I have supported ABLE Families for about four years and have had the opportunity to meet the leaders and some of the children they help. It is a faith-based charity that makes its services available to all, making a real difference to poor families. ABLE Families integrates the efforts of several programs, and they faithfully direct targeted gifts to the intended recipients. The fundraising costs appear to be minimal, so nearly all funds go to the needy. The newsletter is excellent. This is one charity anyone can support with confidence.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the good feeling that accompanies helping those truly in need.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

100% dedicated. Faithfulness and motivation are simply unexcelled.
