A great organization for the youth in the community. Teen Moms, Dads, skateboarding and basketball is a safe environment and an alternative to the lives these teens have led. more

It has been great to see First glance grow from meeting in the small amount of space in the community center to owning a large multi-level space. The larger space has provided the students with a place to get off the streets and call their own. This has happened because of the faith of the leadership and great volunteer base. It's awesome to hear the excitement students in the community have for First Glance.

I am blessed to read the E-mails and letters regarding the students and how many of them are helped and encouraged by this ministry. I am glad to be able to be one of the donors for this ministry. Tim and Noelle are the very best leaders. The students respect and look up to them. Our family has been to many of the open houses, and Tim and Noelle have been in our home.

I got involved with First Glance thru volunteering on a construction project. While painting one Saturday, a student turned to me and said, "You need to become a leader so you can change people's lives like they have changed mine." When a 17 year girl says that you; you have no choice but to do just that, become a leader. It is so apparent that these students lives are changing because of the First Glance. The fruits of what God is doing in Kenmore thru First Glance we might never see the whole picture, but I know when I volunteer, I am changed. First Glance is the Youth Thrive award, because it is doing just that making students thrive in an culture and environment that working so hard against them.

the sense of family. Everyone is equal at First Glance. Regardless of your duty, or how long you have volunteer, everyone has the same goal and mission. To love these students and share with them God's love.

I think First Glance is probably the best thing to happen to the Kenmore area. For years the kids had nothing to do and continually got into trouble. Since it's inception, the kids have had a warm, loving place to go where they are totally accepted for who they are. The leaders are not there to babysit, but to mentor. It's a bridge between the kids and the local churches...a great set-up!

First Glance is a wonderful place for students in the Kenmore community to come as they are and be loved by leaders. The leaders give so much of themselves to show the love Christ has for each one of the students.

I have been involved with First Glance since the night they first opened. It is, over nine years later, still one of the things I most look forward to every week. The leadership of First Glance is passionate about teens and the community of Kenmore. What an outstanding organization to be involved with!

The Great!

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

the church I work with. Many of the students from First Glance have furthered their connection to Christ by being involved in our church's youth ministry.

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

The passion this organization has to be the best at what it does. I love to be around people who have no time to be lazy or stagnant in what they're doing. First Glance has NEVER been that way.

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

Passionate, committed, pretty much sold out. What better could you ask for?

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

be more stable in its long term plans, its ability to staff, and more successful in its mission over the long haul!

I love First Glance! They have a heart to serve the students and families in Kenmore through demonstrating the love of God in very practical and hands-on ways, reaching students where they are, and not just where they want them to be.This includes building an indoor skate park for them, providing clothes, counseling and baby supplies to pregnant teens, running a stop-having-sex club, and providing a safe environment with solid boundaries for students to hang out at. First Glance is also a great place to serve, helping others to reach out to a community that they wouldn't normally be around and helping others to feel a bit of God's heart for the "least of these"
