PROJECT QUEST INC
January 29, 2010
i really didnt know what to expect; all i knew was that i was trying to get help with school tuition, books, etc. i didnt qualify for grants becuz i wasnt poverty level, though i didnt even make 17K a year and i was single with no dependents, so according to the grant people i didnt need help. i had bills, insurance, rent, food, car, etc. and could barely keep my head above water. some months i had to skip payments, just to save a little to pay my tuition and books. i had already capped out my credit cards with prior tuition payments. when first preparing with project quest, i thought going back and forth for testing and interviews was a little hassel, but then i realized what i could actually gain from this program. it was alot more than just money, it was people really caring about me and really supporting me when i needed it. i didnt expect to get such great service, once i was really part of the program! the counselors are very helpful, even when i needed someone to vent to and they are always very encouraging! i only wish i knew about this when i was starting my nursing program and not during the last year, but late is better than never. i would definitely recommend this center to anyone who needs help. if there is a will, there is a way. please understand that there is criteria that has to be met, but if you keep up your end of the deal, like attending weekly meetings at school, the counselors at project quest is there to help you as much as possible.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my life as a nursing student, by benefits of tuition, book money, counseling, etc.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
my counselors are very encouraging and helpful. they take on our cases as if we are long time family friends who really care about us.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
enrollment testing agents, counselors and counselor assistants, director
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
really help so many more people in this city who truly want to make a better life for themselves, families and their communities, but cant afford it.
