The Hearts to Nourish Hope program without question provides a proactive approach to exposing the youth of Clayton County to work environments that they might not otherwise obtain. Gloria's Gifts Galore has had the pleasure of being a client of their program for the past two years now. The opportunity to provide work experiences and mentoring in a retail setting has been very rewarding to us. It's not every day that a cash strapped family owned business is given the opportunity to provide a job to two or more of our youth without suffering financial hardship in the process. The youth(s) that have worked for us have also been impressed with the workings and opportunities available to them should they choose to pursue a career in retail. We talk lot about the negative aspects of our youth but there is also the untapped positive that they possess that the Heart to Nourish Hope have provided to the community. Such programs should be supported to the fullest and allowed to not only continue but to flourish in our communities. If we do nothing else with our monies it should be to sponsor and provide financial support for this program (Hearts to Nourish Hope, Inc.). Hearts to Nourish provides a sound investment in the future of not only Clayton County but also Georgia and America as well.

I have always been extremely impressed with how Hearts to Nourish Hope strives to open new doors to the young people in our community offering them new and exciting experiences. Not only do these young people learn new life skills through HTNH, they accomplish incredible personal growth and success in the process. This is one amazing organization and the community is most fortunate that it exists!

Hearts to Nourish Hope is an excellent non-profit organization with a rich history of doing great work in Clayton County Georgia. I have a personal experience with Hearts to Nourish Hope because I too have a non-profit organization (www.reach-teach.org). Our two organizations have collaborated on two educational workshops (College Admissions 101, Scholarship Money for College) within the last six months. We are scheduled to implent another educational workshop (ACT vs. SAT) in the month of March. Also, we are preparing to execute a Leadership Conference in the month of April. Hearts to Nourish Hope is a leader in the area because of their committment to the community. As a result, many people count on the organization for assistance on many levels. I strongly feel the organization can be strengthened if more financial support was provided. This assistance would allow Hearts to Nourish Hope to opportunity to be an even brighter beacon in the community.

I'm the founder of an non-profit organization that serves low-income families in the Metro Area. I've had the privilege to work with the hearts to Nourish Organization for the past two years and I must say it has been such a blessing to do so.

Hearts to Nourish has gone above and beyond the call of duty in serving the children and youth with summer employment that allows them to gain experiences that will enrich their lives forever. It provide local businesses with workers that help the community thrive.

The Hearts staff are outstanding in preparing the children and youth for the task of serving their community in whatever position they are placed.

I believe the number of applicants the Hearts to Nourish staff processes and places in the business community is second to none.

For all of the service Hearts to Nourish provides to the community please afford them all of the consideration possible.

The Riverdale Police Department believes in the proactive work that Hearts to Nourish Hope provides to the seeking for a positive path youth of our Community. The particular group of seekers that Hearts to Nourish Hope excels with are typically familiar with law enforcement for negative reasons.

It has always been Debbie Anglin and her staffs' approach to work proactively with organizations that can offer help and well rounded training to each of their members. They have given us the opportunity to work with their members in a positive light. An opportunity to share our desire to be a positive force in their lives and not the negative.

Beyond the opportunity to be seen as a whole i.e. enforcer and protector they have included the Riverdale Police Department in several areas of personal prevention, i.e. Haunteen Reality and Self Protection for young ladies.

The Haunteen Reality was an experience open to the public to showcase the dangers and realities that may be associated with taking drugs, drinking, distracted driving, bullying, gang activity, etc. Members of the program made up the staff that brought the experience to life for the patrons.

In combination with Debbie's expertise in the field of self protection the Riverdale Police Department has taught classes to young ladies about their safety. Areas covered include personal safety as well as vehicle and home safety.

These programs and others are key to each members self preservation. They are also key to staying on the positive path.

Hearts to Nourish Hope is continuously forward moving and evolving. Thus the choice to open a transitional home for youth males ages 18-24 is in keeping with their mission.

We, as a Community, are fortunate to have Hearts to Nourish Hope. We, as a police department, are grateful to work with this organization and its members.

It has been my expereence that Hearts goes well above and beyond the norm to help youngsters. I have seen several instances that Hearts took the time to help young individuals that were cast aside by other organizations or county/state organizations. Hearts is nothing in short of amazing.

Hearts to Nourish Hope provides a very vital service in our community. The work with young people is outstanding. They serve the underserved population. They are good stewards of the funds they receive and stretch the funds as far as they can. They are respected in the community and I know if given more funds they can extend their exceptional services to more and in these times that is exactly what is needed. Over the summer the role they play in helping young people find employment helps both the students and the employers. I employed one of the summer students and it was a great experience for our organization and the student. I cannot say enough about the value that HTNH adds to our community. They provide vital services.

Through the Summer work program, Hearts to Nourish Hope has helped many young men and women obtaining employment within the community. This program has enabled them to learn professional skills, life skills as well as team leader/group skills that will help them in the real world. My organization has also benefitted from the program by forming a partnership with Hearts to Nourish Hope. I hope they receive the 5000 reward.
