The Trusted Bridge to Independence

Every day, Puente works side by side with community members to build and increase equity for all who call the South Coast home.


Coastside Gives 

We are excited to announce that Puente will participate in Coastside Gives this spring! This campaign brings together our neighbors and partners to support essential services for children and youth who live in our South Coast communities of Pescadero, La Honda, Loma Mar, and San Gregorio.

Every day, we walk side-by-side with our South Coast neighbors as they cross the bridge toward independence. All funds raised through Coastside Gives this year will support the following initiatives:

-Opportunities for leadership development and civic engagement for youth through paid summer internships, academic resources for youth ages 14-22

-Scholarships for high school graduates, college students, and those pursuing trade and vocational programs

-Provide an affordable, accessible, and high-quality learning program for children ages 18-36 months of age at our Sueños Unidos/United Dreams Childcare Cooperative
