Community Engagement Initiatives
CommUNITY Pull-Ups/Resource Event
We are passionate about strengthening community relationships and providing access to critical resources for community members. Through our community engagement initiatives, we organize monthly “CommUNITY Pull-Ups” and “Hope Fests” to connect residents in areas affected by violence to local resources.
By providing these resources, we address the root causes of violence, enhancing access to essential services, improving social conditions, and empowering community members with knowledge to reduce the occurrence of violence.
Our monthly "CommUNITY Pull-Up" events in Pomona serve as platforms to bridge the gap between residents and the wealth of local community resources available to them. In collaboration with our diverse community partners, we bring together a comprehensive array of free resources and services.
At these events, attendees can access an extensive range of free resources, including but not limited to haircuts, food security referrals, clothing, career and employment guidance, sanitation supplies, basic toiletries, health care screenings and immunizations, housing referrals, victim services, legal assistance, substance treatment options, and admissions representatives from various colleges and their programs. Our partners encompass nonprofit organizations, grassroots advocacy groups, healthcare providers, government agencies, and local colleges.
We believe that these events should be accessible to all community members, particularly those who are most in need. That is why our community engagement initiatives are open and free of charge. We welcome individuals from all walks of life, fostering an inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and supported. Together, we strive to create a strong and connected community, empowering individuals with resources to thrive!

Pomona Community Action for Peace (Pomona CAP)
In 2023, Project Hope CA partnered with the LA County Department of Public Health, Rising Communities, and a network of Pomona community-based organizations and stakeholders, to establish the Pomona Community Action for Peace (Pomona CAP). The Pomona Community Action for Peace (Pomona CAP) is driven by a shared commitment to addressing the root causes of violence and creating a safer, more equitable city for both victims of violence and those involved in it.
Since our inaugural meeting in February 2023, Pomona CAP has experienced remarkable growth and progress. We have brought together a diverse range of stakeholders, including nonprofits, faith-based organizations, hospitals, and more, all united by their passion for violence prevention and community well-being. By fostering collaboration and communication, we have created a space where service providers can align their resources, network, and work collectively towards a common goal.
The coalition firmly believes in the power of unity and collective impact. Instead of working in isolation, we collaborate closely, breaking down silos and fostering unity. By leveraging our collective expertise and resources, we are able to develop and implement effective violence prevention initiatives that address the underlying causes of violence and contribute to sustainable change in Pomona.
