CAIN helps people through their services. They smile, talk to people, and give good advice. CAIN helped me with food, my energy bill, furniture, and with my needs.
Being around good people in a good environment has a positive effect in my life.
CAIN helps out. The people here are good, friendly people. When I came here, CAIN gave me food, and gave me a microwave at Christmas-time.
If you need help and you live in Northside, you should come to CAIN because they will help you in any way they can.
CAIN has helped us so much. I have six kids and I'm a single mom. My kids' dad died last year, so it's just me and the kids. CAIN has helped by giving us plenty of food. It's way different than other pantries.
CAIN cares. It's not just a service; they care. They are friends of whoever they help. They learn about you, ask questions, and talk to you.
When I come to CAIN, I feel like I'm going to my mom's house to shop in her fridge. CAIN made a huge difference in my life. Even though I come here once a month, it lasts. I don't have to worry about feeding my kids.
Come to CAIN!
CAIN is a great place. I would refer a friend or family member. It's a great environment for kids and family. They go the extreme to meet all your family's needs.
CAIN helped me with food when I didn't have it. They also help me with furniture vouchers, clothing, and gas and electric bills.
At CAIN, I feel at home. I feel welcomed with open arms.
CAIN is a good resource for help and food. CAIN helped feed me and my son. People at CAIN are really kind and helpful.
The staff and people here are very nice. Everyone is warm and wonderful. The cook -- kiss her and bless her hands! I learned how to cook zucchini and squash at CAIN. I never thought that I would like it, but when I tasted the ingredients at CAIN, I had to go home and make it. Now I know how to cook it. So CAIN taught me a healthy, quick dish!
If this place wasn't here, it would be horrible. Since we don't have a grocery store, CAIN provides the services that the community needs. And it's free, so it really helps out a lot. The products are always fresh. CAIN meets our needs from hygiene to food -- everything. And we leave here with a warm stomach, so if someone comes here hungry, they won't leave hungry.
I'am so grateful for Cain worker's they are awesome people . I'am always greeted with a smile , they make me feel welcome and are very helpful in my pantry choices. They care about you and never look down on you for coming there when you need help.
I've had trouble making ends meet for all of my adult life, and for eight of the nine years that I've lived in Northside, I've visited CAIN's food pantry almost every month. They've helped me stretch my grocery budget when I've had some money and helped me to stave off starvation when I haven't. I'm looking forward to visiting tomorrow morning as I write this, and that anticipated opportunity to receive free food has figured into how I planned meals this month.
The volunteers and staff are friendly and helpful and have made me feel welcome even when I've felt guilty for being a regular relying on charity. In the past few years, since the food pantry switched to a Choice Pantry and began working with the FreeStore FoodBank and Northside Farmer's Market to provide more fresh produce, I've noticed a pronounced improvement over the nutritive value of the meals I can make from the ingredients I've obtained there.
There was one instance in which CAIN enlisted me as a helper when they paid to have some renovation done and I've volunteered at times when I've been able to. I'm afraid I've allowed myself to become something of a hermit in recent years, but CAIN has kept the plight of the unemployed and poorly-paid visible by being located on Northside's main drag, Hamilton Avenue, next to the big old Presbyterian Church where community events are often held and across from the Public Library. While I remain hopeful that I'll be able to work my way back to self-sufficiency and I intend to, if I manage to achieve this accomplishment, I will owe CAIN the wherewithal to survive when I was unable to provide food for myself and an example of people who persevere in service to others with patience and kindness year after year.
They are great people at cain and very nice and helpful when i need help wit food i love going there always make you comfortable loving people
CAIN doesn’t just speak of love of God, they show it - and we all see it and feel it.
I am proud that my personal growth was inspired by CAIN, so I welcome this opportunity to share my story to hopefully motivate you to donate to CAIN – since their services are so very important to all of the community.
It is absolutely necessary that we all know as human beings that someone cares. I and many others feel that concern and compassion at CAIN. We know how these good acts are passed on. It just makes good sense to help CAIN help others. It makes for a better, safer, and friendlier community for everyone.
