SACRAMENTO – Earlier today, Senator Connie M. Leyva (D-Chino) recognized T.O.U.C.H. (Touched Ones United Creating Hope) Ministries as the 2018 20th State Senate District “Nonprofit of the Year”.

Based in Ontario, T.O.U.C.H. Ministries is an outreach based ministry that serves over 6,000 homeless and needy families monthly throughout the Inland Empire. The ministry delivers food, clothing and spiritual guidance to individuals, focusing on short term intervention oriented programs that lead to long term solutions for persons receiving assistance. Led by Founder / President Connie Anaya, the ministry has grown rapidly as Ms. Anaya’s love, hard work and commitment to caring for people without permanent housing has directly helped thousands of people.

Notably, T.O.U.C.H. Ministries provides hot meals and backpacks with food, clothes, hygiene items and other important items to homeless persons. The ministry also focuses on providing services to seniors, at-risk youth, recently released inmates and the working poor.

“T.O.U.C.H. Ministries is truly a great organization that serves thousands of people that are in great need in our community,” Senator Leyva said. “The Inland Empire is blessed to have such amazing people like Ms. Connie Anaya and the many volunteers at the ministry for their tremendous dedication and sacrifice to serving the homeless and people needing a hand up. I am grateful that T.O.U.C.H. Ministries is based here in our region and I am confident that they will continue to serve people in need for many years to come. I am proud to recognize T.O.U.C.H. Ministries as the 2018 20th State Senate District ‘Nonprofit of the Year’.”
