Ronald Marlette - Executive Director
Ron Marlette, his wife Jennifer and their four children reside in Fairfield, California. Ron is a native of Fairfield and was raised here as a youth. After a long career in the "fish business", as Ron calls it, he answered the calling he had long heard and enrolled at Multnomah Bible College in Portland, Oregon. He exited Multnomah Bible College in the mid-nineties, degree in hand; the new Reverend Ronald Marlette had a vision for his home, Solano County!

In 1998, after creating a partnership with Bay Area Rescue Missions in Richmond, California, Ron began to fulfill the vision of serving the homeless and underserved population of Solano County. It was a solo journey that was partnered with his faith in God, and the journey began in a donated office on Buck Street in Vacaville.
