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.

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.

I found first Glance to really care about the whole child.Mind, body, but most of all Spirit.This meeting place is a safe landing place for all the kids that want to feel they belong and are loved.They aro NOT a throw-a-way item as some think.First glance takes them at face value and gives them hope.

I'm a volunteer at First Glance. First Glance is a great organization to provide a safe place for the students in the Kenmore area to hang out. The students love to talk and hang out with the leaders and their friends. Just to have somebody they can talk to and who will listen to them and make them feel loved. The leaders care about those students. First Glance creates an environment that a lot of students don't have at home. For the students there are only two important days in the week. Thursday and Friday. First Glance has several other great programs to help the students. Without First Glance Kenmore would be a different community for the youth. First Glance is a safe haven for them.

Well the thing that impresses methe most that they follow Christ's model...Meeting the needs of the people first and then taking care of their spiritual life...not attempting to make choices for the people instead..showing them the Love of Christ and merely letting them know that there is more info available to them about from where that Love comes from and how they can OWN that love for themselves and that is so AWESOME

First Glance is a group of enthusiatic, passionate & awesome individuals who give of their time (leaders & the volunteers) reaching out with their hearts and God's love, in a committment to the youth of Kenmore. The youth can come and be accepted with unconditional love & where they are in a safe non-threatening environment. Everything the leaders & volunteers do is a positive impact in training these youth to want to be better citizens, and helping them to grow to bring up their children to make a better community in Kenmore. They are making a difference in the lives of teenagers, and in the Kenmore community being changed for God's Glory. They are giving them hope & direction thru caring for each teen that comes thru the doors. The staff of volunteers are also giving them a chance to get off the streets, and also teaching them how to make better choices in their lives & the opportunities to set goals in their lives. Karen Freeman & Nicole Beck have so much contagious enthusiam and are really passionate for this ministry of changing lives for Christ!
