Nonprofits Honored for Embodying Beliefs, Positively Impacting Community


Creating positive and meaningful change in the community is never easy but through strong partnerships with the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, area and regional nonprofit organizations are making a significant difference in Southern California and across the nation. To recognize the amazing achievements its nonprofit partners have made in the last year, the tribe honored four organizations that embody and demonstrate the time-honored Serrano concept of Yawa’ – to manifest one’s beliefs through action – at the seventh annual Forging Hope Breakfast March 24 in San Bernardino. The Children’s Fund, Mary’s Mercy Center, Crafton Hills Foundation’s Increasing Engagement, Employment & Knowledge (ISEEK) program and Indian Youth of America were the four nonprofits receiving San Manuel’s prestigious Yawa’ Award. “Year after year these organizations continue to amaze us with the incredible actions they take to better all of our communities,” said San Manuel Chairwoman Lynn Valbuena. “They bring to life the call to act for the benefit of others and are a true testament to the life-changing power of Yawa’ that we celebrate today.”
