“My work sent me here to help me, maybe so I didn’t lose my job. This program helped me very much to not fall back into alcoholism. I have new ideas. I’m thinking about learning English. I want to show them I’m a good worker in the future. If God brought me here it was to improve me. I am thankful to my work for the help they have given me. I appreciate Beth Mellema very much. I’ve learned a lot from the classes Beth gave me. If I ever need help in the future I will come back here.”
“I came to CPC overwhelmed with feelings of anger, despair, and failure surrounding my parents divorce. After 7 months of talking and working with Beth Mellema, I have developed confidence in myself and have learned how to positively cope with difficult situations. Her patience and support have been a blessing and I feel so privileged to have found her in my time of need.” — Client Initials: MP || Gender/age: Female/24 yrs old
