Together, we create Jefferson.

The old Jefferson Elementary School has been transformed by community volunteers of Eureka’s Westside Community Improvement Association (WCIA).   The Jefferson Project has already completed a playground area with new equipment and has opened the building to many organizations for meetings and recreational activities.  The excitement builds as our neighborhood shows its commitment to a clean safe neighborhood full of activities for all ages, from gardening and cooking to dance and drumming, improving oneself an learning new skills.  Join us with your ideas, projects and energy!

This month we are celebrating

English Express of Humboldt County!

English Express, founded and instructed by Mary Ann Hytken, aims to provide access to English for English Language learners throughout Humboldt.

Please consider donating to English Express Humboldt's Sponsor-A-Student campaign!


Sponsor-A-Student is our local Humboldt English Express's campaign to raise money in order to support continued English Express course offerings across Humboldt County. The cost of a semester of English Express is $495 per student, however any donation you can afford to make, big or small, will contribute toward supporting our students' success!
