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.

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 have been associated with CAIN for several years as a board member. CAIN is an amazing organization that does many great things for the Northside community. The staff and volunteers do an extraordinary job making every guest feel both welcome and appreciated. It is truly an honor to be able to serve with such a great group of people.

I have been a volunteer with CAIN over 15 years, contributing to the Christmas Secret Angels, or working in the food pantry, and recently serving on the Board of Directors. As a community "member-at-large" I have requested donations at Community Council meetings and consistently received with very generous donations and people volunteering. CAIN is immensely respected in our neighborhood, as an organization that contributes to the well-being of the entire neighborhood, not only the guests who utilize the pantry. CAIN is known as the organization in our diverse community where neighbors can directly assist and impact the wellfare of people living right here. The accomplishment this year, of CAIN organizing the use of EBT cards at the Northside Farmer's Market, supports the market overall and the farmers who bring produce to sell locally. These same vendors generously donate produce at the end of the market time, to CAIN, for the following morning at the pantry. Annually CAIN organizes a very popular neighborhood-wide garage sale, providing a map guiding shoppers to all homes/locations participating. CAIN's active presence in Northside directly connects neighbors with neighbors who might otherwise remain strangers , due to cultural or socioeconomic differences. CAIN builds community!

It has been my joy and blessing to be a part of the CAIN corp of Volunteers for the last twelve years. I have done a variety of things, including chairing the board for eight years, pantry volunteer, shopper, errand person, general support for staff and other volunteers, chaplain and many, many more. I have always been impressed by their dedication to helping all members of the community who are in need and work very hard to keep all decisions based on guest (we don't call them clients) needs. I am also impressed with the very impressive ratio of staff to volunteers. There are only three, part-time professionals, and yet they recruit, coordinate, schedule and supervise an incredible group of volunteers that often minister to over 400 families in a month.

I have served on CAINs Board and Fundraising Committee for two years as a Community Member. We have served so many "guests" that the impact is immeasurable. Especially this year, with the current economy, it is so essential to be able to provide nutrition, household essentials and especially an ear to listen and shoulder to lean on. There have been numerous examples of our "guests" getting back on their feet and returning to volunteer for CAIN to provide the same service and outreach that was provided to them. CAIN is truly a blessin to many.

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

truly empathic. They give so much more than is necessary. Our clients are treated as our guests and they feel the difference.
