Ayuda is a great organization with good programs for the community. They work diligently and tirelessly to provide assistance, guidance and support to those who seek their care. For over 31 years AYUDA has been helping citizens of South Florida - parents, children, youth, elderly, and families - that are underserved and disadvantaged. The Family Empowerment, Elderly Overtown, Parents Now, and Go Kids GO Programs have been funded for more many years by the Children’s Trust. This is a great organization to be a part of!

Ayuda is a great organization with good programs for the community. Ayuda helps their clients take control of their life and learn skills to make better decisons and slef sufficiency. It's really wonderful to see how the counselors really go above and beyond to help cients beyond their counseling program.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that I feel rewarded when a family comes to thank me for helping them improve their life a little more than when they firt entered the program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Eight months ago I came to work for Ayuda, Inc and was so impressed by the mission of the organization. Today I feel not only that Ayuda is a great place to get helped at (from children to elders) but also a comfortable working environment where all staff and clients have become one family. If I had to choose again I would certainly come to Ayuda.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

It is very touchy to see how families come with problems and leave the thirteen weeks groups feeling much better. It is really a gift.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make no changes!

I was a University student in the School of Social Work back in 1977 and was placed at AYUDA to gain experience while I was being supervised. I helped assess children with disabilities, met and counseled their parents, conducted play therapy, taught the children social skills, made community referrals to help support the family, and just learned sooo much! I was hired as a counselor and as the years progressed I became Executive Director and President of the organization. AYUDA is a great agency with great staff that goes over and above the call of duty to help and empower clients. AYUDA has conducted it's work "in the trenches", where clients cannot afford to pay for services. Clients range from infancy to frail elders and services reach throughout South Florida.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The personal growth that I have made during my relationship with the organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ensure that the Agency's donor base was larger and more consistent.
