Harris featured in SF Chronicle!

Harris, Corpsmember of the YearWe are thrilled to share with you the inspiring story of Harris Cox, 2015 Corpsmember of the Year, who is featured in today’s San Francisco Chronicle.

After being badly burned at age six, he spent the next six years in a coma. When he awoke, his only family member, his grandmother, slipped into a coma and died.

For many years, he was angry and alone, lashing out at a world that didn’t care for him — until he came to Civicorps and found his family.

Read Harris’ incredible story of “reaching and flying for hope” in today’s San Francisco Chronicle article.

Afterwards, we encourage you to watch Harris’ emotional and moving Corpsmember of the Year speech. Every year The Corps Network choose five outstanding youth across the nation for this prestigious award. Civicorps is proud to have him honored.

As a supporter of Civicorps, you are part of this man’s incredible journey and we thank you for supporting our work to help youth like him heal from past traumas and connect to their inner greatness.

Thank you for your belief in Harris and your belief in Civicorps.
