Family & Children's Place
February 15, 2011

I work in a company that volunteers time, money, and material goods for this organization. Family & Children First is a great place to help heal from those wounds that touch the mind- those through abuse, neglect or other forms of violence. This place provides a resource when all is dark, and provides a light to follow into health and stability through such rough times.

I'm proud to spend my time and efforts helping these people. If something was to happen so traumatically to me, this is the first place I would go.

The Great!

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

I have never been to the location. However, it makes me feel really good donating clothes, books, toys and money to these people who just need something to bring them out of their pain, out of their darkness. When I was really low, a friend reached out and gave me a shoulder to lean on, and handed me a small gift. If a toy or a book can pay forward the same thing to someone else, I will continue to do so. They are the shoulder to lean on, the place to go, the light in the darkness.
