The Eight programs help educate communities in the Coachella Valley on the importance of wellness and safety. Most think of these two silos as independent concerns when in fact they are interconnected and need to be considered as such. The Eight programs are innovative and have engaged and motivated thousands of people to assess and make changes, where necessary in order to lead a successful lifestyle.
All of The Eight programs are conducted through volunteers, in-kind and monetary donations. Please help this grassroots nonprofit.
The Eight continues to show sincere care, respect and consideration for people in need. The organization advocates Wellness in all areas of our lives. We are proud to partner with them as they continue to connect life resource to people in need.
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.
Thank you for the kindness you showed to the hundreds of families that came out to your last event! No one noticed how exhausted you were; that's love!
Thank you for all that you do! There ha not been one occasion that you failed to meet the meets of a family in crisis!
Your organization is well respected by so many of your peers!
Continue to soar!!!!
The Eight is indeed an oasis in the desert! Many families has been positively impacted by your continuous presence in the Coachella Valley!
From toys, to personal hygiene, backpacks with school supplies and more, it is refreshing to know that agencies such as yours are driven to bring hope into the lives of some many.
The Eight nonprofit is a small organization with extra-long arms that stretches out and embraces the heart of people in need.
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.
My family became homeless due to a fire in the middle of the night. My children had nothing but pajamas and a friend a church suggested we contact The Eight. The organization was kind and thoughtful. They gave each of my children their own bag filled with blanket, hygiene, games , etc. We were given food and shelter for the night and was referred to the proper agencies in order for us to get back on our feet. It is hard to believe that this grassroots organization showed up before anyone else. I now understand that they help when they can because they have yet to receive government funding. They just operate on pure love and with a handful of people who care for people. Everyone is a volunteer. My family is grateful and are getting back on our feet. But this could not have been done without The Eight . The first night was the most frightening night and they helped me and my children feel safe and hopeful. I am pleased to be a volunteer for the organization and can actually give back.
