Interfaith Community Services
November 29, 2010
I volunteer answering the phones at the front desk for ICS. When I started six years ago, we received 20 or 30 calls for help each morning. Now with the very tough times we face we receive up to 300 calls each morning. Our fellow citizens are desparate for help - shelter, utility bills, food, help with IDs and gas vouchers so they can look for work.
We are providing much more help than ever before, and our resources to do so have increased quite a lot. Still the needs are even greater.
I feel blessed that I can help so many through what ICS does for those in need.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Hearing from those needing help and in meeting those in need that come to our offices to receive assistance - often bringing with them young children.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Work to obtain additional resources - even though our resources have increased several fold in six years - so we could serve even more of those in need.
Volunteer & I am president of the ICS board and volunteer at the front desk each Monday morning.
