EVERY PERSON'S STORY MATTERS

Stories of Impact

Stories of impact abound at CCFW… A young mother needing help with school. A veteran struggling with the effects of war. A husband and father looking for employment. We serve tens of thousands in our 28 county diocese each year and their stories serve as our greatest source of inspiration.

Our goal is to make an impact in the lives of each and every person we serve. Watch below to see the difference our work has made in the lives of our fellow community members.

"STC has helped me so much and made a positive impact in my life. The program has helped me to stay on track and be successful in school. It is nice to never feel like I am alone. I can always count on my mentor to provide me with any resources I may need or if I need a friend to talk to my mentor has always been there for me. STC has provided me with helpful resources as a single parent and have made my son’s Christmas’ very special. It has been a struggle for me to earn my college degree and I can’t believe I am so close to finally graduating. I don’t believe I would have been able to do it without the wonderful help and guidance from STC."
