BENEDICT CENTER INC
May 28, 2010
When I came to the Benedict Center to volunteer, I found whe staff very friendly and welcoming, and the women participants were extremely grateful for any help I could give them. All of the women at the center have had conflict with the law, and they come to better their lives. They learn to overcome many obstacles, such as poverty, homelessness, abuse, drug addiction, and crime. Yet, they are all treated with respect and dignity in order to build their confidence and self esteem. As a volunteer, I felt that I was making a significant contribution to their progress.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
that I had to complete 100 hours of community service while on probation, and was accepted without judgment. I was able to serve in an environment that accepted my own failures unconditionally, and allowed me to give back as part of my own recovery.
