Since 1973, Rubicon has provided job training and placement, housing, behavioral health, and other supportive services to low-income people in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.  They equip and empower their participants to develop the economic mobility to move out of poverty. No one service can address the many challenges people living in poverty face — success comes from participation and achievement in four areas: Assets, Income, Wellness, and Connections.
