Program History:

Imagine growing up across the street from a park that is too dangerous to play in...or sharing a three-bedroom apartment
with nine people...or not having books, school supplies, or a quiet place to do homework.

These are the harsh realities for the more than 550 youth living across the street from
Ninos Park in Natomas. The needs of this low-income neighborhood are obvious: generations of poverty,
addiction, oppression, and crime have left families feeling hopeless and forgotten.

Drawn to serve this community, some volunteers from a local church began going to
Ninos Park on the weekends to play games and build relationships with kids and their parents. After hearing their
stories and seeing their potential, these volunteers began to dream about a place that could represent health, hope, and
renewal for this community.

This dream became reality in July 2002 when The GreenHouse was born. The GreenHouse is a Christian Community Enrichment
Center that was formed to help unlock the inherent resources of this neighborhood and transform it from one that is
merely surviving into one that is thriving. By providing families with opportunities for education, artistic expression,
fitness, and spiritual growth, The GreenHouse is nurturing the seeds of renewal in this community.
