Every February includes two important observances that speak to social action:
Black History Month and Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.

Each months’ observance carries a different weight of historical context and import. I also think they share an important commonality. Read More

Thank You For Your Support
Funding from our partners supports CRC’s mission to help our neighbors create paths to healthy food, stable homes and safe relationships.

We are grateful for the generous support received from these individuals and organizations in January:

Lucky Duck Foundation

Welborn Family Donor Advised Fund

Country Friends
Pacific Western Bank
The Corrine Rentfrow Therrien Foundation

The Morrison & Foerster Foundation
Capital Campaign
Thank You to Our Leadership Supporters

Last October, the community joined in a celebration as CRC surpassed the halfway mark of achieving our $10.5 million campaign goal and in recognizing key stakeholders whose early and generous support made this milestone possible, including the Anne E. Daigle and Richard A. Heyman Family Foundation, Patricia Moore and Helmut Kiffmann and the Kiffmann Family Foundation, John and Elizabeth Leonard Family Foundation, Sandra and Albert Bertha and The Marriott Daughters Foundation and Janice and Robert Pollock.
We’ve moved into a critical next phase of the campaign thanks to the leadership of our Special Gifts Committee Co-Chairs, Karin and Gary Kloehn, both long-time CRC volunteers and donors.
The Special Gifts Committee is focused on engaging other community members to partner with CRC by making their own meaningful gift or pledge of $100,000 or more. The goal of the committee is to secure an additional $2.6 million in gifts and pledges to get us to 75% of the campaign goal by the end of this year. 
We’re most grateful to Karin and Gary for accepting the Co-Chair positions, and to their fellow committee members for their service commitment: Kevin Campbell, Elaine Dodge, Lydell Fleming, Elizabeth Leonard, and Sheri Seipel-Burtt.
Join Us in the Leadership Gift Challenge

Elizabeth and John, whose family foundation has already made a $500,000 gift commitment to the capital campaign, are encouraging others in the community to join them in partnering with CRC for the building of our new campus. All challenge gifts may be pledged for a period of up to five years, in amounts ranging from $25,000 - $100,000.
John and Elizabeth Leonard
“Too many households don’t earn enough to afford the basic necessities of life. These families often have to make decisions on whether to buy food, pay rent or cover medical care.
Together, we can build a new campus to serve our neighbors, to receive the help and hope they need to prosper and create better futures.”
The essential needs for living, and the foundation for CRC’s programs and mission, are summed up in these six words: Healthy Food. Stable Homes. Safe Relationships.
