The Real Life Center is a wonderful example of a non-profit done right. They serve the community in many capacities not limited to food and clothing donations. They also follow families to make sure that they are going to be ok. They are very good stewards of donations and have a volunteer staff that is eager and enthusiastic. In this time of economic uncertainty, it is good to know that The Real Life Center is there for families.
What an amazing place the Real Life Center is!! The Executive Director, staff, and volunteers have such amazing love for the hurting clients that come through their doors. It is an honor to serve with this organization.
I started working at the Real Life Center in 2011 as an assistant to the Executive Director. I have sense expanded my role into a Project Manager over seeing all of the IT projects at the center as well as making sure the Executive Director is kept happy and does not have to worry about Admin stuff.
This organization is one of the best that I have been involved with. They have many different ministries within the organization and are associated with a church, but do not require the people they help to be Christians. They have a clothes closet, a food pantry, a bread ministry, financial counselors, financial assistance, and even more. They also have a thrift store to help increase their budget. All of the staff and volunteers go out of their way to help, and if there is nothing they can do, they are great with referrals and very involved with other nonprofits in the community.
