FAIR CHANCE
January 28, 2010

The Parklands Community Center was one of the first nonprofit organizations that received capacity building funding and support, back in the day. It was during a time when our board was falter and funds were down. Thanks to Amanda and Fair Chance our Board got back on track, and their guidance helped us to become more effective in soliciting more funding for our year round programming that served as a safety net for children and youth living Ward 8. So many thanks and I am glad to see Fair Chance still around helping other nonprofits serving people in need. Brenda H.
