StrengthUnited Chosen As a 2021 Nonprofit of the Year

June 23, 2021


StrengthUnited is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2021 California Nonprofit of the Year by Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian.

StrengthUnited is one of 113 nonprofits that will be honored by their State Senators and Assemblymembers for their tremendous contributions to the communities they serve.

StrengthUnited provides prevention and intervention services to survivors of all ages who have experienced child maltreatment, domestic violence, and sexual assault. A chartered center of California State University, Northridge (CSUN), Michael D. Eisner College of Education, StrengthUnited has served the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys for over 30 years, supporting the most vulnerable members of our community at critical moments in their lives. StrengthUnited provides 24/7 confidential support and response; serves more than 5,000 children, adults, and families every year; trains 160 CSUN graduate and undergraduate students each year, creating future professionals and agents of change; and provides prevention and education throughout the community to address violence and abuse at the root.

“We help children, adults, and families live abuse-free lives, and we are deeply humbled to be recognized by Assemblymember Nazarian as 2021 Nonprofit of the Year in District 46. The Assemblymember is a great ally and champion for Survivors of abuse and violence,” comments StrengthUnited’s Executive Director Kim Goldberg-Roth, LMFT.

“The pandemic and shelter-in-place orders of the past year and a half have put nonprofits  – usually hidden in plain sight – in the spotlight,” explains Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). “California Nonprofit of the Year is an opportunity for our elected officials to celebrate the good work they see nonprofits doing in their districts, and for everyone to appreciate the collective impact of nonprofits in our communities.”

California Nonprofits Day, now in its sixth year, was formally recognized by 2021 Assembly Concurrent Resolution 80, authored by Assemblymember Luz Rivas, and co-authored by Senator Monique Limón. Each year legislators from across California have chosen a Nonprofit of the Year in their district.
