Since 2009, members of the Public Defender’s Office have continued to make food, clothing, school, and hygiene donations to the Youth Hope Foundation.  Youth Hope is a nonprofit foundation located in Redlands California that helps homeless and at risk youth with food, education, job training, housing, and healthcare service. 

On Tuesday September 6, 2022, a Youth Hope representative accepted Public Defender’s Office donations and tearfully stated, “I can’t believe you guys still care.”
