The latest CSS Imperial News

Our latest Patron newsletter shares stories of HOPE IN GOOD LIFE from all across southern Nebraska!

by Katie Patrick

As a nonprofit organization, it can be tempting to gauge our success solely by quantitative measures—how many diapers are distributed, how much rental assistance given, how many pounds of food provided—especially given the requirements of our funders and grants.

However, at CSS, we strive to balance these metrics with a commitment to quality over quantity, ensuring that each individual we serve receives the attention and care he or she deserves.

On a recent Spirit Catholic Mornings appearance, CSS Immigration Legal Services team member Bradley Brestel shared his journey to the Catholic faith.

In June, my family traveled to Stromsburg to attend the Swedish Midsommer Festival, a tradition that started the first summer Ryan and I met. While Ryan and I both have Swedish roots, Stromsburg is where my husband grew up and spent his middle school and high school years so it’s a particularly meaningful trip back home for him. We look forward to this festival each summer: a celebration of heritage, yes, but it’s also Ryan’s chance to share his past with our daughters.

Several local businesses have come together to present a used vehicle, along with the money they raised, to a family who recently endured the heartbreaking loss of their unborn child following an auto accident that also totaled their car. CSS teamed up with a group called BNI to provide this hope on wheels. In this episode, Kendall Warnock of A1 Automotive and Todd Speidell of Eustis Body Shop shares how fulfilling it is to bring this Hope in the Good Life.
