I became a board member for Compassion Connection because I was amazed at the tri-fold counseling/coaching/caring approach to ministry. For an organization that is just 5 years old, it has grown exponentially to serving hundreds of families in the Pittsburgh region. Often, when a person comes in need of counseling, there are other unmeet needs that the coaching groups can meet. At Christmastime, Compassion Connection makes it possible for hundreds of chidren who would otherwise go without presents to enjoy some gifts of the season in a Christian spirit. What a wonderful, healthy, and well-run organization!
