North County Interfaith Council, Inc. (dba Interfaith Community Services)
March 1, 2011
There are few organizations like Interfaith. Their employees are strong, intelligent, and caring. They go far and beyond their everyday jobs in order to aid those in need. I began volunteering at Interfaith, and because of the cooperation, time, and information that the staff was able to provide, I was able to complete my graduate research through this organization. After volunteering for a year at Interfaith, I was offered a job as program manager for one of the programs. I worked there for another year and saw first hand how Interfaith affects the lives of families and individuals who are in desperate need. Interfaith opens its arms to all kinds of people and provides a wide range of serices. Some clients who are helped by Interfaith have just fallen a little behind and need some extra support, while others face more serious conditions. Interfaith is always there, collaborating with other organizations and institutions, and listening to what the community needs.
