Review for Love in Abundance, Houston, TX, USA
Its difficult to give short description of Love and Abundance because it is so needed in the community. I have known Vickie nearly three years and recently just understanding the asset young people have in the organization which provides needed direction. Coming from single parent background I have seen firsthand what bad choices lead to in the adolescent minority community. I have seen teens gravitate to her in gratitude publicly for time she takes with them. Nowadays children are not as easy to read but the thorough information I have seen children recieve clearly is utilized thus the response the teens have when they see her. Her work is truly invaluable if the less fortunate are really to have a chance of information access in the future.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
At teen functions where Love in Abundance is presented the instant gratification parents and teens show for modules of learning patterns needed for college and other areas of growth is amazing to see.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Personally be more active assisting these teens in capacity within Love in Abundace outreach committee. Vickie has offered volunteer positions and I have yet to fully indulge the work with undivided attention. When I set aside more time I will recommend more teens to her program and not change one thing. Her program works fine without any retooling if anything she needs more help from young people like me for more teens to be reached.
