They graduated from a two-year job training program that also provides transitional housing at the former Mather Air Force Base.

35-year-old Timothy Lammi is one of the graduates of the Mather Community Campus. The father of four says the program helped save his life.    

"To be honest with you, I had a tough time imagining my 33rd birthday that’s how desperate things were. Basically there was nowhere else I could go and live for 2 years with my kids and get an education and survive." 

Lammi now lives in Rancho Cordova and has a job as an IT professional. The Mather Community Campus operates in collaboration with the Sacramento County’s Department of Human Assistance and other organizations.

In the past 12-years, the program has served 2,000 adults and kids.
