I like how CAIN sends out one-time requests. For example, there was a woman in need of an undergarment, I happened to have some Kohl's Coupons/cash and was able to make the purchase. Sometimes it's the small steps that make giant leaps.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

providing volunteers to CAIN

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

offer an educational component to its clients on healthy food choices. I understand food stamps do not go far, and fresh fruits and vegetables are expensive and hard to come by.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the choice pantry. Empowering clients/guests to choose healthy food to serve their families.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind and treat the clients with dignity

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

educate clients on basic living needs, i.e., budgeting, healthy eating, parenting classes, after-school tutoring for children at risk,

Ways to make it better...

the volunteers could work until 3-3:30 p.m. They're here on mission trips, need to stay busy from 9 a.m. - 3:30. CAIN's work is done by 12-12:30, thus I need to find another part of the city to send them to.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding, cash donations, in-kind donations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish Northside would offer a community garden near CAIN - perhaps empowering its clients to grow some of their own food. Give a man a fish..feed him for a day. Teach him to fish..feed him for a lifetime.
