"I'm proud to be involved with SCC because it's a group of people that come together seeking a win-win, mutually beneficial ways of building community. I think it's a way people reach beyond themselves and try to find some kind of common good which isn't that frequent these days. I've met lots of great individuals and been involved in some projects that are close to my heart.
"SCC has guided me to resources I didn't know existed, and showed me that I'm not alone. I was an individual who went from homeless, to having lots of issues, to being a realized individual, and eventually actually contributing to something larger than myself, which is this community. That's progress."
"When Cobble Hill Apartments had problems renewing the expiring-use contract with the owners, SCC came down and helped us out. We had meetings and they pulled us through. We're in low income senior housing, and could have been put out. We were saved by SCC.
