Dear Friends,

We cannot begin this letter or this year without first thanking all of you who have continued to support VTR through your contributions, service, in-kind donations, care and prayers. Your support is essential to those we serve-our children in foster care or those who will be adopted, our families who care for these precious children, the boys at the Ranch, and the young adults who are transitioning out of chronic homelessness into a life of sustainability.

Thank you to all of our Christmas Angels who made this very challenging year, so special for Christmas. Through our Foster Family Agency, the children received their Christmas gifts and breakfast to take home and enjoy. Individuals and groups in our community donated approximately 100 gifts.

One of the houses on the Ranch had an outbreak of COVID-19 in December. I cannot thank all the VTR staff enough for responding to the extra burdens placed on them to meet the needs of all those struggling. They also contained the virus, which is a testimony to the VTR protection procedures we have in place. However, because of this, none of our boys could go home and visit their families for Christmas. Again, individuals and community group donations to the Ranch, allowed the boys to receive wonderful Christmas gifts, a new Christmas tree, decorations and stockings for Christmas morning.

Happy New Year to all of you!

We look forward to 2021 in anticipation and hope.

Andrea Evans, CEO

This Christmas we received a call from Tania Sanchez at Calwa Barbershop. One of their customers was Octavio Rivera who used to work for VTR. Octavio would talk about VTR and how great it was to work here. He would share stories about what we provided for our boys at the Ranch. Because of this, they chose us and had a fundraiser for us in December. Thank you Calwa Barbershop for their Street Supurb Air freshener fundraiser and our new partnership!
Thank you Jr. League of Fresno!
Jr. League of Fresno has been an ongoing partner in providing for our children and teens throughout the years.

Last year the Jr. League funded our garden at the ranch, provided back-packs for Back-to-School, wrote special letters, and for Christmas bought multiple presents for each of the teens at the Ranch. Thank you for your ongoing care!
