I never knew there were 8 dimensions of wellness. I always associated being well with being physically fit and not have any major health issues. Thanks to The Eight, I am making sure that my entire life is balanced. Not only do I watch my nutrition, I make sure I have "me" time and seek ways to improve my entire well being. Wake up call for me. Happy it was sooner than later. Great nonprofit!

I am a mature adult with many struggling with multiple health issues. The Eight nonprofit has helped to extend my life. It may sound extreme but I was suffering with acute high blood pressure, boarder line diabetic and feeling lonely. Most people may know The Eight for their first response to help people in need. But I know them because of their passion to help create healthier communities. I attend several small health and wellness groups provided by The Eight and I am happy to report my pressure is down, my sugar is down and I am surrounded by peers who understand my struggles and have helped me on my path of wellness .
This organization understands that each person is an individual and pays attention to the core issues to help people heal in more ways than one.

I am a freshman in college thanks to The Eight assisting me with finding grants online and referring me to additional resources. I am more confident since going through mock interviews and allowing me the opportunity to connect with peers and the community during the summer months. This nonprofit feels more like an extended family who actually care about people.

The Eight is one of the few grass root organizations that takes time and care along with much needed basic resources directly to the economically disadvantaged communities in the Riverside County area. By connecting life resources with people in need without destroying dignity in the process has proven to be a key strength. The Eight advocates a support-based reform agenda with the primary goal of providing strategically aligned necessary resources to each person seeking our services. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to reach for the pinnacle of success which is to lead a healthy and productive life.

I have observed The Eight as the organization presented several events throughout the years that were well-produced and impactful for the community the organization serves.
I am also impressed with the lists of corporations that have given their growing support to The Eight over the years.

I have volunteered for The Eight and they've done great work in the community. Giving away toys to kids during Christmas and helping underprivileged families find hope. It's nice to see the smiles on their faces when you're giving them something small, but means the world to them.
