CRU Community Outreach Non-Profit

Relationships for Life

With every person I meet with one-to-one, I try to say “I would love to hear your story. Would you mind sharing it with me?”

CRU Non ProfitBefore I ever have the honor to be a friend, or a partner in community impact, I must first value the story of students, community members, and organizations. Built into every element of our community outreach is the core principle that every life, young and old, has a story that should be heard and valued. As we serve one another amidst the following programs, we should honor the goals and beliefs of each individual and invest in their lives without intent to violate their autonomy. This is how we respond to the challenges that can only be overcome when “a community serves to reach a CRU youtube videocommunity!” Matthew Marcum - CRU Campus Director

Meet Matthew Marcum

Matthew crop260Matthew and Ashley Marcum have seen the power of relational impact through every facet of their lives. Ashley has owned Flowing Grace School of Dance for 12 years and serves over a hundred students and their families, providing free access to low-income students to assure every life has an opportunity for growth. 

Matthew has been a hospice nurse for 15 years and has always been passionate about advocating in the community as a nurse and a mentor. Every outreach initiative his family are building came from needs persistently spoken from the stories of students and families, revealing their greatest needs.

Matthew has built partnerships with non-profits, academic resources, small businesses, and recruited community adult volunteers to assure the maximum impact for students and families. Once they reach 100% funding, they will begin training mentors, who will then become the defining relationship for success in the life of a student. This will be a powerful story for both the student and the mentor.
