CCRES is unique because we strive to do more than provide high quality caring staff. We invest in all the communities we reach, supporting programs that directly benefit students and families. We are always looking for opportunities to make a difference. CCRES makes a difference in the lives of children and families by providing grants to non-profits throughout our service territory. Not only do we provide financial support, but we also contribute our time and energy. Throughout the year, you will find CCRES office and field staff participating in or leading a variety of creative, successful fundraising events.
