I have been volunteering with the CDA for 2 years now and it is truly a privilege to work with such dedicated staff.
Each person you encounter within the organization has such a passion toward helping children succeed, it's contagious!

THe North FUlton Child Development Association is, in my view, a unique and highly effective organization. It addresses , in a holistic fashion, the problem of high quality, affordable child care for the working poor, as well as supprt for the entire family unit to help break the cycle of welfare, poor performance in schools, lack of basic english language skills, and so forth. It incents parents to take advantage of and accountability for building skills for themselves as well as their children. I am so proud of the measurable results that I have seen out of this organization over the 12 years that I have either served on the board of trustees or as a key supprter . This is a place where you can be certain that your time, talent, and donations make both an immediate AND a sustainable, long term positie impact in the quality of life, education, and futures of so many children and their families in our hometown.

I began volunteering with CDA about 3 years ago as a part of Leadership Sandy Springs. CDA continually shows that they are committed to providing exceptional education for the children in their programs and support for the parents as well. CDA provides such great early childhood development for their students. Great organization!

The CDA provides an outstanding educational environment for pre-school age children, giving them a great start as they enter Elementary School. Not only does CDA ensure that the children are ready to begin school on a level playing field, they also provide financial assistance so that parents are able to afford to have their children attend the Child Development Association. Although the educational program is outstanding and deserves applause, what CDA does for families is equally important. It provides a safe environment for the children where they receive nutritious meals, learn social skills as well as academic skills, and gives struggling families who are working hard to provide for their children peace of mind while they work, knowing their children are exceptionally well-cared for.

I volunteered a couple of times to help in painting the interior of the building and doing some clean-up work on the outside. It is a very worthwhile organization with an excellent staff and professional and dedicated leadership.

I have been a volunteer with the CDA for over 5 years. I have volunteered at a lot of organizations over three decades and the North Fulton Child Development Association is the one I continue to give an increasing amount of my time. The organization leverages it's resources (volunteer time, donations, grants, teachers, etc.) to deliver exceptional early childhood education to a population that could not afford it otherwise and has to a population with the greatest need. Enhancing the lives of these young children can redirect the lives of generations. Thanks to the CDA parents can work full-time jobs and raise the standard of living for their families without public assistance. These parents are so devoted to the education of their child they typically spend up to 20% of their income on childcare and purchase books at bookfares for their children to have reading material at home. The CDA has fostered this commitment to education and changes lives everyday.

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

Expand it to other areas to give more children the opportunity for quality early childhood education.
