Without question, SCC’s most valuable resource is its people---the leaders who spend countless hours building influential campaigns; the job seekers who attend our Networking Café, and make their rounds to say hello to staff; the real estate partners who make sure our bricks go up; our board and community members who bring an event like this to life; the donors who extend our mission even further---we couldn't do it without you.
