Not only am I a client that was served, I also had the honor of volunteering with this organization. They are 100% committed to helping the military and their families. Their programs run year round and if you're in need of something specific, they will usually guide you in the right direction. They have a heart for the military and especially the children that never had a voice in this particular lifestyle. I am a military wife and Mamie and her staff are warmhearted and welcomed us with open arms when we didn't know anyone in the area. They have programs for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, back-to-school, and fun stuff in between. They are not in it for the glory and they want to keep it small.
