CCC Volunteer of the Month:
Michael Bergeron
We honored to introduce you to Volunteer of the Month for July.
Michael Bergeron


Michael has been a consistent member of our CCC team, his willingness to fill in where needed and his infectious smile and laughter provide much needed warmth. 
 Here are his words
:

 "In July 2012, I found the Castro Country Club.  Overcome by feelings of loss, shame and anxiety, the CCC showed me compassion, love, and understanding.  The fellowship introduced me to a new way of life, and provided me the space to live. It is more than a place for meetings and socializing, it is a safe space.  What I found at the club was beyond my expectations, a community of my fellows.  After losing my job, I began volunteering at the CCC and what started as a way to keep busy quickly proved to be lifesaving. Volunteering helped me overcome bouts with depression and has given me purpose in a time of deep despair.   I am proud and thankful that I have been able to give so freely what has been given to me and I plan to continue that, so that the newcomer can find it as well."  -Michael Bergeron
