I don't even remember how I get involved with this organization but I am glad I did. It's been wonderful to see how they can impact many people's life in a very positive and life-changing way. They are very transparent about how they are distributing the funds. I have met several board members on different occasions. All of them seemed to be very compassionate, caring, responsible and accessible. They must all be very proud to be able to serve their communities. I am grateful for their presence because they gave me a chance to help other people that I didn't even know they needed help in the first place. I moved to somewhere else but still feel attached, and very pleased to see them grow each and every day. Their efforts are not going unnoticed.
Radiant Hands is such a wonderful asset for the North Florida Community! Recently, a single working mom with two children called with with her voice breaking, saying that she had spent most of Monday using her precious cell phone minutes but still could not reach a local agency to help with her very overdue utility bill. I faxed a request to Radiant Hands and within the day received a reply that her bill had been paid. When I told mom, she said that she wanted to meet these wonderful people, as she was so grateful. This is typical of the response that I get from clients who are so relieved from the immense stress of a looming eviction or utility shutdown. Radiant Hands is also unique that they help with test payments so that clients can better their circumstances and obtain their professional license or their GED. I am immensely thankful that we have such a caring, nonjudgmental agency available to us. Doris Harvey, LCSW, Children's Medical Services
