Since 2012, I have served on the board of directors for the Orange County Family Justice Center Foundation, a nonprofit founded by the Anaheim Police Department in 2004 that provides a welcoming and safe place where victims of family violence can receive assistance from trained professionals, including referrals to shelters, legal services, counseling, and support groups.
Every year, I look forward to spearheading the “Adopt-a-Family” holiday program for families who have been served by the center throughout the year. To support programs like this, the Foundation hosts several fundraisers on behalf of the Justice Center. Last month, we hosted the Runway of Strength Gala, where celebrities, local government officials, and Anaheim police personnel including the current and former Anaheim Police Chiefs participated, making the charity fashion show a huge success.
The Justice Center has positively impacted the lives of hundreds, if not thousands of families, its staff, as well as numerous volunteers and supporters. I am very gratified that the Disneyland Resort is a major supporter of the Foundation and the Justice Center. Please stop by the Justice Center if you are interested in learning more about its services and in helping to support its work!
