Join PINC Fresno on May 28, 2022 from 5:30 to 11:00 p.m. for our 12th annual event, Under the PINC Top. The event will take place at a private residence near Bullard and McCall in Clovis. The night will feature dinner, drinks, a live auction, silent auction, dessert auction, carnival games, and entertainment from the Marie Wilson Band. We look forward to you joining us as we raise funds for the Resiliency Center. Please remember you must be 21 to join us.
The mission of the Fresno Resiliency Center is to disrupt and heal emotional and generational trauma. The Resiliency Center works closely with the Fresno Police Department to take a proactive approach for children impacted by trauma. It is the only agency with access to calls for assistance made to the Fresno Police Department which allows Resiliency Center members to initiate contact with a hurting family within hours of a crisis event. It also does not rely solely on on-site counseling services like traditional counseling agencies nor does it rely on a person experiencing trauma to recognize the need and reach out. The Resiliency Center has been specifically designed to overcome those barriers that prevent children and families in trauma from getting the help they need. The clients served at no cost to the families by the Resiliency Center include victims of domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, sexual offenses, assault, witnesses of violence or abuse, and those experiencing the death or illness of a loved one. Through education, mentorship, and counseling, the Resiliency Center strives to break the cycle of trauma and prevent at-risk behavior such as runaways, gangs, addiction, homelessness, trafficking, and prison.
Over the past 14 years, our group of Central Valley women have joined together to raise more than $850,000 to benefit local non-profit organizations that are dedicated to serving women and children. PINC, which stands for “Philanthropy Inspired by the Needs of our Community,” was founded in 2008 on the principle of helping meet the ever-evolving charitable needs of our community. The 70 service-oriented women of PINC embody the spirit of charity and are committed to giving back to the greater Central Valley community. Since our inaugural event in June 2009, the funds raised by PINC have benefited several non-profit organizations including Angel Babies of Hinds Hospice, Marjaree Mason Center, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central California, Break the Barriers, Catholic Charities, Transitions Children's Services, Holy Cross Center for Women, Feed Our Future, Heart of the Horse Therapy Ranch, Valley Children’s Healthcare Oncology/Social Services Fund, Breaking the Chains, and Family Healing Center.
