My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Self Enhancement, Inc., Portland, OR, USA
Hi ! My family is made up of one Bi-racial daughter & a single white mother family. SEI has been in my family life seence my daughter's 1 grade end, (2002) seen the start of summer progrom. Over the years Millie has got help in their after school program. In the after school program they help kids with their homework & they feed the after noon meal/ snack. They give them mentors & give them wonderful activities after school. In the summer they run summer school/actives. The kids in the summer get to do fun actives, they put kids on teams with tee-shirts, when the kids line up you see a rainbow of kids each color of the rainbow is a team. The kids learn to work as a team member & that kids from different schools can be friends & not rival gang members. The SEI try's to teach the SEI Standards are founded upon the principles of Integrity & Respect of each other & are self.
As a parent I have taken parenting classes & a parent support group. I have taken the domestic violence course & I have been given the opportunity to learn new healthy life skills. I have been able to learn The SEI Preamble & The SEI Standards also. Plus Learn the right way to be a Phenomenal Women & mother, independent women in to day world. By having a positive women role model from the older women (Primcella Smith & Ellon Manly & Mrs Wells & Charlotte Mitchell-Reese) in the SEI programs. SEI is like having a village raising are children.
As a family we have gotten water services and energy assistance to pay are family electric bill. We have been able to get holiday assistance such as food boxes and gifts for the holiday's. My daughter went to SEI Academy for her middle school Grades 6th, 7th, & 8th. Even through family separations SEI has been a rock hard foundation for support for our family.
Even though we have had a few set backs with each other, as a single parent home. We still have had SEI family supporting both our needs as a whole family. Make a safe place for my daughter while she & I to work throw are independent needs. As a family we have had to put are problems a side to help other family's from the SEI families village ( we choose as a family to go to funerals ). As she going throw the teenage years, she has been living in a 3 party home. My hope that she will grow up to be the most Phenomenal Women she deserve to be with help from The SEI Program. Thank You!! All
