Lincoln is one of those special, under-stated organizations that has tremendous impact on the communities it serves. I am impressed by the staff, their expertise and the care they have in working with children and their families.

Lincoln Child Center recognizes that some of the most important relationships that we will have in our lifetimes are with family. However, some of our children have lives and relationships that are broken, stressed, or nonexistent. Lincoln Child Center helps to foster loving environments for our young people and let them know that they are special, cared for and valuable.

I have been involved with the Lincoln Child Center in Oakland Ca for the past 10 years. Through my organization we have worked with many of the LCC staff, met the children and families that they serve, and helped to raise funds year after year. We do this and I do this because I know the struggles that families face in the current environment and how so many children are abandoned, abused, and left without anyone to really care for them. LCC is the beacon of hope for many children in the SF Bay area who have experienced some type of trauma in their lives that is no fault of their own. LCC provides the care; nurturing, education, and emotional support that children and their families need to survive and eventually become good citizens even though they have experience traumatic events in their lives. The dedication of the LCC staff is unwavering and they work tirelessly through economic ups and downs because when the day is done, they are helping to secure a healthy future for the clients that they serve, as well as the communities.

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

My organization has donated holiday gifts for the children at LCC who otherwise may not have received anything at all. The joy that this brought to the children has made us continue this tradition for the past 10 years. We often receive artwork from the children. I have also prepared gourmet meals for the resident children. They are amazed at the many different cuisines that we prepare and they get to experience. I love the way they come up to us afterwards and ask how did we make a certain dish.

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

Expand the organization so that it has the capacity to take in more families and service more needs of the community
