They work hard to make a difference in someone's life and they do it right away, without being judgmental and on a volunteer basis.
Would you sign up and go work for free every day down in a little shopping center to help people that you don't know at all?
Who would do that for someone when they have nobody to turn-to?
These volunteers have a home and a life. Why do they leave their comfort to help?
Thank God for them.

I work as a volunteer here doing the data entry. I am constantly amazed at the love and the compassion the other volunteers have for our clients. If there is a need they go the extra mile to see if it can be met. I truly have been changed by my own interaction with several clients. This non profit is truly the hands and feet of Jesus. I feel blessed to be a part of it.

I find this group to be the real thing. Whatever the need they are there to help provide it. ESL classes, good "out patient care" to the under the bridge people, clothing, furniture are all available for the struggling. I have volunteered in the pantry and find it to be very clean and organized. My monetary donations I know are well used. These volunteers are very dedicated.

Part of what makes this organization so special is that it is 100% run by volunteers - there are no paid employees. Everyone that works here is passionate about lifting up others in the community and has a true heart for helping people. It has been humbling and life changing to me to witness how good people can be (even those that have so little themselves!) and how they are willing to give others their time or resources.

Actually also a donor. This group is run with compassion, understanding and caring. They strive to see the "customers' succesful in life, not just provide a handout. Impressive group.

This organization is staffed solely by volunteers and works one on one with the homeless in Cy-Fair. Twice a week, multiple teams drive the streets of Cy-Fair looking for people in need. They stop and visit with those they find and work to build relationships. This organization's goal is help the homeliess become self-sufficient. They help approximately 200 people each year and many of these are successful lin working their way out of homelessness.
