Our goal and commitment is to keep our readers and followers educated and informed. This is not an endorsement.

Alecia Washington is an unselfish, dedicated community servant and community leader. She has logged an impressive record of community service and advocacy for the past 15 years. Her community outreach programs include providing food, clothing, shelter, living wage employment, child enrichment and economic development to Stonecrest residents and beyond.
She has counseled, mentored and volunteered. She has accomplished all this through her non-profit organization, City of Hope Safe Haven.
