United Way, Awards And New Faces (June 2018)

May was crazy! First there was the great turnout for Spring Fling 2018, and the Women’s Impact Fund awarded Families Doing Time the Human Services Grant.  On June 7, the United Way Board voted to support CCT with $172,250 funding for FY19.  These are important investments in our organization, and will help us improve the economic mobility opportunities of our clients and families. 

Former Resident Graduates

Congratulations to former resident Ludenia!!! She graduated from Gardner Webb with a bachelor’s degree in May. Ludenia worked on the degree while she was with us, and had funding from the CCT Education Fund and the Sunshine Ladies Foundation.

Meet Our Interns 

Corrina Bost (L) 
I am in my fourth year at Appalachian State University. After this summer, I’ll have my Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice with a minor in Anthropology.

I am an aunt to three nephews and a sister to two brothers, three sisters, two brothers-in-law, and a sister-in-law. I enjoy cooking, reading, running, and watching any episode of ‘The Office’ or ‘The Walking Dead.’

My favorite movie is ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.’ I enjoy doing hair, nails, and most things cosmetology-related!

Kate Jennings (R)

I just finished my first year at UNC-Chapel Hill studying Global Health with a concentration in Latin American studies. I am pre-med and hope to one day combine public heath and medicine.
I enjoy running, reading, politics, and writing. I found the internship through Covenant Church’s People in Mission program and will be surrounded this summer by them, my mom, dad, stepmom, and brother.
I look forward to meeting 30 new faces and seeing where this summer leads!


At CCT we rely on generous donors like you to provide the resources we need. Thank you to everyone who donated this Spring.
