CINCINNATI WORKS INC
November 27, 2012

Cincinnati Works is a great charity! I have had a pleasure of working with them for about two years. The impact that they have on individual lives is tremendous. Their workshop gets people in poverty encouraged and excited about getting a job. It teaches how to find a job, how to interview, how to succeed once on the job - things that simply aren't taught in school. I've volunteered to do mock interviews and you can see the hope that these folks have from Cincinnati Works. Then their job placement program works closely with corporations across the area to find and match the right job. Finally, they continue to support the whole employee for the long term with other services like financial counseling, mental health counseling, job support, and much more. The best was seeing a member with a brand new apartment key around his neck that came from his hard work. This is truly teaching people how to fish. I am a volunteer and a financial supporter. ---Matt---

Please do not donate to this charity. I made the mistake of giving a medium sized donation one time and I have been continually hounded by their massive marketing machine. I have written them twice and requested to be removed from their lists. I have told the paid telemarketers who call, that I will never again donate to this organization. And today, still I receive another request for more funds. If you donate to this organization, please understand the only thing that your are improving is the depths of our landfills.

Food For The Poor
April 1, 2012

We received the pitch during our local church service. I took the Church's unspoken support of this organization instead of doing my own due diligence. Once I donated, I started to receive something in the mail from this organization every single week. I wrote them a letter and asked to be taken off their mailing list and indicating that they were spending more of my funds on mailers than they were on feeding the poor. Since that time, they have continued to send me regular junk mail. I can't tell you that I understand their organization and all of the details. I can tell you that I will personally never give to this organization again. I want to give to the poor not to direct mail.
