Reviews for First Fruit Ministries
I was introduced to First Fruit Ministries over 5 years ago. I had worked with typical "rescue mission" organizations before and this is what I was expecting the first time I visited First Fruit Ministries. Immediately after I set foot the campus I could tell that this was different than anything I had experienced before: It was clean, well lit, well staffed and full of happy positive people! As my relationship with First Fruit developed from a volunteer, to a donor and finally to a board member I have become increasingly impressed with the service that they provide with their minimal budget. The bottom line is that they are amazingly effective at taking people off of the street and transforming their lives so that they can re-enter society as helpful and productive members. Their success rate is overwhelmingly higher than our state's average and I attribute this to the love of God that is shown to each and every client who walks through the door.
Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
