CAC 2022 Legacy Luncheon Announces Stephanie Land as Speaker
THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The Community Assistance Center (CAC) is thrilled to announce their speaker for the 2022 Legacy Luncheon is Stephanie Land, author of bestselling debut memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive recounting her harrowing saga as a single mom navigating the poverty trap. The 2022 CAC Legacy Luncheon is scheduled for April 22, 2022, at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.
Ms. Land’s unflinching and inspiring testimony exposes the physical, economic, and social brutality that domestic workers face, all while radiating a parent’s hope and resilience.
Proceeds will benefit CAC, a non-profit social services organization providing basic needs assistance with rent, mortgage, utility assistance, food, and clothing as well as case management services, disaster recovery and additional resources to our neighbors throughout all of Montgomery County who are struggling through times of financial crisis. Online Registration, tickets, and sponsorship for the event can be found at www.cac-mctx.org/event/2022-legacy/.
“We are beyond excited to have Stephanie Land as our Keynote Speaker for the 2022 Legacy Luncheon”, said Jennifer Landers, President and CEO of Community Assistance Center. “Stephanie’s story speaks directly to the problems faced by so many people in our community and around the country. Her experiences are eye opening and inspire people to want to take action to make a difference in the lives of others. It is such an honor to have her share her incredible story of bravery, determination and perseverance with us.”
Land’s memoir is a true perspective from the frontlines of struggle, much like the struggles CAC sees in the community with their clients. The physical pain of poverty is portrayed in the Netflix series helping to dispel the myth that poor people are responsible for their own predicament, and just need to try harder. Instead, Land reveals the real culprits of situation: domestic violence, untenable minimum wages, high housing costs, and government assistance programs that fail the people they ostensibly serve that are common challenges throughout the county and the country.

The Legacy Luncheon is an opportunity for Community Assistance Center (CAC) to recognize local community members who serve as champions for CAC and make significant contributions to our Montgomery County neighbors in need along with promoting the programs and services provided by this vital agency. The event will honor local leaders, business partners, faith partners, fellow service organizations, and the amazing power of volunteers.
Through times of uncertainty, Community Assistance Center (CAC) is a beacon of hope in the community. In Montgomery County, 10% of county residents are below the Federal Poverty Level with another 22% of residents identified as Asset Limited, Income Constrained, and Employed (ALICE) meaning families have income above the Federal Poverty Level, but not high enough to afford basic household necessities. Year to date, CAC has provided over 12,400 units of service and $1,500,000 in financial assistance to Montgomery County residents struggling through financial crisis.
