Tahoe League for Charity hosts Community House staff
Special to the Sun
On Feb. 8, the Tahoe League for Charity held its monthly luncheon meeting at Jake’s on the Lake in Tahoe City.
The three featured speakers, Brenda Martinez, Anne Rarick and Bojana Vujeva, were from Community House, a shared nonprofit space in Kings Beach.
Community House is home to several nonprofits and government agencies, including Project MANA, the local hunger relief agency; the North Tahoe Family Resource Center; Tahoe SAFE Alliance, the local domestic violence prevention agency; and Placer County Health and Human Services.
These agencies work to connect people to resources that are needed to meet the basic needs of individuals, families, and the community.
Martinez spoke for Tahoe SAFE Alliance. She is an advocate working with community members who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault or child abuse. Tahoe SAFE Alliance assists community members who need peer support, legal counseling and/or therapy services.
Rarick is the Outreach Coordinator for Project MANA, “Making Adequate Nutrition Accessible.” Project MANA provides weekly food distributions at four sites throughout the region as well as food to home bound residents. They have been serving 200 people per week for 25 years.
Vujeva is the Service Integration Manager at Community House where she coordinates services among the Community House agencies as well as working for the North Tahoe Family Resource Center.
The NTFRC provides case management services that include medical referrals, financial coaching, government benefits and parenting classes. The agency served over 2,000 local households in 2015.
These agencies collaborate to offer integrated resources in an effort to provide a wide array of comprehensive services to meet local needs. Community House is located at 265 Bear St. in Kings Beach. Please call 530-546-0952 for more information.
The next TLC meeting will be held on March 14 at Jake’s on the Lake in Tahoe City from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. For reservations, contact Nina Rogers at email@example.com.
Luncheon is $17. The speaker for the March meeting will be David Antonucci, author and historian, who will speak on the development of the Squaw Valley Olympic Museum.
