Review for Irving Cares, Irving, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been on the board for Irving Cares for over 10 years. Teddie Story (CEO) and her staff do such a great job. Even though Teddie has a limited staff, she has lots of volunteers and together they are able to help so many Irving residents. There is so much need in Irving and Irving Cares is able to help those in need with rental and utility assistance, a food pantry and employment assistance. All of the clients at Irving Cares are treated with dignity and respect. And many of Irving Cares' volunteers and employees have been there for many years - another testament to Teddie's great leadership. Irving would not be the same without Teddie and Irving Cares.

Review for Irving Cares, Irving, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer and board member for Irving Cares for several years. Teddie Story and her staff do a great job in trying to meet the needs of Irving residents. And the need is great and continues to grow every year! It is not easy to ask for help and when a client asks for help from Irving Cares, they are treated with dignity and respect. Irving Cares gives them a hand up not a hand out and teaches them how to be self sufficient. Irving Cares is a great resource for the Irving Community.
