Review for Pace Center for Girls, Inc., Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

PACE is unlike any non-profit I have had the pleasure and privilege of serving. I know for a fact that every dollar invested in the PACE program will result in a change of life for the girls at the school. I have personally witnessed angry, disenchanted girls transforming into confident and ambitious young women after going through the program. The staff is not only knowledgeable, but also displays a limitless compassion and optimism that is infectious. It is my personal honor to serve on the board and I will remain on the board as long as they will have me.

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

the tangible results I see everyday. The girls are changed a little more with every day they attend the school.

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

compassionate, knowledgeable, caring, patient, long-suffering, kind, and always optimistic.

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

Expand its services throughout the state of Florida to help even more troubled girls realize their value and potential.

Ways to make it better...

no answer.

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

legislative and economic. A large percentage of our operational funds are approrpriated by the state. With budget cutbacks at the state level, as well as at the investor level, we are having to do more with much less.

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

the PACE program and methodology is the permanent solution our country needs to address the challenges our young men and women are facing as they strive to become productive members of society.
