The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians has donated $200,000 to Olive Crest to support the organization’s Child Abuse Stops Here initiative in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
The tribe has partnered for 21 years with Olive Crest, which works to prevent and treat child abuse, a news release states.
“For many years, Olive Crest has focused on healing and improving the lives of children in our community who have suffered from abuse,” San Manuel Chairman Ken Ramirez said in the release.
The money will help Olive Crest programs and efforts to expand its services, the release states. It also will increase volunteers and allow for placing an additional 260 children in short-term, long-term and permanent homes, the release states.
