Public Safety Power Shutoff

 

In 2018, California had one the deadliest and most destructive fire seasons ever with over 1.8 million acres burned. We are working now to better prepare our communities for wildfires and disasters. One focus has been to increase the access to safety information that gives our residents what they need to plan and prepare.
BWOPA is working with Pacific Gas & Electric Company on this, and we hope it makes all of the difference in keeping everyone safe.
People are being asked to prepare a Five Minute Plan to evacuate their homes immediately and watch for Red Flag Warnings. Evacuation orders means you have to leave right away to avoid getting stuck. Preparing a Five Minute Plan gets your family ready to go quickly once you are ordered to leave.
There are steps that must be taken in order to be able to leave in 5 minutes.
  • Mark evacuation routes on map
  • Plan where to go if you can’t come home
  • Put together an emergency supply kit
  • Explain plan to children
  • Practice leaving your home in 5 minutes
Visit PG&E.com to learn more ways to keep you and your family safe during this Wildfire Season.

BOSS Helping BOSS Women

We Invite You To Join Us!

BWOPA partners with 100 Black Women of the Bay Area & the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. Xi Gamma Omega Chapter for the"BOSS Women Helping BOSS Women" - an initiative set to support women in the Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency (BOSS) - Career Training and Employment Center (CTEC) program.

In an effort to lift the self-esteem and remove the barriers to be self-sufficient, the collective of black women organizations' goal is to gather women clothing of ALL sizes, to include: slacks, blazers, professional tops, dresses, skirts, shoes, brief bags, purses, and scarves to support their efforts for on the job and for interviews.

Since a large portion of the women in the CTEC programs are formerly incarcerated and/or homeless, many may lack sufficient clothing for interviewing or in a job setting. A large number of the women are excited to obtain a job interview, but are let down when they realize they do not have the proper interview attire.

We ask members of the community to join us in this effort to bring a little more joy in our community.

BOSS works daily to fulfill its mission to help individuals become self-sufficient. Self-sufficiency is the means to be able to support one self without relying on solely on assistance. It is our goal to assist the women of BOSS in their efforts to become self-sufficient and prosperous.

If you are interested in supporting and have gently worn or new clothes for women of all sizes - e-mail staff@bwopa.org for upcoming drop off locations and events.

Or visit www.bwopa.org.
