Review for Connecting Futures Inc, Monroe, NC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Sharon Allen is a phenomenon woman and trailblazer of Union County. Sharon took a stand to make a difference in our community. Instead of just talking about what needed to be done to address the disparities within our communities and schools that service our underprivileged youth, she took a step and established a wonderful organization” Connecting Futures” to address the issues. I commend her for her courage, perseverance and commitment in spite of obstacles that she may face.

As for the program itself, it is one that children are so excited & proud to be a part of because they receive attention and exposure to things that in their normal life, they wouldn’t have the opportunity to. Which is why I am so committed to the organization because I see the potential that it has, I see the need in the community for it and with the right support and funding; it could be a great success in making a difference in the futures of our children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would provide it with enough financial, community and parental support in order for it to be successful in making a difference in the futures of our children.

Role:  Board Member & I am a board member and volunteer who believe and support the mission of the organization.
