Ronald Marlette - Executive Director
Ron founded Mission Solano May 1, 1998, in partnership with the Bay Area Rescue Mission, working with a donated office on Buck Street in Vacaville, and intent on turning his unique vision into a life-changing reality for the growing population of homeless and socially disadvantaged. Ron’s goal was to offer not only shelter and a hot meal but also spiritual, psychological, behavioral, emotional, social and vocational opportunities. Mission Solano became it's own 502c(3) in 2002. Under Ron’s leadership, Mission Solano has become one of the County’s leading non-profits for homelessness and has grown to include a campus and staff of over 40 employees and hundreds of dedicated volunteers.
