Notes From Ish

Ismael Herrera


The seasons will change this month as we say goodbye to summer and welcome fall on September 22. Those cooler temperatures will definitely help our team carry out its work in Farmersville, CA, a project we introduce you to this month. We also have some good news to share with you regarding two of our programs that recently received funding support from the State of California. In anticipation of this year's San Joaquin Valley Affordable Housing Summit, we offer you access to a report outlining the current housing challenges confronting our region. Lastly, we introduce you to a young man who, after impressing our team as a volunteer over the summer, became the newest member of Team OCED.

Until next month...


Ismael D. Herrera, Jr.
Interim Executive Director
