Lucy Daniels Center
August 18, 2010

The Lucy Daniels Center is truly a remarkable and unique organization with a national reputation. I searched for an organization to support that consistently makes a difference in the Triangle, especially among young people. I have learned that the social and emotional issues of pre-school and elmementary aged children is often overlooked or misdiagnosed. The wonderfully talented and dedicated staff at the LDC are especially skilled at addressing these issues. The staff is passionate about their work and have a twenty year track record of outstanding results.

The Great!

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

observing the progress of children in the pre-school and early intervention programs and the successes celebrated by the teachers and staff.

Ways to make it better...

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

develop a program to expand their services throughout eastern North Carolina. This is truly a unique organization where the demand far outstrips the supply of services.

More feedback

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

it has been a pleasure to work with the staff and Board of the LDC. It is especially gratifying to see the results of the programs and hear the comments of parents and children.

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

dedicated, compassionate professionals who place the welfare of the children far beyond their personal interests.

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

expand its programs and services to communities throughout this region, improving the lives of children and families who often seek the Lucy Daniels Center as a last resort.

Ways to make it better...

if I had known about the Lucy Daniels Center years ago and had more time and resources to give in support of the organization.

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

funding and informing the community about the "one of a kind" services available at the Center. Approximately 50% of the budget is dependent on donations.

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

there are many free resources available at the Center, from the Lucy's Book Club to the on-line resources at www.LucyDanielsCenter.org. I encourage everyone to learn more about the Center and spread the word to others.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
