CLARKSTON COMMUNITY CENTER FOUNDATION INC
October 28, 2014

I have worked with many non-profits that serve low-income communities. I can honestly say that Clarkston Community Center is genuinely an organization guided by the community it serves. With incredible diversity and a community struggling with poverty, CCC answers the call by providing innovative programming to support young people in their education; adults in their workforce skills, and elderly with care and nurturing.

It's an amazing place and I'm proud to work with them!

CLARKSTON COMMUNITY CENTER FOUNDATION INC
September 5, 2013

I volunteer with Clarkston Community Center in their Clarkston Youth Initiative. Specifically, I help with the college preparation program. I can honestly say this is some of the most meaningful work I do every week. The community is wonderful and Clarkston Community Center is the center of so much positive energy for the community. The people I have met through CCC have been some of the most interesting and funny and kind people I know.

If you ever have an opportunity, volunteer or support this organization!

I have volunteered with Clarkston Community Center for several years now. The CCC truly embraces the philosophy and values of a community center. Residents and community members make CCC what it is today. The programs support young people, seniors and refugees. The center is used by community groups for meetings, concerts, dances, festivals, sporting events and more. Any time I visit Clarkston Community Center, I come away with a smile and with ever more affection for such an extraordinary community.

Partnership Against Domestic Violence
May 8, 2012

I have worked for years with the staff from PADV. They set the standard for all domestic violence agencies in Georgia. Their work is professional to the highest standard and their care and support for survivors is beyond compare. The staff work very hard in very difficult jobs. They are constantly striving to find innovative and compassionate ways to support those affected by intimate partner violence. I cannot say enough about this organization or the people who make it run. They set the standard within the state for serving survivors.

Partnership Against Domestic Violence
March 29, 2011

I have worked with staff from PADV for more than five years now. They are tireless advocates for survivors. PADV works relentlessly to ensure that domestic violence survivors and their friends and family have the support they need to heal. I want to personally thank everyone I know at PADV for the difficult jobs they do every day. They make my community a better place.

The Great!

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

Working on issues of domestic violence in the LGBTQQI and immigrant communities.

Ways to make it better...

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

Give all of their staff a huge raise.
