May 7 is our monthly Social Justice Sunday, when we donate our offering to a local organization that makes a difference in our larger community.
This month, our offering supports the Center for Community Solutions (CCS). CCS works to end relationship and sexual violence by being a catalyst for caring communities and social justice. Founded in 1969, CCS helps more than 10,000 adults and children each year to heal and prevent relationship and sexual violence. CCS operates the only rape crisis center in the city of San Diego along with a countywide 24-hour bilingual crisis helpline. This nonprofit agency also provides emergency domestic violence shelters, hospital and court accompaniment, as well as legal and counseling services for those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault. CCS also works with local community groups and schools to provide innovative prevention programs to promote healthy relationships and peaceful communities. Their vision is for all people to live full, free, expressive and empowered lives in a safe, vibrant, healthy and peaceful community.
On May 7, our cash offering will be sent to CCS. Checks will benefit Chalice or CCS as you designate.
