Communities Creating Opportunity
October 31, 2012

Our church has been working with CCO for six years now, and we love the organization. We have watched CCO more than double its capacity in that time, under the great leadership of Executive Director Eva Schulte. Eva manages to hire simply outstanding organizers and to make them even better. Working with CCO has allowed our church to be involved in important change in our city and state; it has greatly increased our own capacity to make change as well. We've been particularly involved in the campaign to cap Missouri's outrageous interest rates on short term loans, which currently average 445% APR. When we are successful in that effort, it will change the lives of thousands of people in our community. We have also been strengthened by the ability to work side by side with a diverse array of persons from nearly every sort of faith community in the Kansas City metro. We look forward to many more years of organizing with CCO.

OCTARIUM
January 21, 2011

Octarium was kind enough to donate their talents to a service of Lessons and Carols at our church, St. Mark Lutheran, in December of 2010. I was fortunate enough to have a seat in the chancel where they were singing, and I was mesmerized. The singers were perfectly pitched and their voices blended spectacularly.

The Great!

the concert, which provided a wonderful experience for the public, and raised much-needed money for our congregation.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing.
