SOTM Inc welcomed me when I came to Texas looking for an opportunity to be a part of something. They provided several opportunities to not only work with the community but work as a community! The ladies bring to the table knowledge and a willingness to give back! I truly enjoyed working with this group because you truly see the fruit of your labor!
The mothers day event was wonderful and my mom has so much fun. She won the award for oldest mom. The music and praised dancers was awesome and speaker.
I attended the Mother’s Day event for the 2nd year in a row and I enjoyed every bit of it! It was a very well organized event and the SOTM committee made me feel very welcomed! I highly recommend you guys to come to the event next year!
The Mother's Day event was awesome. Difference from any other Mother Day event.
I live Sax player was the high light of the evening.The gifts never ran out, everyone received a gift.
Looking forward the the next event. Hope to see you there.
I attended the Mentor celebration. The group did a great job. I appreciate the many ways they celebrated the value of mentoring. Great Job! I will be there in 2019.
I was involved with their women, mentor's and mother's celebration and it was wonderful. The speakers, the live music, the fellowship, the food everything was great. They had a dance group who came and they were off the chain. They gave out so many special gifts, no one was left out plus we got a gift before we leaving. I can't wait to see what is next. This organization really goes out to show they care about the community.
It has been such a blessing to witness SOTM Life Skills help a large population of diverse clients manage various life issues. Many come to the center with the world on their shoulders, knowing they can find peace through the counseling and support they receive here. Clients have often mentioned how they feel revived with each visit and thankful for a relaxing setting to escape everything and recharge. The experience has affected me directly and indirectly. I'm grateful to be a part of this loving community.
I just wanted to let you know that the tea was GREAT!! Lots of fun and plenty of gifts for attendees.
Looking forward to next year.
SOTM is an outstanding organization. I've had the opportunity to work with them both as a volunteer and when I was in need of support and I have nothing but good things to say about them!
Volunteering for SOTM was a very fulfilling experience. I had the opportunity to provide guidance for people who were truly in need of assistance. I am so grateful that I got to be part of such an awesome organization.
Mentoring at this organization has been the highlight of my life. Peer-to-peer mentoring is fantastic!
As a member of the Board, I feel so grateful to be part of this wonderful organization. Everyone who participated in the program, events, and training that we have provided always walked away feeling fulfilled, uplifted, and eager for the next events. This organization is so well needed in the community; it is apparent based on the feedback from the attendees. I personally would donate my time 7 days a week if money was not an issue. I enjoy volunteering for this organization and pray that God will continue to bless this organization and every person who is associated with SOTM.
SOTM is a wonderful organization full of amazing people who are passionate about their mission of helping others in the community. Their compassion and understanding turns any bad situation into a blessing. I highly recommend SOTM and all that they offer!
SOTM is always looking for new ways to help and improve the community. They're not about getting recognized by their peers, the only thing that matters to SOTM is that the community benefits. Quietly, SOTM affects change wherever it can.
I have been part of this organization from the very beginning of its existence. When it started I was single and childless and since then I've now been married for 16 yrs and 4 kids later and could not have gone through those milestones without my sisters from SOTM carrying me through every step of the way.
Genuine caring and personal touch are what makes them great.
I Believe and will support SOTM, the individuals which run this organization are amazing, loving and caring. These characteristics carries over into the works done at SOTM.
I believe in the work of the SOTM Life Skills Center. It’s my plan to become a volunteer or board member because the work is so very meaningful to the community, and I’d like the opportunity of serving through the organization. By mentoring members of the community, SOTM is providing skills needed to help the community to grow and develop. The youth, couples, the elderly, professional counselors all benefit by participating in the mentoring, counseling and training programs. It's Excellent! ~B. Perkins~
SOTM is one the best life skills group that I have had the opportunity to work with. They are compassionate and extremely patient! I believe that skills that they equip you can be very beneficial to you and the community! Please support this organization... we need them in our community.
S.O.T.M is more than a great organization. They people who cares about the individual person. They do not treat as a client coming to get service but treat as person who need to be love where they are. S.O.T.M help people at the point in life where they are. I just wish more places had the compassion that S.O.T.M has if so people would not hesitate getting help. I love the atmosphere and from day one they make you feel like family and each time you come in they genuinely glad to see you. I love their work and I will be willing to do anything to help them grow. More people need to know about their services.
SOTM is a great organization with a commendable mission which is Supporting others through mentoring. I had the opportunity to volunteer with SOTM and what an experience that was, great people embracing great causes.
Serving as a Board of director has been rewarding and enriched my life. Knowing that I am making a difference in the life of youth adult and seniors in the community is the reason why I keep serving? I’m looking forward to meeting new community heroes and heroines in the years to come.
I had the opportunity to meet Marie Aschkar and after picking her brain for more information on the organization I have decided to do more research. I found great things about SOTM and will communicate effectively with Marie and at the same time I look forward to being a supporter of this organization.
Dominique (the head of this beautiful organization) was a colleague of mine for over a year at a well-known mental health hospital. She is educated, knowledgeable in her field, capable, qualified and has a service oriented heart for helping and serving others. You will find the SOTM headquarters to be welcoming of all people and diverse in its outlook in the community. The Duncanville, TX neighborhood is quite the lucky place to have such a wonderful and welcoming mentoring program in their community!
I have been working with SOTM, inc., since April, 2014 as an office assitant. The instructions I get from Dominique and Marie are easy to follow. I Have truly enjoyed working with them in creating slides for a Mentoring workshop, proof=reading copy, making suggestions, doing networking around the area, and helping out with any office work needed.
This is a great organization to work with, and it is doing a great service for the community.
My volunteer experience with SOTM was very fulfilling and educational. My beliefs and works closely align with SOTM and what the organzation stands for and provides - working together to mentor, develop life skills, and give attention to the well-being of members of the community. SOTM provides life-changing coaching, development, empowerment, and support to those in need. Working with SOTM has been one of the best experiences that I've had.
I've volunteered with SOTM for a number of years and am still available, although I've moved away from the DFW metroplex. This organization is available to empower men and women to reach their potential. There are so many people hurting and in need of support, guidance, and sometimes just a plain old friend. SOTM, Inc. is that place to go for assistance with coping and learning basic, new, and fulfilling life skills. I highly recommend this organization to the Duncanville Community and others that are not ashamed to admit they need help. Their offerings are highly professional and confidential.
Hi, my name is Marie Aschkar, I have been volunteering with this organization since 1995 because I believe in what SOTM Inc is doing in the community. The mentor-to-mentor program has helped tremendously. Through this program, mentor and mentee are paired up, and asked to make a one-year commitment to one another. Both partners gain the benefit of companionship, encouragement; and are challenged to develop greater levels of integrity. I was paired up with a mentor who had gone through the same issues I was going through at the time, my mentor shared her experiences with me, and I learned from her. I was so grateful for the help that I received from the SOTM organization and decided to volunteer with them; and I have been with them ever since then. I will continue to support them and all the programs they offer. It is really a great organization, they have been in the community since 1993 with minimal grants and barely surviving, this how much this group believe in the community, they believe if one person shows up, the show should go on.
