We love hearing from former residents. And after 50 years of ministry, there are quite a few of them. We heard from several alumni last year during our 50 Stories for 50 Years of ministry project. Sometimes we receive an email, other times a phone call. God has a special way of surprising us with their stories.
Our residential team recently heard from one young adult who shared his appreciation for his time at CCHO as well as his desire to help others. Here’s his why:
“Because you treated me like a person. You showed me dignity and respect, and I want to help kids because I can relate to them with the things I’ve been through.”
Dignity and respect are another perfect way to describe worth—and that’s our purpose at CCHO—to help more people experience their worth in Christ.
Our residential staff serves youth clients for a relatively short but critical amount of time. Regardless of the length of their stay, the quality and compassion of our services are the same. “It’s so important to remember that we plant, and we water, but God ultimately gives the increase,” said Brandon Jurkovich, LISW, CRC Clinical Manager. “I’m praising God for the beautiful increase blooming in this young man’s life!”
We are so grateful for our staff who plant and water hope and truth in the lives of our residents. Our team is growing to serve more kids as we reopen cottage two this fall. Join us in being part of life change for hurting kids and teens.
