Doug Cook serves as a Deacon for San Antonio de Padua Catholic Church in Anaheim and Executive Director of the Orange Diocese Cursillo Movement. He has held many leadership roles in his church and community, including founding and assisting in the operations of San Antonio Family Assistance Ministries, chairing the Deacon Personnel Board, and serving on the Religious Education Board. His passion for helping homeless women and families transition to self-sufficiency has led him to fundraise for, personally contribute to, and assist in the programming of Grandma’s House of Hope. Because of his leadership, more than 120 individuals and families at San Antonio de Padua Catholic Church donate to Grandma’s House of Hope every year, last year’s contribution totaling more than $7,500.
