I have been associated with many philanthropic organizations throughout my life and must say that as many organizations provide much needed assistance to the specific cause. That said, Bering Omega has stood out, as being truly committed to ensuring the maximum of each dollar raised goes to the individual needing assistance. Bering Omega raises the bar for all nonprofit and charitable organizations. BRAVO BERING OMEGA--John A. Evatz-

I have been working at Bering Omega Community Services for a year now and it has truly been an eye opening experience. I had no idea how much HIV/AIDS impacts are community still. The programs and services that the organization offers its clients really help them live their life better and manage the disease. The program managers are all so passionate about the work they do. Overall, the organization, its donors, volunteers, and supporters are truly helping us create Everyday Miracles for the clients. I highly recommend this organization.

I began my work with Bering Omega Community Services through the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. I served as a full-time volunteer, 40 hours per week for a year, at their dental clinic, Day Treatment Program, and Omega House, their residential hospice. Words cannot describe the impact that opportunity had on me. I was fortunate enough to get hired as a Front Desk Coordinator at the Dental Clinic after my volunteer year, and I have now served as the Volunteer Coordinator for just over a year.
I feel blessed and fortunate to be able to provide similar experiences to new volunteers looking to make a difference in their community. I also see the work that is done for our clients, not only by volunteers, but by our staff, and I feel fortunate that we are able to provide the services we do. Without our agency, our clients lives would be lacking, to say the least.
