc – through comprehensive support services to guarantee a lasting impact on our beneficiaries.
CALSO is also 100% committed to social innovation. We are catalyzing innovative approaches to address old, stubborn challenges in California and beyond. We believe social challenges have to drive our initiatives, not the other way around. For this reason, we have constantly been working on adapting our services to new or unaddressed social needs. Our innovative solutions are designed to give everyone a second chance.
