Here is a little information about the charities we chose to donate to this year:

Valley Caregiver Resource Center: Valley Caregiver Resource Center offers a unique, comprehensive umbrella of services designed to help elders and their families master the challenges that accompany the aging process as well as the challenges of caring for adults with brain impairing conditions, such as Alzheimer's disease, stroke, Parkinson's and traumatic brain injury. As long-standing advocates and collaborators in preserving the health and quality of life of others, their aim is to promote personal and community well-being.

Marjaree Mason Center: Marjaree Mason Center supports and empowers adults and their children affected by domestic violence, while striving to prevent and end the cycle of abuse through education and advocacy. Every 9 seconds in the U.S. a woman is assaulted or beaten. Every year, more than 3 million children witness domestic violence in their homes. MMC is the only agency in the Central Valley to provide shelter and support services to victims of domestic violence by breaking the cycle, promoting independence, and empowering the individual.

Breaking the Chains: Breaking the Chains works with local, state, and federal law-enforcement agencies to provide rescue, relocation, restorative, and residential services to female victims of human trafficking. Human trafficking is a lucrative industry, and has been identified as the fastest growing criminal industry in the world today. Human trafficking casts a shadow on the central San Joaquin Valley, with thousands of victims both female and male, young and old, rich and poor, white, black, Hispanic, Asian. It’s an industry that thrives on targeting your children. And despite an organized, coordinated response from a coalition of law enforcement and advocacy groups, it’s getting worse. The BTC campus is a remarkable example of our community’s dedication to help juvenile and adult victims of human trafficking. BTC is equipped with a safe house that provides long term shelter to 6 survivors. This in combination with a trauma informed curriculum and an army of volunteers, has allowed BTC to also offer trauma informed services on a daily basis to more than 27 survivors through their Non-Residential service program. In all they provide direct trauma informed services to 33 survivors and their family’s every day. To learn more about BREAKING THE CHAINS please visit: www.btcfresno.org
