Favorite Aspect of CFT
"Collaborating with incredible coworkers, each bringing our own special skills to offer services, programs and opportunities to empower the North Texas community to do good. Each time I attend a Cause-minded Conversation, participate in North Texas Giving Day, volunteer with Freedom Day or even talk to a colleague about what they are up to, I marvel at the passion and energy every employee dedicates to the work of CFT and our community."
“Vocation is the place where our deep gladness meets the world's deep need.”
