Social Justice Fund and the McCune Foundation have just announced awards to the One Step A La Vez Teen Drop in Center and Board in Fillmore/Piru.  Four Fillmore One Step Members received a gift from the Social Justice Fund at their November reception.  The Social Justice Fund gives to groups that are making a difference in their community from the ground up.  This is the second year that the One Step A La Vez Committee has been recognized as being a group that is working for social justice in Fillmore by the Social Justice Foundation. 

The McCune Reception was postponed due to the fires in Montecito.  The McCune Foundation also is looking for groups that want to make a difference in their communities.  Now that the One Step A La Vez Teen Drop in Center has begun, both foundations will give support so that the youth can look for additional ways to improve Fillmore.
