This organization is all about having Angels on earth. First Chance is right there to come in and help in any way they can. These volunteers don't think twice when children are in need. Whatever the need, they try and help with a yes! One of my families was in need and this organization within 24 hours was there to help, support and provide, giving a single father of 4 the extra strength needed to push and push through. Thank you First Chance Foundation for being the light tha shines brightly in so many lives.
WOW! What can we say to that, but WOW! Serving those in need is a gift we are given. Some may see it as work, but we believe God works through us to reach those He needs helped. So while we don't see ourselves as angels, instead servants, we are glad to know that His light is shining through! <3
The First Chance Foundation is professional and compassionate. The are generous with their resources and take their position as a leading Foundation very seriously. They change lives and truly impact the community.
We are glad that our passion is truly seen by those we serve!
My experience with First Chance is two-fold. I have participated in one of their activities as a volunteer--making fun fleece winter hats for the kids who need them. And now, as a new foster parent, I have been a recipient of their kind works when Heather showed up at my home with a First Chance Care Package for our new foster child! First Chance is such a true blessing for individuals and organizations who are working to help children in need. The gifts of love, support, time, and resources that First Chance provides for children and the organizations who serve them are generous and unconditional. For First Chance, Heather, and Clint, the children are really all that matter...fulfilling their needs...even down to the smallest of details like socks or hair bows. First Chance is truly an outstanding organization with a heart of gold.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Never say never ... right? Who would've have ever thought that a volunteer of ours would become a recipient? We didn't, but we are so glad you did and that we are able to help. Thank you for your kind words! We look forward to working with you again!(through both assistance and volunteering)
