“Our Time. Your Mission.” That motto of Allsup Charitable Services has carried Catholic Urban Programs so far in the last two years. We are blessed to be among five organizations serving East St. Louis receiving complimentary business consultative services from the team at Allsup Charitable Services. Last month we had the opportunity to gather in celebration with the ACS team and representatives from Sister Thea Bowman Catholic School, St. Vincent DePaul, the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center, and Christian Activity Center. While the pandemic took us from in-person to “Zoom” meetings, the work we do in partnership with ACS did not slow down. We are fortunate to have made great strides in strategic planning, data analysis, human resource management, communications planning, volunteer management and more.
