Since 2011 this annual event has drawn representatives from education, health, housing, justice, non-profit, local government, business, and philanthropy. The SOOC Breakfast includes an entertaining and meaningful program that highlights the good work being done in the community together with an inspiring, thought-provoking keynote address.

This year’s breakfast promises to be very special.
First, we will be presenting the completed Preconception - Age 5 Blueprint for Funding and Advocacy to our TCM community. This plan represents the most comprehensive effort ever undertaken to make a meaningful difference in the lives of young children and their families in Fresno County. We are going to celebrate this monumental achievement and set the stage for implementing the work in the months ahead!
