First Glance is a great place for kids to hang out, have fun, and learn in a safe environment. I live in Kenmore and have seen the effect First Glance has had on the community and how it meets the needs of kids. Teen Moms helps young mothers learn how to care for their child (children). They learn how to nurture and teach their young children. The volunteers are dedicated to influencing these young lives in many positive ways.

I have served either on the board or as a volunteer leader for the past 6 years. Great opportunity to see lives of young people changed for the better over that time. Some of the greatest, kindest, most passionate people I know are involved in this ministry. I love what this ministry stands for.

First Glance is an amazing place. In a day when we have "throw away" youth and a death culture, First Glance is making a difference. They are meeting a need that the local churches cannot because they meet the youth when they are. The "difference" that is made in one life at a time will be measured in eternity.

The Great!

It's often said "ACTION speaks louder than words". And, if you want action, First Glance is the place to be. As a former resident of Kenmore, FG is a lifetime dream & prayer of my mother. Great place, great staff, great volunteers, great fun leads to changed lives!! FG is making an impact in Kenmore!!

The Great!

As a community organizer for other service organizations in the Kenmore community I have had the joy of working with First Glance students and volunteers since its inception nine years ago. It has been wonderful watching the organization grow and to see the benefit reaped by the students and the entire community. First Glance exemplifies what a nonprofit should be. It is unsurpased in the quality of its volunteers and its committment to the youth in this community. They have found creative ways to reach out and to postively influence the students. I feel blessed that I have recently been able to take a more active role in helping First Glance grow.

The Great!

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

The students from First Glance have served as the main body of volunteers for a series of yearly community events. Acting as hosts, craft aides, costumed characters, and set up and clean up crew.

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

seeing the tremendous impact that they have had on "at risk" kids.

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

extremely dedicated, selfless, and talented people giving freely of their time, talent, and self.

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

reach a greater number of "at risk" with additional and more extensive programs.
