United Nations of Consciousness Recognized at Non-Profit of the Year Award Ceremony

SAN BERNARDINO, CA- Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes hosted a Non-Profit of the Year Award Ceremony on Thursday, October 26th in Rialto, CA to honor and celebrate the Non-Profit of the Year nominees from her district. The ceremony was held at the Rialto Community Resource Center in the City of Rialto, which operates as a co-working space for community based organizations in the Inland Empire.

In total, 19 Non-Profits were nominated from throughout the community for the Non-Profit of the Year award, which recognizes local non-profits for accomplishments in their respective service sectors and for their dedication to improving the lives of others in the 47th Assembly District. Nominees came from a variety of different service organizations ranging from veteran services, mental health advocacy and environmental justice.

“Our community would not be the same without the hard work and dedication of our non-profit sector,” said Assemblymember Reyes. “Our non-profits in San Bernardino County only receive approximately $3 per capita compared to the statewide average of $119 per capita. We must do more to support our community based organizations, so they can provide the essential services our population needs.”


Among the awardees was United Nations of Consciousness who was recognized earlier this year as the Non-Profit of the Year for the 47thAssembly District. United Nations of Consciousness operates at the Anne Shirrells Park Community Center in San Bernardino, providing afterschool programs, advocacy for youth of color and male mentoring services to name a few.
