At Hope Solutions, Cristina finds affordable housing for our underserved population throughout Contra Costa County, while collaborating with outside agencies to better serve their needs to successfully thrive in the community.

Cristina’s personal experience with the underserved population has made her acutely aware of what it takes to be empowered and to successfully overcome hardships. With a degree in Social Work, Cristina provides advocacy and supportive services to help individuals and families overcome homelessness. Helping those in needs has brought joy and fulfillment to her life.
