Our Impact in Local Communities

My name is Melissa Woods and I have been given the opportunity to facilitate the Allstate Financial program for our agency. The Allstate Financial program is going extremely well. Last week I taught six financial classes.  The class that we have for our community on Mondays always has at least five in attendance.  I have noticed that people at first are reluctant to open up about their finances, however after they start to  feel comfortable with me then we can work together as a team.

Extending Tenant Protections for Survivors of Domestic Violence

Amazing news! Partnership priority bill ‪AB 418‬ has passed through the Senate Judiciary Committee with a 7-0 vote and through the Senate 38-0! It now heads to the governor for his signature. Why is this bill so important? AB 418 would strengthen the current law and make it permanent, removing many barriers to early lease termination when a survivor feels unsafe in her/his current environment. The next stop is the Senate Floor!
