The work performed at the RHC was the reason I began turning over the proceeds from the baked items sold at the Camellia City Farmers Market each Saturday. Trudy was providing direct and immediately useful support to those in need. Her passion for this work is the model needed in this community.

Yes. Emphatically, yes.

Working on a very limited source of income necessarily demands change involving charitable giving solicitations.

I think that RHC is an unique ministry in that it meet the needs of all types of peole. It is a practical ministry that help meet the needs of people hurting and in need. Giving them tools to become working people and able to provide for themselves eventually. The most important aspect of this ministry is meeting the needs of the whole person (body, mind and spirit)

A few years ago when I was unemployed, I had the opportunity to attend Renewed Hope Center's Employment classes. The teachers were very knowledgeable and helpful. We worked on writing resumes' and learned techniques to feel confident in an interview. Trudy was always very prepared for class and had lots of resources to help us explore the employment possibilities in our community. The Center was always a welcome place to go to work on my resume or attend a class. It was a wonderful experience and I felt very blessed to be a part of such a well developed, organized program. I have been employed now for 18 months in a job that has great benefits, pays well and has lots of room for advancement. I've received two merit increases since I began working. Attending the classes at Renewed Hope Center gave me the confidence I needed to land a rewarding job and feel good about myself once again.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have it advertised all over the community so more people would know about it and reap the rewards from it like I have.

As a Mental Health Professional, I often encouter individuals, couples, and families in need of counseling and various other types of support services, but are unable to afford to pay for these services.

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

When I refer these people to Renewed Hope Center, they are welcomed graciously. They are provided with services that enable them to deal with their current challenges, find solutions, and move forward in their lives. This is always provided on a "sliding fee scale." In other words, most of the clients pay little or nothing for the help they receive at RHC.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Renewed Hope Center- what a wonderful asset to our community!

I enjoyed my time as a full time volunteer for RHC. It was a pleasure working with Trudy, the director and helping to teach job skill classes. The material was comprehensive and people received practical instruction to improve their resumes , interview skills and how to be an asset to their employer. The experience was rewarding.

As a volunteer, I saw the direct results in those who completed the course.

I would make no changes.
