I was raised by a single mother (my father died when I was very young). My whole life, other people have given to me. Sometimes those gifts were financial, in times of need. Sometimes they were in the form of a helping hand or being present for me at important life events. I was raised under the philosophy of Cura Personalis: “Care for the individual person.” This philosophy demands that we take care of the entire person and care for his or her individual needs. That is what the SECC allows each of us to do in a small way.
