Family Service Association of Redlands
April 27, 2011

I have worked with FSAoR in two capacities: 1. As a social worker with Child Protective Services, I referred clients to this organization and 2. As a volunteer, with my family.
I was impressed with this program as a social worker because it meets many needs of a family: housing, food, child care, clothing, workshops, referrals, etc. It is not a program that just hands out basic necessities--they are invested in their clientele and want to help them succeed.
My family and I (including myself, my husband and our two sons), spent a day volunteering at FSA. We helped stock shelves in the food pantry. Although we have yet to return, it was a valuable experience in that it taught my children the importance of giving back to a community and to appreciate all the blessings in their lives. It helped remind my husband and I of that too. We do plan on continuing our involvement with FSA in the future. It is a valuable tool for the community, especially in these difficult economic times.

The Great!

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

the clients I referred to the program. I've also seen, as a volunteer, the happiness and relief it provides to struggling families.

Ways to make it better...

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

find a way to get them more funding to expand the program--especially with shelter.
