"CSC does more than help children reach their potential. It is at CSC that these children realize they have potential. Their lives are so full of stress and challenge, they don’t see it. Without CSC, they probably never would."

“I’ve seen her approach things with a much-increased drive and stick-to-it attitude even when faced with adversity.”


“We define success in the smallest of moments: smiles, friendship, laughter; and the grandest of milestones: high school graduations, college completion, jobs.”
