Today is National Armed Forces Day. All the staff, residents and volunteers at CCO would like to remember our homeless shelter guests who have served our country in the armed forces. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development estimate that 62,619 veterans are homeless on any given night. Let’s serve our brave men and women especially in their time of need.
“When I got to the courthouse my lawyer informed me that the sheriff was coming and I was going to be arrested. They wanted to know if I was going to stay or run.
I decided to stay.”
The number of homeless fathers with children is increasing. It is our privilege to welcome dads with kids into CCO and help them achieve the success for themselves and their families. Take a few moments and read Lydell’s story here. Or take a look at the other success stories available in Our Story section on the right.
The changed lives you will read about would not be possible without your support. Thank you for donating today!
Beautiful planters and flowers were installed along Clifton Avenue just outside of CCO’s Hannah House and Sylvia Center! Andrew Shantz made the planters from repurposed wood. He and fellow gardner, Ted Jindrich filled the containers with soil and colorful flowers.
The flowers bring a burst of color and life to Clifton Avenue. These improvements benefit our shelter guests, staff and neighbors. Thank you!
