English Language Instructors
Nancy and Claude Cox
Claude and Nancy Cox, both retired teachers, have been teaching Citizenship and English/Civics classes to adults participating in CCA’s English Language and Citizenship program for the past year. They were recently honored at Barbara B. Rose’s Volunteer of the Year Awards ceremony hosted by the Midtown Atlanta Rotary Club. This dedicated couple have regularly attended professional development workshops with Catholic Charities Atlanta and at the regional USCIS office in Atlanta. The expertise and enthusiasm they bring to our program is unparalleled. The Cox’s students have maintained the highest attendance and progress rates of all the students in our program. Every student in Claude’s class has either applied for or is ready to apply for naturalization. Dedicated volunteers like the Cox family are what help Catholic Charities Atlanta provide the much needed services in our community that remove barriers to self-sufficiency and wholeness.
Junior Good Samaritan Guild
The Junior Good Samaritan Guild (JGSG) was established to encourage young people to become involved in the work of Catholic Charities Atlanta (CCA). The Guild is open to any student (seventh graders and above) in both Catholic and non-Catholic schools. JGSG members are expected to participate in service programs provided by CCA and/or make some other commitment to learning about and telling others about how to nurture the less fortunate. This will extend the rich tradition these schools have in providing educational service opportunities to learn about the less fortunate and in offering service to the underprivileged and under served.
