From the Desk of John Van Cleef — A Volunteer's CRC Story
Every day we’re surrounded by reminders of why we do what we do. The best word I know for it is compassion – not just feeling for someone, but walking with someone in their experience to be a comfort and help.

No one can do another person’s journey, but this beautifully written story captures the power of walking with someone on their journey.

To our volunteer who took time to author and share her experience: Thank you for helping us see and feel what we’re surrounded by every day. I promise the careful reading of this will be worth the three to four minutes of your time. Read more
