As a service learner coming into Community Improvement Organization has made me realize a lot of things. This organization has really opened my eyes. CIO has made me have a different perception on the other different type of environment. Its has changed my view in the community. There are many different hard-working people helping with others to create a better way of living in their community. This really made an impact on me and has made me feel more helpful. This experience was amazing, it wasnt was what i expected it to be. I would love to do it again.

As a Service Learner here at Community Improvement Organization, I have changed my view on our community. There are so many issues that they deal with on a regular basis. This organization tries to help out as many people as they can. They helped me better understand the harsh realities of life and that if you can, one should always help out people in need.

I came to Community Improvement Organization because it was an assigned volunteer project for one of my college courses, At first I thought "What a drag! having to spend my free time in some office doing something pointless" but I was in for a surprise. The C.I.O. is a great organization, nothing I did while I was here ever felt pointless. The organization leader Iris always kept me busy with different tasks that ALWAYS involved doing something helpful for an unfortunate individual. The C.I.O. truly proved to me that non profit organizations really do make a difference in our community and set a great example for their volunteers, from simple tasks like making thanksgiving baskets for those less fortunate to completely renovating a home for a lonely elderly woman. All in all the Community Improvement Organization is nothing short of life changing, I applaud The C.I.O. and its leader Iris for all the great improvements it provides for our community.

This organization is a very life changing experience because you learn a lot of new things. I also learned to help out on different things so in return help out the community and make them feel like somebody cares for them. Especially old people that are alone and need help and i was glad i did something to change another persons life.

This organization is awesome becuase its main goal is to help the community. This organization cares and loves to help people in need. They do alot of activities involving the comunity. I never imagine that so many volunteers are helping improve the leaving conditions of those poor individuals that dont have the resources in order to fix their homes. I really loved what this organization does for so many people out there, And most important they do everything with so much passion and dedication.

The Community Improvement Organization is such a great organization, I am in love with everything they do to help people in need. There are so many people out there who need a hand to keep going maybe because they are alone or do not have the money to survive. This organization helps those people by providing them what they need and giving them hope. This is not only an organization but a big family full of love and the will to help others.

It is quite heartwarming to help others without expecting anything back. When you realize that with just a little of your time you can help a granny or a child in need to improve their life. Then, you might realize that you are the one who is improving; you are improving your human quality by helping others to live better.
Please help us to change the live of those who need it.
