It’s been a great experience for me with run your race ministry located in Hyattsville MD. I was introduced to the program by a community representative in my local commity in Bladensburg, MD. The program helped meet in so many ways and even today the help is valuable to me. One of the program directors that I would like to recognize is “Barbara Miller”. Throughout my down moment and hardship seeking employment Barbara Miller stood at my side with all the information that she provided for me for jobs that I should apply to in order for me to make end meets throughout my job search. The help in the organization is great for anyone who seeks assistance as in my circumstances as a single mom raising a child by myself “run your race ministry” made a huge difference in my life the help that they provided when there were no one around to help me the information they provided the people that I meet touch my personal live , the message that the ministry offered the program that supports the community overall made an impact in my life .The benefits and outcome in this program is that I would like to do the same in giving back to the community for those who are in need of help and to reach out to make a difference in someone lives . Today I am now a participant at run your race ministry as an undergrad student working on my internship at runs your race ministry. I plan to make a difference and learn every aspect that will support the organization.

Barbara Miller was introduced to me by: Reverend Bobby, there I was treated with so much respect, love and compassion, and an overwhelming amount of generosity, not just financial, but Ms. Miller helped me revise my many resumes.
Ms. Miller also, kept me informed of many positions, that I was qualified for on a daily or weekly basis.
There was a career dress shop in her office, Ms. Miller introduced me to the food share.
What a wonderful experience, a wonderful person and an excellent human resource professional.
Also, Ms. Miller helped me find movers on the day before I moved, I called Ms. Miller and she delivered. Two wonderful men helped me move
I love Ms. Miller
With all sincerity, Patricia Swingle.

Barbara Miller revised/updated my resume to current "standards". Although I haven't snagged a job yet, I've had two positive interviews. She's been most encouraging and helpful and continues to email job postings. I appreciate all her hard work!

Edwin U. Nnodim has known Barbara Miller for more than 3 years and her ministries-Run your race that help people get jobs. She send on daily basis job vacancies to my self and family and I believe she does this on daily basis to other people free of charge. Mrs. Barbara is a humanitarian who likes to help people to succeed in life. If stars are to be increased I will recommend that she be given more than 5 stars.

I continue to be amazed by the depth of on-the-ground, heart-to-heart practical help that Run Your Race (RYR) provides in its community. For people who are out of work due to layoffs, lack of skills, language barriers and other factors, Barbara Miller and her small staff provide customized assistance for each client. Maybe the client needs help writing an effective resume, maybe they need to learn how to budget their funds, or they need proper clothes to wear or transportation for an interview. RYR also provides basic computer training, practice sessions for job interviews, language training, emergency food and housing assistance, large doses of encouragement and other types of help. Being a locally-run program/ministry, RYR is personally connected with their clients who area also their neighbors in their shared community. Run Your Race is not a large-budget program, but they would love to have added resources to help even more people learn to provide support for themselves and their families. It's a great blessing to everyone involved to see people move from hopeless, confused and insecure to become hopeful, trained and confident---productive and proud members of society. While RYR is excited to work with people from all walks of life and faiths, the principles employed to assist each person are based solidly on the love God demonstrates for all people. We need more of these types of local help programs.

When people in a community need help, I believe the help should come from as local a source as possible. Who better can understand the needs and provide specific help than a person's neighbors in a community. Run Your Race Ministries is a great local resource for the people of their community. There are personal relationships built and customized care given. The clients are not merely numbers in a computer waiting in a line and filling out forms, but they are treated with love and respect as unique individuals. The help is given from the heart, not to fulfill a job duty. Run Your Race is a great local example of how support and benevolence should be handled in communities all across this nation.

To me, Run Your Race Ministries is better than the state programs that only help you with employment. At Run Your Race it's not just about the job aspect but also the spiritual which is very important.

Run Your Race Ministries is one of the key resoures I use in my work serving those in need in Prince Georges County, Maryland. The unemployed and the under employed in the surrounding communities of Hyattsville, Maryland are blessed to be served by Barbara Miller and her ministry Run Your Race. I have referred many of my clients to her and most of them come back to inform me that not only are they now working but Run Your Race is still assisting them in upgrading their skills as they set goals for more rewarding employment.

My husband and I were both out of work for a while and Run Your Race Ministries was placed into our lives, by the Spirit of God. It has helped us in ways we cannot explain. Ms. Miller helped revised my resume. Keeps us informed of positions we may want to inquire about. Tells us when there are things going on that could help us (food, services, job fairs, and etc.). There are times when we only need a word from the Lord and I open my email just to find an encouraging pray or poem. I receive a phone call and Ms. Miller is on the other end, or I pick up the phone and call her and there is a smile on the other end. This is a ministry blessed to help others. I pray for it and know that if there is someone who thinks that all hope is gone they will find a way to encourage you.

I Thank God, I was led to write this little message and hope it help someone.

Run Your Race Ministries is an organization that has helped many persons to go from poverty to being a productive member of our society. With economic conditions being as they are, many persons are homeless and without jobs. Run You Race has provided a valuable service in helping persons to write, sometimes, their very first resume and to learn interviewing skills that can make a difference in getting a job or just getting your foot in the door. This organization not only help with these skills but also helps to make sure that the client is properly attired when going for the interview. The service that this organization provides is very much needed in our society today especially for those who are down and out.
