  • Obtaining Insurance 101

  • Benefits Of Continuous Coverage

As an advocate for the community, we will continue to develop a better understanding of insurance by identifying insurance related problems, assisting in the decision making process and helping to offer insurance solutions to the communities.

2019 Impact

  • 50 Plus Referral Calls

  • 20 Policies Written from Referrals
