Welcome to San Manuel Cares

The Call of Yawa’ – to act upon one’s beliefs – inspires us to give back to the areas we call home and support organizations working to create a better tomorrow in the Inland Empire and Indian Country. We look to provide a hand up through Yawa’ in our charitable and philanthropic endeavors year-round.
