There’s no organization quite like us. We are a sisterhood of women working to repair the world.  NCJW is where you can find your passions, explore your skills, and use them to make a difference in the community. We advocate, we educate, we serve the Sacramento community. We learn from each other, have fun and form lifelong friendships.

The following are some of the heartfelt personal stories shared by our members, community partners and friends. We hope they will inspire you to join or make a donation as we continue our work on behalf of women, families, children, and the disenfranchised.
