This organization, has truly opened my eyes on how there are others in need and how little but how important it is to help anyway we can. I'm glad that i chose this site, and proud of what the City Hall is doing for our community.

CIO is wonderful organization to volunteer in. I had a great time there. The people who work there are amazing, kind, and help a lot to students. They do an incredible work helping the community. Many families have being benefited by them. I highly recommend this organization in my school, not only because they are wonderful but the activities students do during the service learning help them to grow as person and see the necessity of others.

It was a great experience working with CIO in Hialieah Gardens, I helped to create the Thanksgiving basket for seniors and low income people. The organization leaders have wonderful attitudes and are truly didicated to their service towards the community and it's people. This is one of the best volunteer organization They really help the community, and they teach students the importance of helping our community. The concept of service others is really clearly, "Giving is like Receiving". GOD bless them.

This is a great place where you get to help other people, and it makes you feel good about what you're doing, because you know you're doing it for a great cause. I had a great time helping the elderly and it's an experience that I would recommend for anyone.
