Every community should have a First Glance ministry. First Glance is a great ministry that connects with kids and meets them right where they are at.

First Glance is an outstanding center. It a has been a great place for kids to have fun and grow in a solid, safe environment. The staff are a group of dedicated individuals who have a heart for kids in need. My experience has been nothing but top notch. I can't think of a place more deserving of this award.

I don't think it is easy to work with teens and it would be even harder for those in challenging situations. I think it is a testament to the character of the staff that this is such a successful program. Kudos to them

Change the lives of well deserving kids who only need a chance as well as the betterment of an entire community

I have been a supporter of First Glance from the moment it began over 5 years ago! I cannot say enough about its director, Noelle Beck & her husband Tim. Their incredible vision, passion and hard work as well as the tremendous support of so many over the years has made First Glance what it is today. Because of this organization kids are discovering love instead of condemnation, hope instead of despair. They are finding safe places to live and work instead of the street or the jail cell.

First Glance is supported by our church, located just down the street. First Glance is an outlet to love teens in our community. I am continually encouraged by the stories of changed lives of the students First Glance serves, from teens recommitting to abstinence to forming relationships in a safe environment. The most unique thing First Glance offers is loving teens and bringing them to Christ through non-threatening outlets. It has not only affected and kept literally hundreds of kids off the streets in our community, but it has, in turn, been a beacon of light for the entire community.

The Great!

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

interacting with youth at church, who were invited and felt welcomed from the staff at First Glance.

I have been a long time financial supporter of First Glance and I can honestly say I can't think of a better place for my money. To hear the stories of lives being changed in Kenmore is amazing to me. The impact First Glance has on these teens and the community in general is like that of the apostles when they set out to share the good news. It's so encouraging to me to be a part of this organizatoin and to know that we are impacting lives for the Kingdom of God.

really change the world. First Glance has already done so much with the little they have. If they had no boundaries, nothing holding them back, that ministry would spread across the entire state of Ohio, changing lives, showing kids they are loved.

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.

First Glance is run by a stellar group of folks that really care about the people that they're in community with. Noelle and Tim, and the leadership team that they've assembled, model what it means to live into people and not just do things for them. They're heart, vision, and passion are all exemplary.

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

make such a huge difference in the community that they're reaching. They have great vision for how to practically & effectively reach out to students and proven methods for doing so. The facility expansions they're working on will aid this all the more.
