partners-pageTahoe Magic is successful because of our many partners. Our referral agencies work with, screen, advocate and communicate the needs of families in crisis to Tahoe Magic. Because we work through referrals exclusively, we have the ability to assure our partner agencies that their donations, grants and supporting funds are being used to assist our low income families with the greatest need.

Tahoe Magic is much like the center of a wheel, the spokes being the many referral agencies that are requesting help for their clients, students, patients and families. Our partner agencies and individuals, or the outside tire rim of the wheel, enable us to say yes to requests, thus respecting families, responding to needs with compassion and acting immediately to resolve a crisis.
