Trinity Center was presented with a $15,000 grant by the Rotary Club of Walnut Creek Sunrise on November 19, 2019, at Trinity Center’s monthly board meeting.  Trinity Center’s day program has experienced a significant increase in demand for services that continues to grow.  The daily average number of people served jumped from 50 to 70 people.  Trinity Center is preparing to operate the 4th year of their Evening Winter Program, which operates during the vulnerable winter weather months of December through March and provides emergency overnight shelter for up to 50 people in space rented from The Armory in Walnut Creek.  Rotary’s grant will be used to help support Trinity Center’s programs, including, but not limited to, breakfast, lunch, showers, clothing & food, Evening Program and Safe Parking program.   Trinity Center also provides its members with a comprehensive Member Advocacy program in which members create an Action Wellness Plan that focuses on their unique needs.

“Rotary is proud to support the efforts of Trinity Center, for the great work done on behalf of the homeless,” says Richard Callaway, president of the Sunrise Rotary Community Foundation.

“We are so grateful to have the support of Rotary Club of Walnut Creek Sunrise,” says Donna Colombo, Executive Director of Trinity Center. “We are able to make our programs as successful as they are because of partnerships like these. Thank you!”
