This organization, organized originally in the 1970's (I believe), has grown into an efficient non-profit. This is my favorite group to work with because it DIRECTLY helps children and families that have no where else to go. The response is quick and they are there 24/7. They have helped many from falling through the cracks. I personally have experience with three teenagers that were able to take charge of their lives and are much happier. They have monthly, realistic goals and have high percentage of obtaining those goals. I have been a volunteer for over 15 years, and this is the organization I am most passionate about.
