“For a few years after I graduated from Messiah College, I worked for an engineering firm that helped design hospitals, schools, and offices, but I always felt disconnected from the actual people who these buildings were aiding. Working with CURE, I get to merge my engineering skills and my passion for serving others. Every day, I get to witness the impact the hospital has on the community. The same children who were carried into the hospital broken and needing healing now walk out of the gates of the hospital and to their homes.”
Andrew, Construction Project Manager
