I volunteer at CAIN because whatever your job you take time to talk to the people coming for help and make them feel welcome and respected.

As a former volunteer at CAIN, I can attest to the critically important work they do. Not only do they provide food to those in need, but also assistance in how to get utility bills paid, or where to find housing, and maybe just as importantly, a sympathetic ear to listen. These people are vital to this community, and Cincinnati in general.

I have been volunteering at CAIN every Tuesday for three years. Each time I step through their doors, I am gratified to realize that such a place exists...where volunteers, both young and old, from all walks of life, are willing to give of their time or lend an ear to others who have fallen on hard times. There's a satisfaction and joy in knowing that in some small way we do make a difference. It's the right thing to do.

I volunteer at CAIN every week and have seen firsthand what this organization means to folks in need. Some we see every month, some just come once or twice and we don't see them again. But the important thing is that CAIN is there for them and they can count on a place to go for not only food and household provisions, but an ear to listen and understanding hearts ready to do whatever is needed to make their lives a little easier.

After interning here all summer, I've really learned a lot about the inner workings of a nonprofit. The way volunteers and guests are treated is unmatched in my experience with food pantries. The respect given to guests who might be bearing shame or guilt by using this resource is refreshing and inspiring. As a whole, the leadership at CAIN is full of respect, compassion and a deep love for the Northside community.

CAIN makes an amazing difference in the lives of many people, not just guests who come there for services, but volunteers from churches, school groups, and the neighborhood. CAIN is an outstanding example and advocate for the Beloved Community.

I've watched CAIN grow in it's impact on the people it serves, the churches who provide the backbone of support for CAIN and the community over the past 15 years. CAIN's success has come from the can-do, God-trusting, people-loving character of its leadership.

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

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

watching it grow almost every year and respond faithfully and creatively to every new challenge and need.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

putting real hands and feet to the love of Christ.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to spend personally volunteering.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

breaking through the barrier from simply providing emergency assistance to empowering people to improve their life situations.

I learned about CAIN when I attended a church in Northside. I have been a volunteer and a donor there. I admire their contribution to the community by helping those in need. I support their mission and feel that CAIN is a vital outreach. As quoted in scripture, "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms', CAIN's mercy and love towards the people that they service exemplifies God's beauty by touching one hand and one life at a time. Praises to the leadership, the staff and the volunteers that continue to make it happen at CAIN.

I believe the organization is doing a great job, and I do not know of any changes needed at this time.

CAIN, above all, respects and honors the guests who need their services. Everyone is treated with dignity and friendliness and every effort is made to meet the needs of the people who ask for assistance. "Lucy" came into the food pantry quietly, shyly and obviously embarrassed that she "had to ask for help". By the time she left she was showing pictures of her 2 grandkids and smiling. The mission of CAIN embraces the concept of loving our neighbor and that is demonstrated everyday at CAIN.

Clients are treated with great respect and every effort is made to help with needs - not only the "basics" but individual needs that we all take for granted - a pair of warm slippers, an umbrella or a knit hat for winter.

I have been a volunteer and a donor, and always my experience at CAIN has been wonderful! Volunteering opportunities are well organized and everyone has fun. As a donor, I get frequent, but informative and creative, email updates. I always know what's going on at CAIN, and feel like they are making a real difference to many, many people.

Thant's my review! Go CAIN!

CAIN has been an important part of my life since 2005. The staff are incredibly understanding, supportive and dedicated, but equally important are the hardworking volunteers. CAIN is an organization that welcomes anyone who needs a little extra help with open arms. One of the biggest testaments to how wonderful CAIN is the amount of volunteers who benefited from the support of CAIN.

Ways to make it better...

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

Provide even more produce and a larger selection of personal hygiene products, but that is more of a general wish for a better economy and more generous donors.

We have volunteered in the past. Now we are only able to help with donations. All of the staff at Cain are top notch. They are always friendly and so grateful for any donations. But most importantly, they care deeply about their clients. Cain runs very smoothly with dedicated employees and volunteers. Cindy and Denny Bosse
