A young man, who has worked some Community Service hours for us in the past, just called from a nearby store...he encountered a woman in need of assistance so, after sharing what he knew from his time working with us, he called here to get her more information. He served here because he had to. He served her because he cared to.

April 23 - No one likes spending money on car repairs. But when you're struggling to make ends meet, that car repair is so much more than an "nuisance"...it is a full-blown crisis ... a catalyst for putting your life into a downward spiral.
