I have been sitting at the CSCAA site on Thursdays for the last year and a half. I have gotten to know the people at Site 2 quite well. I have witnessed first hand the amazing work they do and the quality of service they provide to the individuals and families they serve. I am proud to say that my organization partners with them and they truly share our mission of providing dignified service to those in need. It's also reassuring to me that I have them as a referral source in my daily employment when I come across families that can benefit from the kind and caring family workers at CSCAA. Keep up the GREAT work!!!!!
