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.

Sadly, we lost our 22 year old son Matt, who was senselessly murdered in September of 2008. We miss him and cherish the amazing memories we have from his life. My family established The Matt Garcia Foundation to “Keep the Dream Alive” in his memory. I believe that my life’s experiences will help me assist others to reach their personal objectives. Our family has our home in Fairfield, CA, and is members of Parkway Community Church. I look forward to the opportunity to face the challenges in front of me. My personal objective is to align myself with leaders that really believe they have the capacity to offer change to the world that we live in."

Cindy Bradford BTLC Program Manager
I like to refer to my past as being very colorful. I have been a mother, a wife, a sister, an aunt, an employee, and a business owner. I have personally struggled with low income living, homelessness, and addictions. It was through God that I turned my own life around in 2006 and made a new beginning with my daughters Taylor and Cierra, and my son Chase. I became a member and an active participant of both Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. In January 2007 I began attending classes at Solano Community College and ultimately earned my Associates degree in Human Services. During that same time I began working in the college library part-time while also working part-time at Mission Solano Community Outreach Center as a Shelter Attendant. As I grew in God my blessings grew, allowing me to complete my California Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADAC) certification, and receive my Bachelor of Science in Human Services from the University of Phoenix in 2012. I continue to grow in the spirit everyday, knowing I have achieved everything through God's grace, and I now understand the power of his redemption.
