The pleas for help from the Fullerton-based Womens Transitional Living Center – which houses battered women and children as well as victims of human trafficking – have apparently fallen on active ears, with the countyâ€™s employee union and State Senator Lou Correa, D-Santa Ana, stepping up to host a fundraiser on Monday for the group.
Also, Supervisor Bill Campbell just told me that the Orange Community Foundation today stepped up with a $120,000 grant to help the group.
I wrote about the group yesterday when they approached the Board of Supervisors asking for some sort of help because the Sacramento budget mess had shorted them more than $300,000 and the group was struggling to survive.
