For a year and a half, I took my foster kids to the Family and Children's Place for weekly or biweekly visits with their birth parents. The staff did a great job of keeping us informed about how things were going and letting us know if anything major happened during the visit. They also worked with us whenever we had concerns about things that happened during visits. The girls always enjoyed seeing the staff and felt safe at the visits.

I work in a company that volunteers time, money, and material goods for this organization. Family & Children First is a great place to help heal from those wounds that touch the mind- those through abuse, neglect or other forms of violence. This place provides a resource when all is dark, and provides a light to follow into health and stability through such rough times.

I'm proud to spend my time and efforts helping these people. If something was to happen so traumatically to me, this is the first place I would go.

We received services from a counselor at Family and Children's Place. Counselor was excellent and communicated with us regularly on progress. She has been caring about my family and we have been very pleased with the level of service we have received.

I have volunteered for this organization many times in the past 10 years. Their staff is kind and caring. They do amazing things for hurting families in our community. Their facility is bright and colorful and it allows the children assisted by this organization to receive therapy in a very welcoming atmosphere.

I can't say enough good things about their staff. They are very dedicated and work very hard to improve the situation of the children and families by working through the sadness so many of their families are dealing with. They have made a huge difference in many lives. God Bless them for all they do!

The company I work for has long running ties with this charity, and I have had the priveledge in helping this fantastic organization as a volunteer. The charity is a light in an unfortunately dark world for many children who have experienced difficult times in their lives. Family and children first has many success stories with how they have helped out children who have experienced abuse, neglect and violence. It is great to know that such organizations exist to help less fortunate individuals to have a meaningful life.

F&CP is the most amazing charity! My office has partnered with them for several years (among other charities) at the holidays, and the response for them is always great. The work that they do in the community is invaluable. Through our work with them, I feel like we have created a greater awareness of the need to serve others among our employees-- not just with them, but in general.

Through volunteerism I have witnessed the exceptional loyality and hard laborous work that is involved in going the extra mile to provide for others. Children are silent and do not have a political voice and budget cuts take away many "fun things." I have seen people in this agency work to create an income to replish some of these "fun things" to the children, through their hard work. A smile and a gleeming eye from a child is a sign of hope and love. May the smiles and love continue as you provide special moments for special children year after year.
