Our hearts are heavy as our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Sylvia Gooding Ray, our Founder.

She believed in God, she believed in second chances and she believed ALL PEOPLE, given the right support, could achieve anything. We will continue to honor her legacy by continuing her life's work here at CEED.
