Tulare County Parks & Recreation Adopt an Arbor

You can support the parks! Adopt-An-Arbor is an innovative way for businesses, community groups, and individuals to provide financial support for the refurbishment and maintenance of Tulare County parks.

K/T AAA - Senior Day in the Park

K/T AAA sponsors the annual “Senior Day in the Park,” featuring games, exhibitor booths, music, food, and live entertainment. Your kind donations help us provide specialty events that give the seniors a real thrill, like live music, our photo booth, a classic car show, and the annual cake walk.

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.

Probation Youth

Donations to the Probation Youth programs, which include the Family Preservation, Team Supervision, and Foster Youth units, provide needed supports for youth on probation who have multiple, complex needs.

Tulare County Emergency Relief Fund

Your donations to the Friends of Tulare County Emergency Relief Fund Program will support emergencies in a wide-scale effort to protect the safety of persons and property in Tulare County. With the COVID-19 pandemic hitting Tulare County in March 2020, COVID-19 and previous local emergencies have taken a toll on County resources.  

Animal Services - Spay/Neuter

For some people, accessing veterinary care or having their animals spayed or neutered and vaccinated can be difficult to afford. Donations to the Animal Services Spay/Neuter Fund help provide reduced-cost spay/neuter vouchers and help bring mobile spay/neuter clinics to small communities with no access to veterinary care.

Adult Protective Services

 

Your donations to the Adult Protective Services program help to purchase emergency food supplies and hygiene products when clients are temporarily in need. Contributions also help in the purchase of promotional outreach items for Elder Abuse Awareness Month activities—an annual event to educate the community on how to recognize and report elder abuse.

The Adult Protective Services (APS) program has the very serious responsibility of helping dependent or elderly (age 65 or over) adults remain safely in their homes by responding to requests for help or reports of negligence or abuse. The most common reason to need help from APS is self-neglect, where someone's safety or well-being is in question due to being unable to take care of basic needs like taking medicines, managing money, keeping the home clean and stocked with nutritious food, doing laundry, or bathing. After investigating the situation, APS can provide counseling, referral to legal services, and connections to other community services and benefits.
