Cresson Pod Empowerment Center

United Way of Hood County has partnered with the City of Cresson, the Cresson Pods, and United Way of Hood County community partners to create a safe space that promotes a healthy environment focused on fostering personal growth, cultivating meaningful relationships, and encouraging community involvement.
