“Thanks to the support I received from CCD, my daughter received a great preschool education and I was able to finish school and find a good-paying job as a surgical technical at a local hospital.” - Natalie

“I was able to take classes through ROP and Goodwill while my son went to preschool at CCD. I now work part-time, and we recently moved from a homeless shelter into our very own apartment.” – Diana

“My son and I were homeless, but found housing at the Villages at Cabrillo. Thanks to CCD’s Cabrillo Center, Anthony received care and education five days a week – plus a healthy breakfast, lunch, and snack each day. I knew he was safe and cared for, which allowed me to find work and eventually leave the Villages for our own apartment.” – Katrina
