Reviews for African American Mutual Assistance Network Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I was fortunate to be able to be involved with the AAMAN's 2016 Juneteenth event. The organization exhibited great warmth and hospitality to all those who volunteered and participated in the event. Community members were greeted with enthusiasm and were able to participate in a wide range of socially, culturally, and historically significant events. As a volunteer, I was received warmly by all those helping to run the event. I believe that AAMAN is doing an excellent job catering to the needs of the community. They are helping to build bridges of trust and communication between community members. I applaud their efforts!

I have heard nothing but amazing things about this organization and the walking "examples" and "proof" are the children. Smiling, happy and most importantly...educated! The love that Mr. and Mrs. Adams have for these children and their passion for teaching is heartwarming and is missing in so many schools. God Bless them!

My daughter has made huge gains by being a part if their literacy program. She started when she was 3 1/2 and now that she just turned 4, she is already working on phonics. The staff there is nice, and they have a small student to teacher ratio which makes the program very effective.

We supported AAMAN do to their Youth Services. Their Pre-k Literacy services for 3-5 year old children is an excellent early childhood education program and their Next Step Program that services 9th to 12th graders is designed to assist these youth to choose a career and/or secure gainful employment.

Because of the organization's low cost and target populations, I was moved to donate funding and supplies to help further their cause, goals and purpose.

Their literature class for my 3 year old daughter has greatly helped her improve her expression and communication skills.. There has never been a moment of regret but appreciation for the team. My little princess always looks forward to going daily.. And the affordability is a little fraction of what we receive.

I have three children, two of which are in middle school, and I wish this organization was around for them. I am happy I have a small child that I was able to enroll into the program. I was referred by a close friend who's child graduated the program recently. I was just amazed at how advanced their child was and needed to know where their child went. I drove right down to their office and enrolled my child that day. My daughter loves both Mr. & Mrs. Adams and can't wait to go learn, sing songs and have fun. They are truly a blessing!!!!!

Cecil and Valjean Adams do a wonderful job teaching young children how to red. The classes are outstanding and a child will learn to read at a very high level in a short period of time. My only issue - I wish they continued the program through 1-2 grades in the summer. I want more of their classes for my child.

Wow! There are so many wonderful things to say about Mr. & Mrs. Cecil Adams. They are a pillar in the community and love helping children advance. Needless to say, I have spread the word to all family and friends as I believe the Clara Fields Multicultural Literacy Program needs to be the foundation to every childs education.

Cecil and Valjean Adams are outstanding leaders in our community, ensuring that young children are well prepared to enter school and that older kids receive mentorship opportunities. As we know, providing a great base for young children is imperative for later school success; through their Clara Fields reading program, young children are given tools needed to ensure that they are great students, which not only helps the students, but insures that the served-communities also benefit. I have seen first hand the great success stories they have fostered, and we are very lucky to have AAMAN here in Western Wisconsin.
