Redlands, CA- Family Assistance Program is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2019 California Nonprofit of the Year by Assemblymemeber James Ramos.
Darryl Evey, Executive Director of Family Assistance Program, will travel to Sacramento next week to join with one hundred other nonprofit leaders to be honored by their state senators and assemblymembers during a celebration luncheon, as part of California Nonprofits Day on June 5th.
Family Assistance Program empowers all individuals and families, regardless of age or gender by providing knowledge and skills to live a healthy, safe and fulfilled life. Through our youth shelter program, Our House, we are committed to assisting homeless and runaway youths with a myriad of services designed to safely and appropriately reunify youth with family and/or guardian.
“Staff and volunteers at Our House transform the lives of young people every day, and we are deeply humbled to be recognized by Assemblymember James Ramos as a Nonprofit of the Year,” comments Devin Baze, Shelter Manger.
“Nonprofits are often hidden in plain sight,” explains Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). “California Nonprofits Day is an opportunity for our elected officials to celebrate the good work they see nonprofits doing in their districts, and for everyone to appreciate the collective impact of nonprofits in our communities.”
California Nonprofits Day, now in its fourth year, was formally recognized by Assembly Concurrent Resolution 62, authored by the chair of the Assembly Select Committee on the Nonprofit Sector, Assemblywoman Monique Limón (Santa Barbara), who will speak at the celebration luncheon. Senator Holly Mitchell will keynote the luncheon. The day is organized by Assemblymember Limón and CalNonprofits.
According to “Causes Count,” a 2016 report commissioned by CalNonprofits, the nonprofit sector is the 4th largest industry in the state, employing nearly one million people. Each year, California nonprofits generate over $200 billion in revenue and bring in $40 billion in revenue from outside of California. The unpaid labor contributed by volunteers at nonprofits is equivalent to 450,000 full-time jobs every year.
