Mission in Action


Children Enrolled in CCEVA Programs Enjoy a Trip to Washington, D.C. 

Children whose families take part in Catholic Charities’ Grandparents As Parents (GAP) & Strengthening Families Programs (SFP) enojyed a trip to our nation’s capitol last week.  Thanks to the generosity of Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers, Drs. avage, Sabol & Visser Orthodontics, CCEVA Board members  and Tickets for Kids Charities, 40 children got to enjoy the Major League Baseball FanFest!

While the children enjoyed seeing the monuments and spending the day with Major League baseball representatives & players, their Grandparents and Guardians got to enjoy a day to themselves — many thanks to our staff and volunteers who supervised the trip.

These families often do without and “extras” in order to meet the needs of the children in their care, making this trip so special for everyone involved.

Many, many thanks to our Board and Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers for providing the transportation for the trip.  We’d also like to thank Drs. Savage, Sabol & Visser Orthodontics and Coastal Threads for providing brightly colored t-shirts which enabled staff and volunteers to keep tabs on everyone in their care, and for going the extra mile to recognize the Grandparents who serve as parents to the children in their care by providing t-shirts just for them in recognition that they are the world’s “true superheroes”!
