Review for Churches Active in Northside, Cincinnati, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Although I have moved away from the state (live in San Diego) I still visit C.A.I.N. when I make a trip back home. They are always so gracious and welcoming to me even though they are usually very, very busy with clients. It reminds me of how gracious and welcoming they are to EVERYONE that steps across their threshold. C.A.I.N. has been in operation form many years yet their enthusiasm and respect for those in need is just as new and encompassing as they were in the early days. What a wonderful operation they run. I am glad to say I was a part of the C.A.I.N. family.....and still feel I am.

C.A.I.N. was the first volunteer program that I embarked upon as an adult. I was enticed to come there by a wonderful neighbor and fellow volunteer (who is still quite active with C.A.I.N.). The level of devotion and enthusiasm was nothing short of marvelous. I watched them grow from borrowed space in a church basement into the wonderful program they now present. I am still amazed at all of the opportunities they afford the working poor with such limited funds. C.A.I.N. makes me smile.

After working with C.A.I.N. for several wonderful years while I lived in Cincinnati, I moved my family to San Diego, California. Mimi Chamberlain, the director, has kept me in the loop and a part of the C.A.I.N. family like I had never left. Their email messages and brilliant web campaigns to garner the support and supplies they need to care for their needy is always interesting, intriguing and gets me thinking of what I can do to help from so far away! On an extended visit to Cincinnati to spend time with family, I was welcomed back into the fold and quickly was back in action as a volunteer. It takes a very special kind of group to emit that kind of warmth and family-like feeling while facing all of the obstacles that they face each year. And ALWAYS with a quiet, graceful smile! I brag about C.A.I.N. to all of my fellow volunteers out here on the left coast. It is quite a program! Cyndi Craig
