Recently, the Alliance for Community Transformations received a $33,950 donation from PG&E that is aimed specifically at business owners. The Community Foundation in partnership with the Alliance for Community Transformations will be distributing these funds to business owners in the next few weeks. There is a simple request form that can be filled out by the individual business owner, or their fire case manager. We are hoping to provide some funding to everyone who applies, and priority will be given to businesses that were licensed and had a high value loss.

Use this form to apply. (Link)

If you were a business owner who lost tools or other materials in the Oak Fire, please either speak with your case manager about applying for these funds, or go directly to fill out the form yourself. Anyone who lost business items can apply for the funding, even if they do not have a fire case manager.

The Alliance is happy to support our community by accepting donations for those impacted by the Oak Fire as well as the Agua Fire. Monetary distribution to support individuals/families will be determined by the Unmet Needs Committee made up of many community members including members from Health and Human Services, Mariposa Community Foundation, Rotary, Sierra Tel, Faith based Organizations, and more.

The Alliance for Community Transformations will be here to support those impacted by the Oak Fire into the future. We will continue to support immediate needs through gift cards while the supplies are available. Call 209.742.6456 if you are in need of this resource.

Mariposa Heritage House will provide emergency food boxes once a week, on Tuesday or Thursday. Please call 209.966.7770 to set up a food box and arrange for pick up at 5200 Hwy 49N.

The Alliance will be assigning Fire Case Managers to people that experienced a loss. This program will be up and running by Mid-August. The Case Managers will reach out to you, or you can call 209.742.6456 if you have any questions about this program.

Alliance for community transformations

The Alliance for Community Transformations provides responsive and preventative services to individuals and families, and works through partnerships and collective action to create truly safe, healthy and socially just communities where every member thrives.

About us

The Alliance for Community Transformations provides responsive and preventative services to individuals and families, and works through partnerships and collective action to create truly safe, healthy and socially just communities where every member thrives. Based in Mariposa and Merced Counties, there are six programs that help us achieve our mission: Mountain Crisis Services, Valley Crisis Center, Ethos Youth Center, Mariposa Heritage House, CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocates) of Mariposa, and Connections emergency shelter.

The Alliance was founded in 1990 under the name of Mountain Crisis Services, an agency working with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Mariposa County. As the agency grew and expanded to include different programs, we decided that a new name would better fit the work of our programs and our vision for our communities. Below you can find more information about each of our programs, our Board of Directors, and Donations.
