Jennifer Beach Foundation

The Jennifer Beach Foundation was founded in 2001 to help survivors of child abuse and domestic violence. Jennifer Beach attended Redmond High School in 1991 when she died in an auto accident at the age of 17. Jennifer planned to be a lawyer and hoped to be a voice for those in social situations that needed help from someone who cared. As part of her High school English assignment, Jennifer wrote a poem about a situation of child abuse she had witnessed that the law enforcement authorities could not act upon. She was forced to live with the frustration of not being able to help beyond watching and wondering what else might be going on behind closed doors.

The Jennifer Beach Foundation also has a program called "Jeff's Sports Bag" which helps provide kids equipment and other resources to participate in extracurricular activites. Jeff Beach graduated from Auburn Riverside High School in 1996 and went on to be a leader wherever he went. With a passion for softball, Jeff went to a tournament in Long Beach in 2015. Jeff was attacked and killed in a senseless act of unprovoked violence while lending help to a friend. The "Jeff's Sports Bag" program is offered in his name as a tribute to his dedication and compassion for the community.
