There’s a beacon of light shining bright in California’s Coachella Valley, and it’s known as the Galilee Center thanks in part to the County of Riverside, countless private donors, and USDA Rural Development’s Community Facilities program. Led by Gloria Gomez and Claudia Castorena, Galilee Center works to improve the lives of farmworkers and other low income families living throughout the eastern Coachella Valley. They not only provide an average of 300 food baskets a week, but also offer a thrift store, a community room with computers that also serves as a cooling center during the hot summer days, a comfort center that provides showers and low-cost laundry facilities, and other services.
