Stay up to Date with the Home Run
Through the six programs of the West Sacramento Home Run, the City of West Sacramento will be a thriving community that benefits children, families and local businesses by providing access to high-quality early learning for all children, opportunities to develop valuable workplace skills, and financial assistance for post-secondary education and training.
West Sacramento’s young people will “run the bases” of the West Sacramento Home Run and return to “home plate” in West Sacramento to work, start businesses and raise their own families.
