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. This organization not only changes lives, but leaves lasting legacy that empowers our community to promote equity-inclusion-acceptance.
Review from Guidestar
Break the Barriers is the largest recreational facility in the nation free for veterans. BTB’s international outreach working with our government and other governments around the world has reached millions of people spreading awareness and acceptance. BTB provides free buddy up programs for the schools, free inner-city programs for children less fortunate and scholarship hundreds of families for what ever reason can’t afford to pay for their 25+ sports, arts or educational programs.
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
