Very great place for the whole family. They threat you like family and they are always there when you need them. Great support and friendly people. EHS is a great program for the little ones, I've learn a lot while on the program I REALLY recommend this place.
I have been working as a community partner through Oakland University in the Baldwin Center's After School program. It is an incredible program that does so much good in the community. The children in this program are given healthy food, literacy experiences, quality education, physical activity, character building, and so much more. What an incredible program, a caring staff, and gem for this community!
The Baldwin Center was so fortunate to have hired Lauren Fuller as the Youth Director. She has done wonders with the children's programs. When I visited today I was so impressed at how well she has cultivated an excellent staff and atmosphere in which kids can feel respected, valued, and thrive. Kudos!
I volunteered at the Baldwin when they were preparing the backpacks for the children to give them for the new school year. Every year they do this and it is wonderful to see the faces of children who would otherwise not receive new school supplies that belong only to them. Baldwin also serves meals to individuals and families in need, allows them the wash clothes and take showers if necessary and they give them the items needed for each. It is a wonderful place and the people who are there are the best and most friendly people around.
I have been donating to the Baldwin Center since 1988 or so and they have impressed me with how much they do for their patrons. I give to them because I know that they don't sell any of the items I gift - they give them away to those in need. No other charities do that. I am trying to help them fulfill their mission to help in the Pontiac community. They are wonderful, caring people who run the programs.
I volunteered the Baldwin Center for the first time in June of 2012, and was impressed by the amount of service provided on what is obviously a shoestring budget. Without exception, the staff is committed and caring; every time I had questions, whether in person or by phone, those I talked with took time to explain at length. I'm looking forward to my next visit!
I work at the Baldwin Center facilitating nutritional classes as an Oakland County Health Educator. The women who are participating in this class, as well as other parts of the Baldwin Center's healthy living series, have had life changing experiences, all because of the programming being done at Baldin. One woman in particular who was diabetic, considered disabled and slightly overweight, has lost over 60 lbs because of nutritional changes to her diet, participting in yoga and walking club. She is now mobile without a cane, and has been able to manage her diabetes with more regularity. Everyone employed by the Baldwin Center is passionate about giving back to their community in postive sustainable ways. It's been a pleasure to be able to be part of their team and involved in the great happenings at the center.
this program was a shock that it existed right underneath my nose. the benefits are amazing.the people are great. u really feel like you are at home and to be able to give something back. thank you baldwin center. I have a new lease on life bless you. want
I came into the Baldwin Center as an intern but to my surprise it turn out to be much more than an internship. Baldwin Center is like a family whether your employed here, a volunteer or are enrolled into their services/programs they treat you with the up most respect. Not only am I an intern here, I am also a parent who's child is involved in the summer program. The summer program is a wonderful program that encourages, teaches, and empowers the kids involved. It gives the parent and the kids a feeling of safety. I have came to be a person that will tell anyone who will listen the great things that Baldwin Center offers and their contributions to the Pontiac area. This is a program that should be duplicated in different cities. If anyone has the time or the passion to make a change or make someone or themselves feel good Baldwin Center is the place to volunteer. Also the food in the soup kitchen is wonderful.
I began volunteering at the Baldwin Center a little over a month ago for a class I am taking. My experience here has been nothing short of amazing. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the programs offered are some of the best I've seen at a non-profit. The Baldwin Center does so much for the city of Pontiac and I'm proud to be able to lend a hand!
We had the pleasure of working with the Baldwin Center with a program that assisted families with nutrition and excercise program for adults and children in our diverse community. We needed space to host the program, Lisa and her staff were so accommodating and met our expectation with a excellent outcomes . Families were excited to participate and the space was very much accommodating for all participants. We are forever grateful for the Baldwin Center and their staff and are a truly commitment to serve our communities. Debra Ehrmann
