La Familia Counseling Center
By, Nicoda Adams
This week as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month we want to give a giant shout out to La Familia Counseling Center for their tireless efforts to make sure that community members received the assistance needed to stay in their homes after the eviction moratorium for California renters ended on Sept. 30″.
“Juana Peralta Gallegos is one of about 200 Sacramento County residents who have applied to receive assistance through the Sacramento Emergency Rental Assistance (SERA 2) Program that La Familia Counseling Center is helping distribute. She works cleaning houses, and when the pandemic hit she was left without a job. This led her to miss five rent payments. She says she packed and was ready to leave her house, and without a backup plan or any family in Sacramento, she says she and her two sons would have ended up homeless.”
