Our heart is to not only change the community of east Pasco, but to also help empower young people around the TriCities who have been pushed to the margins.

Typically we operate with single moms and minorities who have been pushed to the edges of society and need encouragement and support, as well as love and direction through programs like the Servant Leadership Courses and the Collegium Cafe Job Training Program. The Servant leadership Course

is provided through the Center for Sharing and was designed to help people and businesses begin the practice of leading people through service modeled by Robert Greenleaf, in order to help cast the eyes of the world on those who need it most.


The Collegium Café Job Training Program places an emphasis on individual skill building, teamwork, and accountability. The Cafe manager and CFS staff (Job Training Team) work with participants in the areas of job training, personal development, academic education, and potential job placement. The purpose of this is to increase self-sufficiency, obtain new job skills, develop résumés, explore career path ideas, and help start a career. The Job Training Program lasts a minimum of one year for each participant. We are all about creating a safe place where people are becoming healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, and more likely themselves to serve one another.
