This is my second stint at CWE, having been a Board member for many years and having served as Chairman of the Board of Directors for five years. My affection and affiliation with CWE derives from the excellence of its programs, the competence of its staff and volunteers and the results it achieves. We know that families thrive when they achieve economic security. I am proud of the work that CWE does to help assure and promote that economic success.
