Sacramento Area nonprofit changes its name to better reflect its mission to assist offenders
ELK GROVE, CA — GAATES, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation based in Elk Grove, California, has changed it’s name. The nonprofit organization was formed in 2014 to provide reentry services to offenders who are released from jail and prison in the Sacramento region. The organization’s official name is now Success Reentry, Inc.
The name of the corporation was changed in July when the organization filed an amendment to its articles of incorporation on July 23rd. The nonprofit organization has already begun updating its branding on its website and social media accounts.
“Our new name better reflects what we do, which is provide reentry services and give people the tools they need to be successful in life,” said Mark Arsenault, the organization’s Executive Director.
The organization’s original name reflected its beginnings, Mark said, with each letter representing the last name of one of the founding directors. An unfortunate series of events led to all but two of the original directors resigning and the organization becoming inactive for a while. But things are turning around, Mark says.
“Success Reentry, Inc. is back,” Mark told us excitedly, “and we have a new Board of Directors that is focused on revitalizing the organization to bring reentry services in the Sacramento region.”
