Tulare County Parks & Recreation Lily Pond

For more than five decades the Lily Pond was a popular water feature in Mooney Grove Park. Due to the increasing cost of repair and maintenance over time, the Lily Pond is been non-functional for the past 15 years. To avoid demolition and to honor the history of the Lily Pond, the County is seeking donations from the community to help repair and restore the Lily Pond.

Step Up

Your donations to the Step Up program will be used for collateral items (i.e., T-shirts, backpacks, etc.), venue rental, event food, printing, speakers' fees, awards, materials, and other items associated with Step Up—a movement to encourage youth to participate in extracurricular activities, foster positive associations, and connect to constructive social networks.

Tulare County Homeless Fund

Donations to the Homeless Fund will help supply toiletries, clothing, identification card/application fees, furnishings, or cooking utensils/appliances, or may fund expenses like a utility bill or car repair for those experiencing, at risk for, or exiting homelessness.

Suicide Prevention Task Force (SPTF)

SPTF envisions a county without suicide and aims to accomplish this by implementing a full range of strategies, starting from prevention and early intervention. Your donations to the SPTF will help increase prevention and early intervention services, and help our community members better understand and recognize the signs and symptoms of suicide risk.

K/T AAA - Kings/Tulare Area Agency on Aging

The Kings/Tulare Area Agency on Aging helps provide programs and activities for local senior citizens, from arts and crafts to Medicare counseling, line dancing to home-delivered meals. Your donations to the Area Agency on Aging will help us continue to provide a wide range of services and activities to encourage older Americans to remain healthy, active, and involved in the community.

Human Services - At-Risk Youth

The funds donated to the Human Services At-Risk Youth fund benefit youth who are participating in an employment program and working to make the transition to adulthood and self-sufficiency. This program helps youth in need of emergency monies for necessities such as transportation, work apparel, utilities, medical, dental, and prescription expenses.

COVID-19 Listos California Grant: Wear a Mask Tulare County

 

While determining the best means for getting a message out to the public can be challenging, finding ways to share the message so that it has an intrinsic connection is exciting. The great need for distribution of COVID-19-related information has presented the opportunity to find creative and innovative ways to share positive messaging. It can be fun, it can be serious, or it can be more professional-oriented in its delivery.

Check out the Tulare County Health & Human Service Agency Community Outreach Team's newest Vimeo video called Wear a Mask Tulare County, featuring five different languages (English, Spanish, Armenian, Hindi, and Tagalog).

With the team taking on the Friends of Tulare County California Listos Grant, HHSA has been fortunate to get commercials running on KMPH FOX 26/KFRE CW 59 since May, in collaboration with Self-Help Enterprises and State CalOES.

The videos below illustrate a corporate, or professional, look. This kind of production would be shown on messaging boards and in corporate meeting rooms. 

We would like to extend a special thank you to the HHSA employees who have graciously been a part of this major grant project. Through their testimonials, acting skills, and voice-overs, including a multicultural outreach in languages, we have been able to make that essential emotional connection.

Check out the video productions below, and take a look at others that have made it to the small screen.
