Quarterly Charities

The KeKokua Charity Committee meets four times a year to decide on new charities to donate to. Members present charities they are strongly passionate about and then vote on the recipient. The charities nominated represent an issue that committee members have personal ties to, have family members that have been helped through these efforts, or just a mission that they feel strongly about. The Foundation invites the selected charity to Destination Wealth Management for a presentation about their organization and how they help serve the community. After the presentation, the KeKokua Foundation surprises the charity with a check donation.

Q1: Covenant House of California

 

Covenant House California (CHC) is a non-profit youth homeless shelter that provides sanctuary and support for homeless and trafficked youth, ages 18-24. We believe that no young person deserves to be homeless; that every young person in California deserves shelter, food, clothing, education … and most importantly, to be loved. Now serving over 2,300 youth a year, CHC has served over 190,000 homeless youth since we’ve opened our doors. CHC provides a full continuum of services to meet the physical, emotional, educational, vocational, and spiritual well-being of young people, in order to provide them with the best chance for success in independence.

Q2: Bay Area Crisis Nursery

The Bay Area Crisis Nursery was established to help prevent child abuse and child neglect by providing supportive services to families who are in stress or crisis. Our primary service is providing a warm, loving, homelike environment for children from birth through eleven years of age by offering 24-hour residential care. Our services are free, confidential and voluntary.
