St. Maximilian Kolbe School, Monica Malseed, Principal

Each week since fall 2018, West Chester University Honors College students have worked with our student writers. The WCU students made this publication possible. They helped our authors hone their writing skills. They conferred with students in small groups or one-on-one to edit pieces assigned in class or written on their own. St. Max teachers and students are grateful for their support and assistance. Their service has been invaluable.www.school.stmax.org/our-school

Chester County Health Department - Ashely Orr

The student we were matched with has been an asset to this project. She is very knowledgeable and has worked patiently with us through many iterations and edits to the new logo. We have been impressed by her level of skill, attention to detail and patience.

Working with WCU's Center for Community Solutions provided me with an amazing opportunity to learn so much about Marketing, Social Media, and the importance of communicating with others. CCS helped me to gain real-life experience in Public Relations and made me to realize what I want to do in my future career.

Community Warehouse Project - Glenda Biron

Thank you for thinking of us with this opportunity. I am definitely interested and will be looking forward to talking with Shrina when she reaches out. Community Warehouse Project has helped over 80 families since December. I cannot thank you and your wonderful students for all they have done to make this project functional and successful. Thank you for everything.

Community Warehouse Project and West Chester Food Co-op - Jeff

Working with the CCS was an incredible and enriching experience. For the first time, I'm working with people who really care about issues affecting the community, and they put every ounce of themselves into everything they do. Not only did I get valuable experience for my career, but I finally felt like I got to HELP for real…

Chester County 2020 - William J. Stevens, III on behalf of the Chester County 2020 Board and Staff

We at Chester County 2020 value our long standing, growing and very productive relationship with West Chester University. We couldn’t keep the Master Planner Program affordable with the use of classroom space at the Graduate Center offered by the University at no charge. We couldn’t aspire to serve our municipalities’ evolving needs without the support of the Center for Community Solutions and the contributions of Drs. Osgood and Katirai and their students.

Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce - Mark J. Yoder, President

The Chamber of Commerce of Greater West Chester worked very closely with the West Chester University Center for Community Solutions to develop an Economic Impact Study around our events, specifically the QVC West Chester Christmas Parade. It was fantastic to have one point of contact to help us benefit from the knowledge base of the entire University. We look forward to working with the Center for Community Solutions on future projects.

RESTART Your Life/RENEW Your Mind - Kevin McDonald, Founder & CEO

On behalf of RESTART Your Life/RENEW Your Mind, I want to thank you for the wonderful website that the WCU Center for Community Solutions staff was able to donate to us. RESTART is a nonprofit assistance fund for brain injury survivors. Without the assistance of this office and gracious generosity of the University to donate services, we would not have been able to create this wonderful site. It has been highly viewed and appreciated by survivors of “The Hidden Injury”. I think the service you are providing in this area is invaluable! Thank you.

Robyn Jewitt Home - Robyn Jewitt, Owner

For the past year and half, I have had the privilege to work with West Chester University’s Center for Community Solutions. From my first conversation with Susan Argentieri, I knew I was in great hands and I was going to enjoy my experience.

I have been very impressed with the 3 students that were carefully vetted to assist with different area of my business. The students possessed the necessary knowledge and skills that I needed in order for my business to succeed. It has been invaluable to me, as a sole proprietor, to be able to collaborate on projects with talented individuals.

I am so grateful that I was introduced to a program that benefits both the community and West Chester University students. Thank you so much for everything!

Chester County Infant and Toddler Program – Lori Gallagher. Director

We are thrilled with the results and as a program that offers services to children and families at no cost, with little to no budget to work with for this type of project, we are forever grateful to the University for their support in making this possible.
