This is part of our “It Starts With You” series, highlighting how one action can bring about change in the community. While change is a community effort, it ultimately begins with each one of us choosing to take action.
Meet Cory Scott and learn how it started with him.
How it started
I heard about Second Story, formerly called Alternative House, through my involvement with the local Chamber of Commerce. I was drawn to support the mission to help children in the area. It was shocking to see how many children and families were in need in our affluent area. I was fully committed after being introduced to the amazing staff at Second Story and seeing their strong commitment to the mission of bringing safety, dignity, and love to people in crisis. I wanted to help and sharing information about Second Story with others was a way for me to help spread the word for Second Story.
Cory’s work today
I continue to spread the word to others about the amazing work that Second Story does for our community. I have served on the board of directors, assisting with various organizational details. All people want to feel safe, loved and be able to thrive.
What does It Starts With You mean?
“It Starts with You” means that everyone can make a difference. You just need to decide to make the first move. It takes everyone lending a hand. Some people have time to share, some can donate funds, and some people can help raise awareness.
One of the most powerful ways to make a difference is to give back. Give some of your time and join us for our Beacon of Hope virtual fundraiser on October 26, 2021 at 12:30pm to help transform the lives of young people.
