I have been volunteering at Resource Inc. in family group, celebrating families program and the child development area for the last 2 years. I have seen first hand the positive impact these programs have on families. Alot of the clients are single women with children trying to make a better life for themselves and the lives of their children. Resource, Inc. provides programs, training and encouragement to help them acheive their goals and independence. I enjoy the weekly interaction with the kids and getting to know them individually. My volunteer experience has been rewarding for me as an individual.

Resource, Inc is a breath of fresh air in my life. Every event that I've attended has lifted my spirits and left me with a renewed admiration for the work they do. Resource lifts people whose lives have dragged them down. It gives them an opportunity to become contributors, partners in the common good. I don't know of a more devoted, efficient, forward-looking organization.

I have had so many friends I've been able to refer to Resource: a teenager I was tutoring who dropped out of school, a older woman who lost her job, a man needing chemical dependy counseling and housing, a friend with mental and physical health issues. They've all gotten respectful help. I feel lucky to know about Resource.
