Having working for this private,non-profit agency since 1997, I have been in a position to see many hundreds of people that have been helped with their barriers that keep them in a homeless vicious circle. Compassion and dignity are traits that underpin the advocacy for individuals that are struggling with things such as mental health issues, substance dependence, mental or physical disabilities, economic issues, lack of education or opportunities, and/or lack of life skills. Agency administrative costs are very low and the staff works very hard. There is a large base of community volunteerism that helps make it possible.

The Food and Care Coalition does so much for the clients it serves. I am amazed at the leadership of this organization and their vision to make a difference in people's lives. They truly care about people. I have had the privilege of talking with some of the clients through a research project and have had some of my students volunteer in the organization. In addition, a representative from their organization always guest lectures in one of my courses providing students with valuable knowledge about this community organization. I greatly appreciate my association with them and look forward to our continued association in the future!

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

seeing the leadership quality and amazing services they provide community members.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

advocate for more grant funding to expand the services and cover the costs of other needs this organization has.

I am very impressed by the facility, the volunteers, and the system that the Food and Care Coalition has maintained. The clients are always so appreciative and cooperative. I always feel good when I get to spend time working with these good people who just need a little extra help during a hard time of life.

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

caring for the people who need help with maintaining oral health, are in pain, or need to improve their smiles to be able to find confidence in their lives.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get more equipment so that the patients can get the best care possible.
