Founded in 2010 as a grassroots organization promoting campus safety

Community Now has become an important partner with Riverside County School Districts in promoting mental wellness among 3rd - 8th graders.

As a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, Community Now is one of the few mental well-being promotional programs in the Inland Empire that focuses specifically on elementary and middle school students. The mission of Community Now is to use evidence-based principles to teach all people life skills that they need to become socially and emotionally strong. Preparing them to cope with the stressors of school, work, family and the community. 

We help answer these important questions that children ask:

  • How do I learn when I’m so lonely?
  • How can I focus on school when I have so many problems at home?
  • How can I stop bullying when I see you bully people every day?
  • How can I change if no one is there to show me how?
  • Why should I trust that my teachers care about me when they only care about my grades?
  • How am I supposed to think about the future when I feel so hopeless?
