Wilk honors High Desert Homeless Services with his Non-Profit Appreciation Award High Desert Homeless Servcies
Victorville - Senator Scott Wilk, representing the 21st Senate District, honored High Desert Homeless Services (HDHS) with his Non-Profit Appreciation Award. Wilk presented HDHS' Executive Director, Jimmy Waldron with the award at a community celebration.

"Homelessness is one of California's largest challenges. High Desert Homeless Services has been front and center for over 30 years in Victor Valley's efforts to help displaced families get back on their feet," said Wilk. "It is a pleasure to honor the organization, its dedicated employees and volunteers for their excellent work on behalf of those that are struggling in our community."

HDHS started providing needed services out of thrift store in 1988. It has grown to a facility that provides a safe place to sleep at night, food, and clothing including 24-hour residential services to a maximum of 55 people at one time, for up to 90 days.

The organization invests in the whole person - providing classes, workshops and resources to help people transition back into employment and permanent housing. The stats underscore its success: 85-90% of clients find jobs and 60-70% obtain stable housing upon exiting the program. Recently HDHS started a program focused on the needs of children in its care. It continues to look at the ever-changing face of homelessness in the area and seek solutions to the problems people without shelter often face.

Lancaster, CA – The Lancaster JetHawks today praised the newly created Save Minor League Baseball Task Force that has been organized by members of Congress to prevent Major League Baseball (MLB) from eliminating 42 minor league franchises, nearly one quarter of all minor league teams around the country.

“We appreciate the support of Rep. Lori Trahan (D.-Massachusetts), David McKinley (R-W.Va.) and the members of the task force in standing up for Minor League Baseball and speaking out against MLB’s effort to cast off thousands of jobs, reduce affordable, family-friendly entertainment and undermine grassroots support for our great game,” said JetHawks General Manager Tom Backemeyer

The Lancaster JetHawks have been identified as one of the 42 franchises facing elimination under the MLB proposal.

Minor league teams are vital to the social and economic lives of millions of Americans; they support scores of local businesses and jobs, provide accessible entertainment, help promote tourism spending and donate tens of millions of dollars in charitable contributions.
