About Us

The mission of Rubicon Programs is to transform East Bay communities by equipping people to break the cycle of poverty. Recognized as a national leader in workforce development, Rubicon has placed thousands of East Bay residents into employment, including over 650 in the last year alone. While we are proud of these accomplishments, we are striving to have a deeper impact. While a job is a step in the right direction for those facing multiple barriers, we know an entry level job alone will not move an individual out of poverty. In order to deepen impact on participants' long-term economic futures and leverage their success, in 2016, we committed to a theory of change: people achieve lasting mobility by developing stability in four areas –Income, Assets, Wellness, and Community Connections. For most, the immediate goal is securing employment to stabilize income – and our services continue beyond securing a first job. We then help participants identify and work towards a career path with family-sustaining wages and advancement, develop a safety net by building assets and enrolling in health insurance/public benefits, address legal barriers to mobility, access primary and behavioral healthcare, and strengthen relationships with family and community. This integrated, whole person approach equips people for full economic and civic participation. 

Rubicon has developed an antiracism stance that sets forth how we will combat racism in our communities and develop equity practices within our organization. All of our work is guided by our core values of justice, hope, and humility.
