“I hope to have a place where I can receive training in different areas like, personal finances and both professional and personal development. It is said that the garment that a woman should always carry with her is confidence and trust in her. I believe in this woman’s program and the PEOC to achieve a better future for my family.” – Claudia Bedolla, CLEAR member
