I work closely with Kenitra Walker, the Volunteer/Food Pantry Coordinator at the Quest Center as a pantry volunteer. She treats me and everyone who comes in the office with kindness, respect, and compassion. My working here has been a very pleasant experience.

very greatful for help from this office & Ms walker. I'm a senior lost job in April '09 and was in need of food and job. MS Walker has been very kind and generous. I have tried to call the city numbers for help, but they just say they will call you back and never do. I have no family in San Antonio, so this really helps me. Hopefully I will find work soon. Thank you so much.

I was impresed with the dedication and effort of the Volunteer Coordinator Kenitra Walker who directed the center. It is located in the community it serves. It is unfortunate that in the US these types of organizations are needed. While we were there it was clear that many people recieve needed food from this facility. The staff was diligent in coordinating the volunteers. Impressive.

I found project quest on the united way website while attempting to find a nonprofit organization for my office to volunteer. Many people focus on the larger organizations. When I researched project quest I was amazed at how much this small staff of two provides for their community; from providing food, tax assistance and even financial assistance. They are amazing. Hearing the stories of how they have helped the community from all walks of life from infants to seniors. I know I was touched. What people don't realize is how these organizations have to be prepared to be counselors as well. Some will be overjoyed while others to embarrassed to talk. My advice, to those in need, is to open up to the staff tell them what you need and I assure you the angels will provide. Life is ever-changing; if pressures have you down just wait them out. That is why these programs are made available. Great staff and my office has decided to sponsor this organization for all future volunteer efforts whether it be individually or as a team again.
