Reviews for Family Health & Support Network, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the pleasure of working with Director Sandra Austin multiple times. She love children and desire to help foster children and children in the desert region by offering them the tools to build confidence and life skills for a successful future. Family Health and Support Network goes beyond the call of duty for not only the hundreds of children but the community at whole.

I had the opportunity to work with Family Health & Support Network as a volunteer and it was an amazing unforgettable experience. I was blown away by the organizations professionalism and overall care for the youth and families. Having worked with multiple non profit organizations in California and Nevada areas, this organization is by far the best. The hardwork and dedication they put in to the organization is undeniable. Working closely with the youth building a personal relationship and educating them in all aspects of life. It was a good feeling to be around such motivated youth on the trip to Washington D.C where we visited Historical Monuments, zip lined through national parks, experienced educational tours and gave the youth a glimpse into their future by touring Howard University. This organization helps our youth to see their future and to give them a reason to overcome their battles and struggles. It gives our future hope. I am happy to be have had such a great experience. I look forward to continuing to work with this non profit and see the success of the programs grow each year!

Family Health & Support Network, Inc ihas wondeful programs that help many high risk children in foster care as well as underserved children and families. The things they teach and instill in these childen will help mold them into highly ambitious members of the community. The parenting classes that they offer are amazing, they help parents better their parenting skills which betters the relationship between the patents and children. I can tell Family Health & Support Network, Inc is really about family the personal growth of our youth and our community.

Family Health and Support provides wonderful support to a lot of families and children who emancipate from the child welfare system. I loved working for them and recommend others to consider them for employment.

When we apllied to the agency for services, they were able to provide us with all the information we requested and they assisted us professionally and we're down to earth. I would recommend them to anyone willing to care for children in need.

This organization is changing lives in a positive and productive way. As a single mom, I needed a support system and guidance. My 12 year old son had the privilege of attending their nine month Rites of Passage program and learned valuable character building skills that will help him in his journey through life. I was blessed to be a participant in their amazing Parenting Classes. Every family can benefit from the programs that they offer and I commend them for their professional training and mentorship under the leadership of such an amazing Director, Sandra Austin. This organization deserves the highest praise and honor for their hard work and dedication shown throughout the Coachella Valley communities. Thank you for the impact that you have made in our lives. (Tre' s mom)
