SECOM is a beautiful place. Very rarely does one see a community of like minded people as passionate as they are about doing God's will. One of the directors explained his job to me as "Making Friends". And that's what they do. Despite all of the excellent work they strive for every day, you will not find a more humble set of staff and volunteers.
Nor will you find a group that uses their money more wisely. As a volunteer I saw first hand how very carefully they utilized every resource available to them- there is a strong understanding that the little money they have is to feed the hungry in West Michigan.
I look forward to working with them again soon, and have made this my Nonprofit of choice.
