I have been pleased to participate in this organization for seven + years. When you participate, and hear stories of success from people who were formerly living in extreme addiction, poverty and distress, it's hard not to become even more involved. I began by providing complimentary consultation on marketing, became a board member, chair of marketing and development, and currently serve as President of the Board of Directors. I encourage anyone with an interest to visit www.evasvillage.org, find out more, submit inquiries and donate. Your participation will improve American inner city lives and communities.
