From the Desk of John Van Cleef, CEO | August 2022

    I often describe CRC as the child of our community’s compassion and capacity to help our neighbors who are experiencing hunger, homelessness and hurt. The assistance could be for the short- or long-term. The individual life story could be uncomplicated or complicated. The path forward could be direct or winding.

    Whatever the assistance, story or path, CRC is accountable to those who fund its social ventures – private or government – in a trustworthy manner that creates sustainable impact in the lives of the people we serve.

    This newsletter features CRC’s Impact/Annual Report for 2021 – our best effort to highlight our accountability to you, with our openness to receive questions from you. After all, CRC’s work is an expression of your desire to help our neighbors create paths to healthy food, stable homes and safe relationships.
