Thanks, State of CaliforniaWell, we just lost one of our biggest State contracts. Not just us. Everybody did. Domestic Violence funding in the State of California just got the plug pulled.
Wish us all luck, everybody. This is going to be really bad, no matter how it shakes out.
Anybody feel like donating to a worthy cause, our website is here and all of us who do this work... may not be soon. I will give details if or as I know them.
Even if you can only spare a little, believe me, it helps. We are the only secular domestic violence and homeless shelter in our area, the only rape crisis center, and one of only a few food pantries.
Folks, if you can give to Tri-valley Haven, that would be great. I encourage it. If you'd rather give to someplace more local to you that will also be hurt by this, I encourage that, too.
If you can't donate money, donate a little time or journal space, please?
