The Depot is a wonderful place for the youth of our community to get together with friends, attend events and do community service for the town. The Kiwanis Club of Darien has worked with the youth of The Depot for the past several years in community service projects. The youth have been very helpful to us and we have helped support their projects. Working with the students and the staff at the Depot has been very rewarding. Keep up the good work for our local youth!

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

working directly with some of the students with The Kiwanis Club's fundraising projects. It is great to teach the students about giving back to their community!

both my children have attended the Depot thru their teen years and always feel that they can go there and have their "own space". Janice is amazing and caring and does a wonderful job with the kids. My son went there and my daughter helps out there alot and has had many memorable experiences. I am so glad she has a place to go that is safe and comfortable for her.

my children's involvement there.

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

not change a thing.

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

Its a safe place for my children to go. My daughter has volunteered alot thru The Depot

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

so caring and dedicated

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

help so many more organizations.

Ways to make it better...

My experiences with Janice the Director have never been anything but amazing. She is so dedicated to the kids that are there.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Could always use more funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

My daughter and son always adored Janice. She's such a great person.

I went to the Depot all the time when I was in high school in Darien. Weather I was performing there, attending someone else's performance, or just partying with the theater group, the Depot was always there for us.

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

working with Janice, the program director. Such a servant to her community and an infinitely sincere person. She will help make anything happen.

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

Expand. With funding, the Depot could build a larger part of the building and hold dances, concerts, etc. It would be even more of a draw for the middle school / high school community of the town.
