My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Family Service Association of Redlands, Redlands, CA, USA
It has been my privilege to serve Family Service for more than 20 years as a volunteer, a board member, and currently as President of the Board. I remain committed to Family Service because it is an organization that strives to fulfill its mission to alleviate poverty, to encourage self-sufficiency, and to promote the dignity of all clients.
Since its founding in 1898 Family Service has had the ability to adjust its programs to meet the needs of its clients. Today it not only provides food and clothing, but it also provides case management, essential to opening the path to self-sufficiency. In addition, housing opportunities, employment and basic life skills classes, and counselling are offered.
The Family Service staff is dedicated to providing the best possible services for the clients. Programs, such as the recent Spring Festival,for the children and their parents, are opportunities to develop strong families. All clients are treated with dignity by the staff and the volunteers.
The community support, both the volunteers and the monetary support, is outstanding,
