Flintridge and the Chapter have co-presented a series of workshops on “Know Your Rights in Police Encounters” that have benefitted more than 100 youth to date. Flintridge was recognized for helping at-risk youth deal safely with police, coordinating reintegration services for formerly incarcerated community members and our overall work serving families and youth in Northwest Pasadena and Altadena.
Also honored was Sister Diane Donoghue of NETWORK, a national social justice lobby of activist Catholic nuns, for outstanding service to low income households, and the Pasadena City Library for the staff’s defense of First Amendment rights.

Flintridge was recommended and supported by a coalition of community groups and, as a result, selected by the City of Pasadena to serve as the community-based “institutional home” for local service providers addressing community violence. In addition to convening providers and developing greater collaboration in closing critical service gaps, particularly for at-risk young adults ages 17 through 25, we work with city agencies to ensure that services and policies are better coordinated to prevent and reduce outbreaks of violence.
…. Flintridge exemplifies all of the Gap Analysis conditions set forth for choosing an existing nonprofit as an Institutional Home: appropriate mission and stability; interactive ties with government and highly impacted communities; management and planning skills; and commitment to collaborative leadership …. Because of its established record of successfully promoting cooperative partnerships within the community, we endorse with much enthusiasm and without reservation the choice of Flintridge ….
