Everytime a individual was unable to pay rent, unable to pay the deposit on a new place, or unable to pay first month rent, unable to pay the electric or the gas bill or unable to buy food, I referred them to the Community Action Partnership for individuals to get assistance for the following:
1) Housing Assistance -
*Eviction Prevention Assistance
*New Rental Assistance
2) Home Energy Assistance -
*Emergency Utility Bill Assistance
*Non-Emergency Utility Assistance
3) Food Bank - "Every person has access to nutritious food and is free from hunger."
Community Action Partnership was so amazed on how I cared about people; and Community Action Partnership was so infactuated on how I wanted to help people they went out of there way and wrote two phenomenal articles about me.

The San Bernardino Sun Newspaper spoke to the Community Action Partnership regarding my dedicatioin in finding ways to help indivudals with daily life needs. The Community Action Partnership asked me and two other ladies to attend a Rally in Washington D.C. to be a part of the "No Room For Poverty" Rally. We was excited and very happy for the oppotunity to attend this rally. Our dedication paid off because none of us has never been to Washington D. C., nor have we ever been nominated by a big organization to do great things for the community. The Community Action Partnership paid for our airplane flight to Washinton. They paid for our beautiful and luxurious hotel suites for a few days, they fed us lunch, breakfast,and dinner each day, and we was invited to a gala event and was nominated. It was one of the best events we hae ever attended.
