Cook, Bishop Cosgrove Center
"I just feel like me being here is the best thing that could have ever happened to me," says Angelique, cook at the Bishop William M. Cosgrove Center.
Angelique, who now serves as head cook preparing nearly 400 meals a day, first came to the center through Cuyahoga County’s Work Experience Program almost 12 years ago. After completing the program, Angelique continued to volunteer on her own.
"I saw all the wonderful things that they do to help people and I just fell in love with it," she says. "It just seemed like when I got here this was the place for me. I felt home."
Angelique found more than just a job at the Bishop Cosgrove Center—over the last 12 years, she’s received her driver’s license, completed two college degrees, and has received several other certifications.
"Catholic Charities plays a big part in my life," she says. "And I just think that me being here is God's calling, like I'm actually needed. I can do something good."
