For the first time in years, Rose has hope again.

““I would recommend CSS to others because it has taken a lot of stress off me.  I don’t have to worry about if I’m going to have enough to cover my rent and bills.  They really do care about people, and they want to help.”

    “There is no escape from giving, if you want to know who you are and be who you are called to be, if you want to live a life that is fully human. Giving is necessary to pull us out of our self-centeredness and to bring us into communion with others. We give because we love. We love because we have freely received love from God. The first school of giving is the family. The first gift if the gift of ourselves. Spouses learn to live this in their marriage. Parents live this in the sacrifices they make for their children. Siblings live this for each other. And as we are opened to an awareness of the needs of another, we are drawn into other types of giving as well, sharing talent and treasure. God has modeled this for us in the life and total self-giving of Jesus.”
