What do you love about your work with Catholic Charities of East Tennessee?
One of the best things about my work at CCETN is seeing the incredible services our staff provide, day in and day out, always with compassion and integrity. Even though, as HR Manager, I do not typically provide direct client services, it is an honor to be in a position that provides support to the program staff.
Why do you support CCETN’s mission and programs?
I support the mission and values of Catholic Charities because it is grounded in Catholic Social Teaching while respecting the beliefs, values, and circumstances of all clients. One of the things that excite me most about the services Catholic Charities provides is that we do so much more than providing a quick fix for an immediate need. While some services meet the immediate needs, there is a larger focus on education, community support, and empowerment.
Why are you thankful for CCETN’s donors?
I am thankful for our donors for trusting Catholic Charities to be good stewards of their donations.
