The YMCA of Callaway County is becoming a wonderful place for everyone! They not only have terrific workout & social programs, but are also beginning a community garden and children's play area. My children and I have benefitted from the YMCA. I sure hope they are able to get the extra funding - it will be put to good use for many, many people!

My youngest son participated in the last Pumpkin Run 5K. Even though there weren't many participants, he did very well and loved it! It gave him a wonderful boost to his self-esteem. I love the fact that I can exercise even in bad weather.

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

Have it open later hours on the weekends and advertise more so people would be more aware of what is available.

United Way helps all no matter what your income level is.

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

I am self-employed. I do ok but I don't have health insurance. The Callaway County United Way offers the FamilyWize prescription drug discount program to anyone that does not have prescription drug coverage. The discounts my family receives on our prescriptions really helps.

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

None at this time.

The United Way funds many worthwhile agencies in our community.

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

Several years ago I found myself in a position where I needed to call on several United Way agencies for services. Never did I dream that I would be one of "those people". However, the services that I received helped me get back on my feet and now I am a volunteer and donor.

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

Not a thing should be changed.

I am a college student with more month than money sometimes. It's good to know that I can go to the Food Pantry if I need to and get enough food to get through the month. They don't ask any questions, and always make me feel welcome.

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

Good eats!

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

Give them more money.

I am homeless man in my mid 50's. Out of work for two years because of health. Our House, one of the CCUW agencies gives us a good, safe place to sleep, eat and shower. They have said if it weren't for the CCUW they would not have been able to open the Wiley House shelter for men and women. God Bless them for their help.

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

I was on the street, other people's couches, cars, public buildings for two years as a homeless man. I have a job now and my own room in a house because I was able to stay at the shelter for a few months, get on my feet an get myself together.

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

have some services to help people with jobs, training and transportation.
