Everyone was very friendly, even though the weather was bad. The center was also very busy! We were working on the greenhouse that they built to help feed the people of Pontiac. I thought the project was very cool. I would love to volunteer there again some time.

Have a little bit more organization. Although, I do not think they knew our group was coming so that could have been the issue.

I work for an organization that engaged high school students in service in the community. The students I work with have volunteered with Baldwin Center over the past 9 years. The staff at Baldwin Center care deeply about the children, families and adults that they work with on a daily basis. Our buildOn members always enjoy their time volunteering at the Baldwin Center!

I am a teacher, volunteer, and a professional with experience in this field. I work with people with disabilities and we volunteer at the Baldwin Center. I am also a clergy-person who works with congregations. I have been totally impressed with the Baldwin Center and the quality of the program provided for the community of Pontiac. The staff are so very inclusive, it is amazing to me. I love going to spend time there and be a part of a place where ALL people are valued. That is rare in this day and age. Thank you for the ministry you do Baldwin Center.

I see the way my students feel valued by what they do and I have seen them grow in their ability to give back to the community instead of being the recipients. It has been an invaluable tool for their learning.

The Baldwin Center is a wonderful place that strives to help the residents of Pontiac, respecting who they are with no questions asked.

Personally I witnessed the care, concern, and compassion that the Baldwin Center and its staff provided for the children as they embarked on a field trip. It may be years before results are seen when building into the lives of others - but then, it may be a few days.

If I was going to make any changes, somehow I would get the word out more - and through different media that will reach the up and coming generations.

The baldwin center has helped people in too many was to track. I have heard of people getting help there numerous times in the past and it has always been a feel good stroy. Now I always turn to them when I know of somebody who has clothes to donate. Making sure the clothes get to the baldwin center asures me that they will be put to good use. The only thing I think they could do more of is make sure that more people were aware of the services they offer and how easy it is to get involved.

The Baldwin Center is fabulous to work with. Volunteers are able to engage directly with the community through the soup kitchen, clothes closet and After School program. Volunteers also work in the office to help members of the community receive various resources from funding for eviction notification and utility shut off to assisting mothers to receive baby formula to engaging other people in volunteerism at the organization.

I have personally volunteered to facilitate the After School Volunteer orientation, volunteered in the After School program, volunteered in the office to assist (by pre-screening via telephone) families with eviction notifications and utility shut offs. I've also recruited other community members to volunteer and have planned national days of service projects with the Baldwin Center.

I have seen children and families receive basic needs such as food and clothes. I've seen people pass their GED test after completing the pre-GED curriculum at the Baldwin Center. I've seen community members come together to celebrate the end of a successful summer enrichment program for kids. I've seen people come together to help their community. The Baldwin Center is a place for people to get help, restore their dignity and give back.
