Chris Dentice

Program Coordinator

``What we do here is very special. I see such brokenness turn into new lives and promising futures. I am able to share the love of Jesus Christ and give hope to women that came in hopeless. I see mom’s reunited with their children and women finding employment and finally their own homes. What a blessing!``

``I enjoy being a part of CVRM and helping change people’s lives, assisting clients to get to our Programs and any other resources that we may have available. CVRM is truly a blessing to me, it saved my life and I enjoy giving back to the community and sharing my story. I have seen how many of our clients have successfully graduated from our programs and have moved out with a stable job and housing.
