DELIVERING STANDOUT SERVICE ... Project Safety Net deserves a round of applause for its recognition as the Nonprofit of the Year in the 13th Senate District. The Palo Alto-based organization was formed over a decade ago as a youth mental health coalition in response to a cluster of student deaths by suicide. State Sen. Josh Becker, who represents the district that includes Palo Alto, praised the organization for its work on improving youth well-being in a June 8 statement. "Project Safety Net's collaboration with our community organizations, schools and local government has created a strong network of support and services to prevent teen suicides and nurture the mental health and wellness of young people," Becker said. In 2020, Project Safety Net became an independent nonprofit, according to Becker's office. It is among 109 nonprofits that were celebrated this year at the state Capitol. "We are elated and grateful to receive this distinction as a start-up nonprofit committed to serve north Santa Clara and south San Mateo counties," the Rev. Eileen Altman and Mary Gloner, Project Safety net's board chair and CEO, respectively, said in a thank you letter to Becker.

It would be wonderful to see this documentary. Would it be possible to show it somewhere in Palo Alto? Maybe Tara could be there to say a few words? Perhaps Stanford could host an event to celebrate Tara. Many of us don't have access to ESPN -- how can we see it?
