Our Featured Video- California Nonprofit of the Year

We are incredibly proud to share that we received the honor as the 2018 California Non-Profit of the Year by the Office of the Governor and California Volunteers.  We were selected among 265,678 registered nonprofits in California for our long-term commitment to the local community and the ability to leverage volunteers.

This honor belongs to all of you. Thank you to our volunteers, sponsors, and businesses who generously give their time, seek out the good in others, & make our community a better place to live, work, and play.

We are so proud to partner with you.
