I wanted to say that Disciples For Christ Communtiy Outreach offer great services for not only adults but kids to with little or no funds. These are working people such as myself that is doing great things in our communities and not being recognized for their efforts so I am glad to be able to leave this review about their good work.

I am a college student now but I have enjoyed the pleasure of participating in disciples for Christ programs since I was a little girl. I participated in the afterschool program, dance, choir, and college prep workshops and worked with the younger kids in the computer lab. This outreach has really helped me become the person that I am today and without their support I don't know how I would have made it, especially with all the negativity in my neighborhoods and my schools. Thanks Disciples for caring about me I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

help me realize that it was very important for me to have that there are people like Disciples that really care and help young people.

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

staff and the people that I meet

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

find a poor family to help

I have been involved with outreach for some years and it has been a blessing to me and my family. A while back my family was hit with two death at the same time and we were unprepared and did not have a lot of money to pay for the two burials and Disciples Outreach got together and went to the media and called for help and raised the money for both burials. I'm so grateful I also participate in the music program and it is such a joy to be apart of this program it has made me grow in my singing. I have also participated in the computer lab this program is such a asset to the community I believe that the Disciples Community Outreach is a God sent every program offered is so much needed and our community is blessed to have these services available to us.

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

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

Loving, caring, consistant, showing so much heart in everything they do but most of all they all are so understanding and never judge mental.

I have been involved with this outreach for a number of years. I have had to privilege of learning in the computer lab to hone my computer skill on presentation design. I have participated in the carpentry workshops as well as the music programs. It is one of the best programs I have ever been a part of. The organizers and founders have created such a family atmosphere you feel like you can learn anything and you usually do.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my job performance at church and at the clinic that I work at taking care of patients

Expand its service space to accomodate more people within the community.

The individual attention you receive and the time they spend with you.

Kind and knowlegable.

Transform our community and propel us into a brighter future.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to spend getting involved in the organization.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Finances to meet all the needs we as clients and volunteers have.

One thing I'd also say is that...

There is a brilliance in leadership with the founders and organizers that is unmatched in my opinion.
