CAIN always treats clients with dignity and respect. Volunteers are given training to see that everything runs smoothly at CAIN.
I was a volunteer to help people sing up for the affordable care Act and CAIN was Helpful in supplying space for me to talk to people.
I volunteered at CAIN with my youngest daughter when she was in high school and needed service hours. After she graduated, other things got in the way and I stopped volunteering there. About 2 years ago I started going again, and am so glad I did! It is an extremely well run organization, with very dedicated staff and volunteers. It is clean and the process by which the "clients" use the pantry is very efficient. Each time I'm there, I see and hear the appreciation from the people served by CAIN. And to be perfectly honest, I feel good when I leave, knowing that I've helped just a little.
CAIN is a wonderful, important organization in the Northside community. Everyone at CAIN goes out of their way to make sure they can help the guests as much as they can. Not only are the guests treated well, but it is a great place to volunteer. I had an incredible experience volunteering there this summer and am looking forward to continuing my volunteer work.
I have only been around CAIN for 1.5 months and I'm impressed! They just welcome whoever walks through the door! Even if there are tons of people and things seem crazy...they're always smiling and serving. The guests come first each day at CAIN! There are times where we may not be able to directly help a guest, but we have other resources that can! CAIN is truly a neighborhood ministry desiring to help each guest to reach their potential in life! It's a blessing to be apart of!
CAIN has become a second home to me! I love the relationships that are able to develop between the volunteers and the guests. It's very authentic, and welcoming! As a student I enjoyed working here because it gave me something to look forward to everyday I came to work. This place is amazing!!
No one compares to CAIN when it comes to true love and ministry. They treat their guests and their volunteers as family, and call us to work together in love and respect. No one is unimportant or a "little person" at CAIN. You can always get a big hug from Priscilla, a joke from Darrell, or a smile from Lynne. CAIN ROCKS!
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.
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.
