“Brian” entered the program experiencing a great deal of anxiety and depression. A hard-working man, Brian had over 30 years of solid employment history. He moved from the East Coast with the desire to be a good father to his two daughters, who live here with their mother. Brian was dedicated to becoming self-sufficient so he could see and connect with his daughters on a regular basis. He had been sleeping outside and was cold, tired, and hungry. During his stay with CWC he applied for over 200 jobs, and finally landed his dream job. Brian was able to find an apartment for him and his two girls. “I will never forget what you all did for me,” Brian said, “Make sure to reserve 3 volunteer spots for me in the coming years because I’ll be volunteering with my girls.”

“I have never been so blessed by another ministry. It is a joy to serve these individuals and families in need. It is as simple as sitting down with your family for dinner. Listening and loving on our guests has taught me so much. It has made me realize how easily I could be in the same place as one of our guests, how grateful I am for the home that I have and how important it is to help those that don’t.”

“Have you ever had one of those days? You know, you lock your keys in the car while it’s running and are stranded in the middle of a parking lot, kinda day? Well, I was having one of those days and a woman drove up in her car and offered to help. She drove me home to get my extra set of keys and back again.
A complete stranger, offered me help.
As we were driving to my home, our conversation revealed that she was currently homeless. I was amazed that God had placed us in each other’s path that day. I informed her that I am a volunteer with CWC. I gave her the information and she dropped me at my car and went on her way. A couple weeks later, I heard about a family that had entered our program. Turns out it was the same family! ”
