Rating: 5 stars  

I believe this organization has opened my eyes and realized how important it is to help our community in every way we can. I had a wonderful time with my group on working on computer to help the Seniors have computer to use and learn how to use them . iris helped us have a place for us to do our service learning and making us feel important for the community . I am glad I got to help others and our community.

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

it is a great organization just the way it is . I wouldn't make any changes.

Community Improvement Organization truly stands tall next to their name. They definitely open their arms and welcome anyone in need, as well as go out of their way to reach out to those in need. I had a FANTASTIC time working with the organization helping to organize baskets of foods to be sent out to homes with financial needs during the week of Thanksgiving. I was more than delighted to give a hand and truly appreciated what this organization does; going above and beyond to help our community, from creating baskets to remodeling homes; they do it all. My experience was great and will definitely recommend this nonprofit to everyone.

I had a great experience with CIO. I was able to see newer horizons on how the community can be improved and recognized. With the friendly and easy to reach members, the project went great. We felt supported one hundred percent of the time.

you are surrounded in an atmosphere of just people who care and want to help the community and its fun anyway. after a while you learn to just have a smile on your face because you are helping those in need and not just pleasuring yourself. the president is really cool and you learn a lot from those who are experienced. i have done community service but service learning is different from it. you learn things about yourself and who you want to be. so i highly recommend you try it out sometime because it changed my life, im positive you can change someone else's life while your at it.

I had a phenomenal experience helping out the community with CIO. This non profit agency is really interested in helping the community and they do a very good job at it. I would recommend this organization to anyone who wishes to lend a helping hand to help the community or to anyone who is simply seeking community service hours.
