What an impressive organization! Between the events, opportunities, programming and marketing, I am constantly amazed at what they are able to accomplish. Great work!
JOY for our Youth, to me, is exceptional on two levels. First of all, the sheer amount of projects that they undertake is impressive. I only know of a few of them as I have friends who are volunteers for them, but they include supplying inner-city youth with their basic school supplies at a time of year that other kids are happily purchasing them. This is a lifesaver and a face saver for these kids! They take kids into summer camp and provide programs throughout the year. But I'm more impressed with the way they built their organization from a fiscal perspective: They run about as good as any high level mid sized for profit business, but use their earnings to sustain their core charitable activities. With the abundance of non-profits all clamoring for the same donation base, it is refreshing to see an organization that looks to earn profits from a sustainable business model, keep overhead extremely low, and minimize their dependence on donations to a very quantifiable and achievable goal.
I have seen personally the extent this organization is willing to go for even one child's welfare. The care they show replenishes my hope for humanity.
Excellent follow through with customer service and going the extra mile to make their customers happy.
This is an organization that understands the key role that mentoring plays in countering the difficulties kids meet growing up. Kids are one of the most vulnerable sectors and it's our duty to protect them and offer them the safest, most nurturing environment possible. That is what this organization does: it offers warmth and support to kids at risk. I've seen the results.
Donated my old car to Them. I'm glad I was Able To Help THIS Cause As Children's Education Is Something I Try To support. Kars4kids also was very accommodating and helpful with working around my schedule and arranged a weekend pickup. Highly recommend!
