Thank you to the 18 volunteers from Church of the Risen Christ in Denver for your support of CFCA’s sponsored friends and their families.

One of the most important things our sponsors can do on a CFCA awareness trip is spend time with the families who are working hard to find a path to self-sufficiency.

You are important voices of encouragement. Plus, meeting the families is a ton of fun!
