Happy Fall Greetings!

Helpers Community would like to share some updates with you.

Helpers Community & Pomeroy Center

Kicking off Fall with the joy of adventure, the Pomeroy Center and Helpers Community group living residents experienced an exciting and memorable experience white water rafting on the American River, South Fork, Coloma, CA.  The event was made possible by Environmental Traveling Companions (ETC), an organization which provides “the opportunity for outdoor adventure, a connection to nature, stewardship of the environment, self confidence building, for individuals with disabilities and under-resourced youth” and was led by Drew, an Assistant Supervisor at Pomeroy Center and a former ETC River Manager.

Group living residents also learned something about California history by visiting Sutter’s Mill in Coloma where gold was discovered in 1848.
