Public Defender staff pose in front of donations for the YouthHope Foundation September 6, 2022.

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.”
