CORA (Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse)
July 9, 2014

I have been involved with CORA since 2005. I was initially on the Board of Directors and am currently on the Advisory Board. The professionals and volunteers that comprise the CORA staff are an energetic, dedicated, financially responsible and scrupulous group who bring great passion to what they do. Because the organization provides an incredibly vital and invaluable service to those of San Mateo County whose lives have been shattered by family violence, it deserves the unwavering support of our community.
