As a friend of the Director & her husband, I am pleased to endorse First Glance and their ministry. FG's commitment to a high level of quality in ministry has positioned them as a regional leader that other organizations seek to model.

I am a volunteer who cleaned the facility once a week for the past couple of years. I am amazed at the committment of all the leaders and staff. They spend a great deal of effort to instill positive values, help build friendships,and teach respect for the community as well as themselves. It is a safe and enjoyable place for teens to go and learn living skills.

Help to change the lives of many more teens and bring positive change to the whole community.

My experience has been of one looking in from the outside as I'm not directly involved in the organization; I clean for them. However, I've seen the commitment the leaders have for these kids to the point of some actually quitting their paid jobs and working for "peanuts" or nothing at all. The leaders are trying to make a difference in the kids" lives. One criticism I have is that they need to stress to the kids that things do not come easy; go easy on things that aren't theirs personally. I'm referring to the furniture they provide the kids with in the meetingplace; it gets beat up pretty bad at times. But I guess we all can be like that!

First Glance leaders not only invest their time but their very lives and here's how! Some leaders have moved into the community,some have given up good paying jobs to work for very little,some have taken students into their homes,some are awakened in the night by phone calls and urgent needs,some find jobs for the students,but all share God's love throughout the program.It is making a difference in the students,their families,and the community.I am privileged to be a part of it.
