I have volunteer every week for the past 3 plus years. Christian Help is truly a great place to be involved with. My children also volunteer during the summer when school is out. It teachers them what is possible through worship and devotion to others. It gives me great pleasure to see an organization like this right here in our community.
Everyday that I volunteer, I look at the faces of the people that come through the doors of Christian Help for the Central Florida Jobs Initiative program. Many of them broken from the obstacles that have been plaguing their job search, others weary of having to ask for assistance, and others hopeful that maybe this program will be the final step to turning their luck around. From this day on, I have the privilege of seeing their confidence soar as participants rediscover themselves and their talents, as well as renew their hope of achieving a job that will allow them to support themselves and their families. This program truly does change lives, and I am so appreciative to be a part of it.
This is an amazing organization that helps the community around them in many different ways. I see the impact they have in people's lives when I stop by their office and follow their news. I feel that my donation is never wasted and always goes to the people who need it most.
My husband and I began supporting Christian HELP financially years ago and have gradually increased our participation from just writing checks to making in-kind donations of services and participating in events. This is an amazing organization that delivers a much-needed service and is totally funded by private (not government) money. But the work of Christian HELP has saved local taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Christian HELP is one of Central Florida's most valuable assets.
My husband and I have been supporters of Christian HELP for many years. We are very careful when choosing not-for-profits to financially support. Christian HELP has mastered the art of lending a "Hand Up" rather than a "Hand Out". You can trust that their clients are receiving support in every way with love a care while being encouraged and expected to work towards a goal of independence. They offer spiritual guidance and job search assistance while providing basic needs for those who have hit hard times. We are delighted to support Christian HELP and applaud their successes in helping so many get back on their feet. Dan and Charlene Glancy
The organization has visionary leadership and helps many people. Lives are positively impacted.
I have been volunteering for CFEC and Christian HELP for over 10 years. I have volunteered as a Resume Coach, a Resume Critiquer at their job fairs and Re-Energize seminars. The staff has become part of my extended family. When I need help, they are there. When I need food (and I have several times) they do not hesitate to make it available to me. My wife has cancer and I am continually reminded that they are praying for her recovery. Although most people don't know me by name, because of 25 years in recruiting, many have been advised to consult with me to build their resumes. The team is just that....a team. Dick, Sandi and the rest of the team are obviously doing something right....they are effective, caring, and give Hope, Encouragement, Love, and Prayer (HELP) to all those who approach them....no matter what their denomination.
As a young adult, being able to be exposed first hand in the poverty stricken areas of our "modern" society really comes to serve as a culture shock and as tangible proof of what we are taught in schools today. More importantly however, is being able to curb these effects and help reduce, alleviate and hopefully one day eradicate the problems of poverty, unemployment and underemployment. These goals are the mindset of Christian Help and as a previous volunteer for several years I was really touched by how much a small, but growing, organization like this can do. It's all about the people and it's all about giving them the morale to strive for forward, the little push, the faith. This organization exceeds this and gave me an opportunity to help others at such a young age.
My husband and I chose Christian Help as our charity for Christmas 2012 because of their trustworthiness, dedication, and compassion to the less fortunate. We knew that the gifts we bought and the food that we donated would be going to bless those that were truly in need. This is a wonderful organization and I pray that others will find it in their hearts to give to Christian Help.
I have been volunteering with Christian HELP for the past 5 years and I have been beyond impressed with the quality of customer service and the genuine care of the employees. I have been volunteering at the Christmas program, going through in various job positions. I really enjoyed being an "elf" and experiencing the program as a whole. Watching people in tears, making Christmas happen for their families is so rewarding. I am so thankful to have been a part of the volunteer staff. God is definitely in this place.
I really appreciate the hands on approach and practical advice! Great organization!
Christian HELP presents an holistic approach to helping the unemployed. Its counselors and classes get the candidate prepared for the successful job search, provide the job leads and introductions and help them meet material and spiritual needs. Its Job Fairs connected over 5,000 job seekers with jobs this year. Its Food Program is state of the art and distributes over 120,000 pounds of food per month. Clients are already overrunning the ministry to get into its outstanding Christmas program and October has just started. The new Central Florida Jobs Initiative is seeing over 50% of participants get jobs quickly. It would be hard to find a more effective program in Central Florida.
this is a great organization. thank you for all the wonderful christian love you bring to the community.
As someone who cares deeply about our community, it is such an incredible joy and blessing to have Christian HELP and it's many resources within our city. Christian HELP's resources towards the unemployed, hungry and hurting are first class and their ability to deliver these services comes because of their generous heart and passionate desire to help people. Christian HELP offers tangible hope.
Christian HELP showed compassion and concern for my situation, and treated me like a real person during one of the most difficult times of my family's history. Every other organization, community or government based, made me feel like a criminal for applying for help, or made me jump through so many hoops, so many times that I was close to giving up on everything. Chrisitan HELP cared about me, helped me, guided me, and even when my needs were out of their scope, they assisted me with referrals and references to get what I needed. Not everybody is a crook or a lazy loafer, as some agencies make you feel. Christian HELP treated me better than family or friends and I credit them for providing me the food and resources - and motivation - to keep my family together until I could once again support them myself. I owe my family to Christian HELP.
Christian HELP is one of only a few non-profit organizations in Central Florida for which I tangibly participate either financially or by volunteering. They are extremely successful in assisting those who are seeking employment by not only finding them jobs, but helping them financially and materially during the period of unemployment. Without this organiation there would be a terrible void in our community. I encourage everyone to learn the Christian HELP story and to support them wherever possible.
I was admitted into the hospital in Juky and unable to attend work on a regular basis and this had a negative effect on our household. I am the only source of income since my husband died last year and have no family left alive to ask for help. I went to Christian help and found an answer to my financial distress. I have a good job and a steady history bgut when you are sick there is nothing you can do so I was very blessed to have been helped by Christian help. I will not forget their help to me in a time of trouble and I will give back financially to them in order that they may be able to help someone else.
When I retired in November 1992 Christian HELP became a part of my life first as a member of the board of directors and as a volunteer. My association has also involved fund raising and personal financial support. Since 1992 I have seen the Christian HELP ministry grow from a meager bare bones employment assisted ministry to a leading employment agency in the Central Florida Area. Christian HELP's Mission is to prevent Homelessness by bheling people find jobs while providing for them Materially and Spiritually. Modern Day Miracles have been witnessed thru the years as 65,469 clients have been connected with jobs and thousands of pounds of food have benn distributed to keep clients off welfare.
