Friends of Tulare County is proud to present Pathways to Hope, a 20-page bilingual print publication with California News & Review. This English/Spanish-language newspaper was a result of the Listos California Grant, in collaboration with Self-Help Enterprises and the California Office of Emergency Services.
The purpose of this project was to take a look at various services within the county as we face the COVID-19 pandemic and share personal stories, as well as to offer hope, resources, and programs that are available for Tulare County. Targeted topics within the newspaper focused on mental health, suicide, homelessness, substance use, foster care, child abuse, domestic violence, and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES). This community partner-driven activity included Family Services of Tulare County, DA's Office Victim Witness, Tulare County Task Force on Homelessness, Kings/Tulare Homeless Alliance, Tulare County Suicide Task Force, Tulare County HHSA, Kings/Tulare Area Agency on Aging, TCOE, and Visalia Unified School District.
