this oraganization has done tremendous work to promote my work, landing me in the local paper 4 times, and giving me encouragement and support to prove to myself that I am a valuable writer and bring thoughtful stories much to the listening community. cocomo has shown not only his strong faith in god, but his strong faith in us as well, proving to us that we like his namesake are like a rock.

I guess I'm biased, really -- but I hope it's in a good way. You see, I am the founder of this organization, and its board, volunteers, clients, and donors never cease to amaze me. Everyone of them gives until they can feel the burn, and they relish with gusto the growth (personal, community, and neighbor-to-neighbor) they get from their commitment, their faith, in action. Truly, I have never witnessed so few accomplish so much in the lives of so many. Every day, I am ever more grateful to have been blessed to be a spark. Grateful for the blessing of my opportunities to be a conduit for connecting my brothers and sisters in the human family to the physical, spiritual, emotional, and creative resources they need to live in wellness and joy.

I’ve personally experienced the results of this organization in the instance that a school boy was empowered to break the chains of shame : he found his pride and freedom one day in bringing home a classmate to visit after 4 years of the family's self-imposed isolation due to the overwhelmingly deplorable sanitary conditions in their living environment. Red Truck Services cleaning, consultation, organizing, and training made the difference.

I would get the organization funded to secure a central space in which to house all of their currently scattered program activities
