Success Stories

At ACC, we strive to recognize staff members, volunteers, and community members that go above and beyond to succeed. We are inspired by you and we are thankful for everything you do to support our community!

Staff Member of the month

Kate Weatherbee handles her work with grace, positivity, and care. She understands and recruits for every department and program at ACC. She has recently implemented apartment sponsorships, greatly benefiting our newest arrivals.

She supports interns and their supervisors. She coordinates donation drives and finds volunteers for events and fundraisers. And somehow she does all this part-time and with a smile on her face. Kate is both dedicated and dependable, and a great asset to ACC!

Volunteer of the month

Ellie Adelman is a Masters in Social Work student at DU, former project manager, and peace corps volunteer who came to ACC with years of expertise about working and living abroad and with refugees and immigrants. Ellie took her position with the PC program humbly and offered her therapy techniques to make our community members feel understood and listened to. Most of all, we can't wait to watch the nonprofit you are currently creating to alleviate the burden of the housing crisis for our community members. Thanks for making the world a better place!
