Center for Children and Families, Inc.
April 15, 2011

The Center for Children and Families, Inc. is an amazing organization. I was very priviliged to be a volunteer for four years. I was allowed to be a part of the many dynamics of this organization and gained much insight and experience. Not only did I receive professional experience, but being allowed to work with the wonderful people who serve through this organization changed my life.

I began as a work study student and soon understood why this organization is necessary and so successful. At CCFI every client was treated as an individual and their needs were what was important. Each person that passed through those doors for whatever reason entered a place of compassion, honesty, and love. I was able to see the differences client services made in the lives of children who had been abused and/or neglected.

The Great!

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

my personal and professional life. This organization paved the way for my career path. I changed my major in college and sought to work more closely with children to enable them to reach their full potential.

Ways to make it better...

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

find a way to offer more programs that were cut due to funding.
