Join Us

We believe a strong foundation creates the best chance for life success. Our work harnesses the potential of children, young adults, and families to reach their life goals. However, it takes a community to make what we do possible. Without the generosity of individuals, businesses and foundations, we wouldn’t be able to provide the life-changing resources we do to those we serve. Opportunities to support CCCS range from volunteering as an individual, joining our Junior Board or becoming a part of our staff. No matter what, each contribution helps build a strong foundation, clearing a pathway for lifetime success
