Foundations of Financial Success
Livermore, CA – April 25, 2014

On April 25th, 2014 CCCF partnered with Tri Valley Housing Opportunity Center (TVHOC) and Abode Services to host a seminar encompassing three main aspects of financial success at Carmen Avenue Apartments. The Carmen Avenue Apartment Complex is a low-income, section 8 housing complex. This presentation was provided free of charge and to people wishing to learn more about the Foundations of Financial Success. Abode Services was founded in Alameda County in 1989 when a small group of people came together to address a growing problem with family homelessness in the Tri-City Area. Abode Services develops and implements innovative programs to end homelessness. Their agency is built on the principles of housing first, a proven approach that has demonstrated results far superior to the traditional approaches to homelessness.

Ishwinder Judge, of CCCF had this to say: “It has been great partnering with TVHOC and Abode Services. Both organizations have missions to providing access to local housing in their areas. Abode’s particular focus on homelessness is specifically significant, and we are proud to have partnered with them to provide financial education for free.”
