Reviews for Ethels Tree Of Life Inc

Rating: 4 stars  

Ive been on and off with Ethel's Tree of Life since 2009. I started with the summer work program because my daughter is disabled. It has opened my eyes to help me with my daughters disability and to help me be a better person. Ive enjoyed my time with Ethels Tree of Life and will continue to help out as much as I can. ETL is a great cause and Linda(the director) works well with the children bringing them to learn life skills to help them transition into adult life. I just hope that when my daughter comes of age that she too can become an ETL student.

ETL has helped us to understand how much our granddaughter is able to fit in wityh her peers and overcome her anger with social skills and lots of understnading. She ahs been on a train ride and couldn't stop talking about her day. She has learned to overcome most valid fears. Linda has done such a great job with all of youth in the years she has given her life and time to.

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

Learning our granddaughter's needs and seeing her improve.

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

Continue the way things are currently going.

Ethel's Tree of Life students achieve amazing things! One achievement might be going on a trip for the very first time without a family member or support person, another might be being brave enough to take the train into Boston alone for the first time. Other achievements might include becoming aware of opportunities to give of oneself in one's community, understanding life long learning opportunities, and, how to build on one's abilities. Developing an "I Can" attitude may be the biggest achievement of all!

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

Seeing students gain self confidence, connect with community, and, put skills learned to work in everyday life.

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

Make it bigger!

Ethel's Tree of Life was founded due to a need in our geographic area for transition training in life and work skills for a very vulnerable population of youths and young adults. Since 2003 ETL has been serving Seacoast New Hampshire and Southern York County Maine with activities, opportunities, and, adventures that help to build the skills that will be needed in adult life.

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

Seeing students gain skills that enhance their lives.

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

Have an office in every town served by ETL.

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

Seeing students grow.

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

Exceptional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Have a permanent home with transitional housing.

Ways to make it better...

Sufficient funding was available.

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

steady funding

One thing I'd also say is that...

ETL so appreciates all of the community support it has received!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
