ABOUT UNA VIDA

Una Vida is committed to building community, inspiring change and helping community-members thrive. Together we inspire generosity, mobilize resources and distribute donations to community-members in Petaluma, California and our partner communities in the Dominican Republic.

As a grassroots community organization, we partner with community leaders, public educators and fellow non-profits to identify those in need and connect them to resources that address their unique circumstances.
