The End of the Year is Here!

End-of-Year CalendarAs we say goodbye to 2016, and 2017 emerges on the horizon, let’s carry the spirit of giving into every day of our lives. Consider making an end-of-year donation that would allow CCO to continue welcoming and sheltering over 350 individuals in our family and single adult shelter programs. It’s our privilege to take in homeless fathers with children, three-generational families, single senior citizens, pregnant moms, families with teens, and other families and singles who often find it difficult to get into shelters. We believe everyone has a right to safe shelter.
Take a moment and read Shirley’s story (pictured below) and learn how one outstanding child who was sheltered at CCO with her family went from homelessness to housing and a stable future!
Please consider making a financial donation today. Your gift is 100% tax-deductible.

Heart and Mind

Binbal Chungkham poem imageHeart and Mind
When the mind conquers our heart,
without loosing its compassion.
The gentle mother earth teems with flowers,
each blooms to their fullest beauties.
And the whole world wakes up
with oneness and peace.
But when the heart captivates the mind,
our little life boat floats to the rhythm of our heart.
Unseen and unknown, it rises and falls.
It floats on its fantasy,
yet in this sea of happiness
there is still waves of sorrow and suspicion.
– B. Chungkham
