As a mother, educator, and involved community volunteer, there is no other organization like Break the Barriers in the Central Valley and Fresno County who specializes in the diversification, inclusive opportunities, and empowerment of children, youth, and young adults + Veterans.

Break the Barriers is the largest recreational facility in the nation free for veterans.

I serve as a volunteer to Break the Barriers where needed. They are helping the Fresno Community wherever possible. They are giving services, training, and helping hands to 523 Veterans--free of charge. They are helping 30 under-served children three afternoons a week to learn reading and sports of choice--free of charge. So many have experienced their love and effectiveness in these two programs and 25 other programs. Check out this video
