The staff at Whole Again International are great! When you're coordinating something as worthy and beneficial as providing services (summer camps &after school programs) to families in need, the last thing you want to worry about is how you're going to feed the children. The meals are always on time and if there was ever an issue, they were there to fix it right away. They are family to us and we're happy to be part of their family as well.

I have been volunteering with Whole Again for many years. The children are very happy to receive the meals each day. The volunteer staff works well with the children. I think that Whole Again is a great organization and they do good work in Cincinnati. I wish that others would support them so that they could do even more.

My experience with Whole Again was amazing. A month prior to the summer my income was cut into half. Being a single mother with an active 8 year old i needed something for him to do in the summer. I needed some where he would be safe, active and feed. I couldn't afford some of the other summer camps in my area and/or they didn't meet our needs. Knowing my current struggle a friend directed me to Whole Again. I spoke with some of the staff and they directed me to a great site that meet all my needs. My son attended a site that was geared towards the art of dance. My son loved it. He was able to dance, learn new dance techniques, go on field trips and make new friends. It was good to know that he was having fun and most importantly he was safe and well feed. My son received a healthy breakfast and lunch everyday. Even on the weekends, he received a take home bag full of healthy foods and drinks. With having a lower income those weekend meals were a life saver. The staff is very caring and supporting of the children and their families. With all the negativity in the world and life struggles, I found peace knowing that my son was safe, well feed and having fun. I will definitely tell people I know about Whole again because it was truly a blessing for me especially in my hard financial times. My son is already looking forward to going next summer.

This was my first year sending my 2 children to a Whole Again site. It was VERY affordable and was a full day program 5 days a week. The kids received 2 nutritious meals and even dinner to take home some days. They had 2 field trips a week and received educational services. We appreciate Whole Again and look forward to next summer!!

Without Whole Again, we at Washington United Church of Christ in Cincinnati would not be able to provide breakfast and lunch for 50-plus children from low-income families who attend our 8-week, Monday-Thursday Summer Youth Program. In addition to reimbursing our food and related costs, Whole Again provides opportunities for programming and special events for children.

Whole Again provides food and enrichment for Cincinnati urban youth during the summer months when the schools are closed. They are a wonderful group who use best practices while administering services to all who participate in their program. It's no wonder that the numbers of site partners is constantly increasing every year!

Whole Again is a premier organization that serves the Hamilton County area. They serve breakfast, lunch and weekend meals to Cincinnati's most vulnerable population--it's children!! Since 2005, Whole Again continues to perform these services using a permanent skeletal staff, seasonal summer staff and many volunteers to feed over 1,000 children annually at a number of site partner locations.

Although,Whole Again does a lot, they could impact thousands more with additional funding!

Whole Again has supported the Su Casa Hispanic Center for 13 years and our summer enrichment program for young children since 2008.

Su Casa's Vacaciones Útiles serves about 60 children from pre-k to the second grade each summer. Whole Again provides breakfast and lunch for all of our kids every day of the summer camp. Additionally, Whole Again provides food for families to bring home on the weekends. These meals are very important during the summer for low-income families and children that are not getting nutritious food at school.

The parents appreciated the weekend meals greatly-- we gave out extra food at the end of each day and week, and we never had any left over! I know this is a valuable resource that helped to feed kids and their families in the area.

Whole Again, their staff and many volunteers, have touched so many lives In Greater Cincinnati. Not just with the meals, education and ‘Fun to be Fit’ for children, but also the community through the engagement and inspiration of Pastor Chandler. As Whole Again was a multi-year investee of Social Venture Partners Cincinnati, we have been proud of their growth in community impact, but every one of us working with them has grown as well in understanding the issues and how a full belly can help to overcome. Best of luck and keep up the good work!
