Good people to work with with, friendly, and caring people. Everyone made sure you were happy and taking care of. Had a lot of respect for those they were helping and to those that helped them.

I had been in search of a non-profit organization to volunteer my spare time to. Fortunately, through work connections, I was able to learn about the Baldwin Center. However, listening to a description of it doesn't do justice to what it feels like when you actually go see it and help. That's when you truly understand the meaning and can't help but want to join in the effort to feed, clothe, and empower people. The Baldwin Center is unique in that it not only helps those in need immediately, but is trying to help the youth avoid the notion that their current condition is the only situation they are capable of in the future. Not every non-profit out there provides a free meal, and offers tutoring and after school activities to the youth. How many non-profits are going "GREEN" and teaching gardening skills? How many non-profits have a play room for the kids and teach arts and crafts? Many people would stop at doing any one of these, yet the Baldwin Center is attempting to empower people who feel that they have absolutely nothing left with the skills and the tools to help them change their current situation. The staff that works at the Baldwin Center explains it best. When they give you a tour, they don't tell you where they need help or suggest what you can donate. They walk you around, describe what their goals are, and tell you to keep an open mind and listen to your heart. It's your heart that will tell you what difference you can make. After spending just a few minutes in this facility, you cannot help but humbly "hear" what you can do.

The Great!

The greatest gift you can receive is honestly when you give back and see that it makes a difference. The clients who come into the Baldwin Center need all the help we can possibly give them. I think one of the best moments I have had so far, was realizing how happy I was that some of the same clients returned the next day. In some small way, I felt that I had contributed to them surviving just another day.

I only encourage this organization to advertise and get the word out, especially outside of Pontiac. There are surrounding communities that would help.

I have watched the Baldwin Center grow to a non-profit organization that is serving the entire Pontiac community. It always amazes me when I see the extent the staff will go to to assist the clients. They have showers for the homeless, washers & dryers for clients to use. The Baldwin Center
is there for those in need, whether it’s the clothes closet, or kids after school program, or assisting the abused or finding jobs and housing, etc. The Baldwin Center has activity from early morn until dusk.

I loved helping out the Baldwin Center! It is a place that helps the city of Pontiac so much, they Feed, Clothe, Educate and Empower the community. Helping out is a very important thing in my life, I feel that I have a commitment to help out even in the smallest way possible, because at one point in our lives we have all needed someone's help and expected someone to be there for us. Helping the Baldwin Center just made me feel good, that my small contribution will help hundreds of families. :)

The Baldwin Center is a wonderful resource in Pontiac, Michigan offering hope to those who need a little help. It is a place that welcomes people who need a warm meal, a warm coat, or a warm smile. Through the educational programs adults are earning their GED and children are beginning their education with added support from teachers at the center.

Have been donating to this center for years - always very professional and friendly. Always willing to tell you what the center is about, how you can help, where their greatest needs are, and up to date statistics about how they are making the community better. Great teaching experience for the kids. Baldwin staff was always willing to help unload our vehicles and show us how we were making a difference too. Baldwin made us feel very welcome, every time.

The Baldwin Center staffs are truly a dedicated group of indiviguals who are determined day in & day out to feed, clothe & empower the homeless who arrive at their door on any given day. Their care & concern is felt by their clients & volunteers alike! I once heard through a very casual conversation of a need for new socks simply so their clients would have a clean pair to put on their feet after they'd showered. How APPRECIATIVE & PLEASED were the clients & stafffs to have recieved SOCKS, yes SOCKS!!! (Little things CAN make a BIG difference! I LOVE SERVING WITH THEIR TEAM AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY!!! : ) THANK YOU, BALDWIN CENTER!!!

The Great!
