I have been involved with the Stephen Center for approximately 2 years and I am courrently on the board of directors. I have all the employees at the Stephen Center and have been extremely impressed their abilities, their character and their commitment to helping people. The people who work and volunteer at the Center are it's real strenght. I have also work with the Stephen Center in the anaylsis, planning and implementation of their Trift Store and have found their work ethic to be outstanding. I look forward to working with the Stephen Center to help improve or hopefully build a new emergency shelter for the homeless.
