I wanted to say that Disciples For Christ Communtiy Outreach offer great services for not only adults but kids to with little or no funds. These are working people such as myself that is doing great things in our communities and not being recognized for their efforts so I am glad to be able to leave this review about their good work.

I am a college student now but I have enjoyed the pleasure of participating in disciples for Christ programs since I was a little girl. I participated in the afterschool program, dance, choir, and college prep workshops and worked with the younger kids in the computer lab. This outreach has really helped me become the person that I am today and without their support I don't know how I would have made it, especially with all the negativity in my neighborhoods and my schools. Thanks Disciples for caring about me I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

I have been involved with outreach for some years and it has been a blessing to me and my family. A while back my family was hit with two death at the same time and we were unprepared and did not have a lot of money to pay for the two burials and Disciples Outreach got together and went to the media and called for help and raised the money for both burials. I'm so grateful I also participate in the music program and it is such a joy to be apart of this program it has made me grow in my singing. I have also participated in the computer lab this program is such a asset to the community I believe that the Disciples Community Outreach is a God sent every program offered is so much needed and our community is blessed to have these services available to us.

I have been involved with this outreach for a number of years. I have had to privilege of learning in the computer lab to hone my computer skill on presentation design. I have participated in the carpentry workshops as well as the music programs. It is one of the best programs I have ever been a part of. The organizers and founders have created such a family atmosphere you feel like you can learn anything and you usually do.

Hi my Annie Forbes and I enrolled in the secretarial classess on Tuesdays. I have three daughters and I didn't have that much education so finding a job for me was not even an option. I found about Disciples offering programs for inner city youth and familes that are below the poverty level so I signed up. Now I am reading and learning things I never thought I could do and without people looking down on me. So glad I met these people.

HI my name is Priscilla Young and have participated in many training and development programs that Disciples has to offer. I love how Disciples truly reaches the heart of the people as they give all people a second chance at life by helping them acheive their dreams and goals that before seem impossible. Disciples is not just an ordinary outreach facility it is a life support for a dying community that now has a chance to resurrect. I am looking forward to many good things from this organization in the future. Priscilla Young, Rochester, NY
