This will be the next great social theory we are now at a time for the first time in history where we may not be able to see god but maybe we can get a chance to through his eyes and maybe help answer a few of them prayers
This non profit is amazing. There are so many people who don't have an identity, no name, just a morgue number. Their families are looking for them and they don't know that they've been murdered, died by accident or even natural causes. It adds to the heartache that they can't provide a proper burial so they can rest in peace. This non profit gives families hope. They work very hard in making sure several cases are made available to the public, each day, so they can get as many details and sometimes a computer generated picture or a sketch out for people to see. I've seen a lot of non profit sites and none of them are run as well as this one. These folks are hard working and are a great resource for information and I consider all families lucky to have them.
I have volunteered at this non-profit for a few months now, and I enjoy it!! It is a great opportunity to have the chance of figuring out who these unidentified victims are, and possibly reconnect them with their loved ones who are searching for them. The hours are flexible and the interactions with the other volunteers are always great, we all get along. I have gotten to speak to coroners and medical examiners from around the country, and worked with them to help match some cases. Overall my experience here has helped me get a better understanding of what happens with these victims, and Im glad I can help them.
As a volunteer you already have the mind set to contribute your time and talents. Generally, most volunteers will volunteer to causes they have been affected by.
Can You Identify Me is a nonprofit organization I personally have never heard of and thankfully never had to experience such a horrific topic.
After meeting with Rebel Morris, Executive Director and founder of CYIM I found myself even more intrigued and impressed with the training and one on one time Rebel took explaining in detail what the organization is about. She also gave me the opportunity to ask as many questions about volunteer time, the team, the website, the findings, and helped me to figure out where I would best fit in. The website is one of the best user friendly websites I have ever encountered. The communication through Rebel’s (Can You Identify Me) FaceBook wall is informative, intelligent, and respectful to the subject at hand.
Thank you Rebel Morris, Board Members, Forensic Artist, and volunteers for their hard work and dedication for such a heartbreaking, but great cause. Without the computer networking, data and forensic art reconstruction families may never be able to locate loved ones.
I wanted to contribute some time to the community when I came accross "Can You Identify Me" this past March. Since then I have gained some valuable skills and made some wonderful friends which is something I was not expecting. I have seen first hand at the difference this nonprofit has made within the community with limited resources.
I moved from S. Florida three years ago, after my husband passed away. I was lost without him and only left my home to go grocery shopping. I decided that I needed to get out of the house and do something to help others. I found CYIM and became part of the family immediately. This has changed my life as I get out to volunteer and have made some good friends here. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and you will also be part of our family as soon as you start volunteering. The feeling that you are helping others makes volunteering so rewarding and I look forward to the days I'm scheduled to work.
CYIM caught my attention through volunteer match. I wanted to be part of an organization that made a difference in others lives. What a Blessing CYIM is in knowing that they are working with the local community (and Nationally!) in bringing awareness about the unidentified!
I have been working with CYIM for about a year now, and this is an organization that fills a void overlooked by many other groups, whether government or nonprofit. The chair has been very dynamic in establishing a volunteer center, building partnerships with other groups and experts, and bringing greater attention to the nation's missing and unidentified.
I am so pleased to have come across this Nonprofit. I have not been volunteering ling at all and I already feel like I am family! Everyone is so kind and welcoming, and I love that they are so accepting and loving to EVERYONE.
The things they do for these families who have lost their loved ones is so wonderful and heart warming. I am truly blessed to have come across "Can You Identify Me?" and become a volunteer. I am looking forward to all the great things that we ALL will do together and individually because of the amazing people who put together "CYIM?".
I have hope that this organization will grow into something even more amazing and well known. They truly deserve it.
I have always loved volunteering and was passionately searching for an organization that I felt I could make a difference being a part of. I found that organization when I came across Can You Identify Me. I immediately found an interest in their cause and became a volunteer in March of 2015. I have worked directly on case updates and recently worked my first potential match. Knowing there is a possibility that an unidentified victim's family may finally find closure is amazing. No words can express how grateful I am to this organization, its volunteers, and its executive director/founder Rebel J. Morris. I have not only helped others, but have also helped myself by being a part of it. Through this organization and the experiences I have had with it, I now know what I want to do with my life. No matter what you want to do in life, this organization can provide you with direction, experience, friendship, and an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those who are searching for a loved one and of those whose lives were lost and remain unidentified.
