We ask that you make a commitment to support our annual appeal by making a donation. This year our goal is $5,625,593, and we hope that you will be able to make a contribution. Our goal will fund all our family services and outreach programs for a year. Your generosity will make a difference by allowing us to continue in our work.

Excel House provides a clean space for children who cannot play in public places when they are first discharged from hospital due to their low immune system. They can play at Excel House as much as they want!

Thanks to PISI's support, many events are held here. One of the child care specialists told us: "Children who have a low appetite tend to eat incredible portions when they join a cooking event at the Excel House and it is great to see their lively faces. There are also seasonal and craft events and children love those also!"

One of the finest stories is when a two year old boy overcame his difficulties at Excel House during a short stay with his parents. They said: "Please look at our son. He is so much better than last time we met!" The boy apparently played with toys at the house up until the last minute before he had to go back to the hospital. He was very happy.

The Brooken Foundation supports children with cancer all the time, through its many programs sponsored by PISI. The largest project this year is supporting outpatients who are going back to a normal home life. It is extremely important for them to be able to make this transition smoothly. The Brooken Foundation told PISI: "We appreciate PISI’s continued support for our programs and are very grateful for your help and understanding."

I chose Parnell Intermediary Services because it’s highly professional and has experienced groups of people. Parnell Intermediary Services help people to develop the capacity to create a new future for themselves and their community. I used it as a stepping stone to being able to achieve something for myself. My entire experience with Parnell Intermediary Services has given me 100 times more than I ever expected. I have gone from the lowest point in my life to quite possibly the highest. Parnell Intermediary Services has such an amazing bunch of people. Thank you for the life changing experience.

Your donations to PISI helped thousands of extremely vulnerable people to rebuild their homes and replant their vegetables. Vouchers were issued, to allow communities to purchase the correct building materials, with guidance from PISI‘s local partners. Vegetable seeds and gardening tools were also provided, as well as training on how to get the best yield. The training was very practical, giving all the women an opportunity to ask questions. They commented on how motivating it was to learn about preparing the ground; the proper use of fertilizer, the types of vegetables that grow well next to each other and how to protect seeds for the future. Manzoor Bibi, a widow from Kot Addu with eight children, lost one child during the floods, as well as her home and all her possessions. Now she is being helped to rebuild her home and grow her own food. She told PISI: ‘I don't have words to thank PISI for helping us. … I have nothing to give them except my prayers. They have saved my children’s lives. I wish them happiness.’ Another positive effect of your donation is that facilitating communities coming together to rebuild their homes and lives has empowered people who would not normally be part of the community decision-making process, especially women.

My family and I have volunteered for several of Parnell Intermediary Services Inc. programs since 2003. Parnell Intermediary Services Inc. calls its volunteers PISI Integrity Team. As a member of the Team my family and I have helped PISI respond to a variety of disasters, including tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires, explosions, and floods, across more than half of the states. PISI provides assistance both in the U.S. and overseas. PISI is like a home base during disasters by housing volunteers, storing equipment, and sharing information and insight about the community. PISI Integrity Team is polished with committed people with varied talents and experience. Spread the word about PISI. PISI depends on donations to do great work. Since PISI fees are based on a person’s annual income, 98% of the people receiving help are getting crucial services for free. Ask your family, friends, and peers to support this charity. PISI is the real deal!

This is a great legitimate 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Public Charity. The fact that its "public" is one of the reasons why I donated to support some of their family and outreach programs. PISI spends the money you donate on a specific program if you don't want to make a general donation. This time I wanted to support their multimedia program. I knew where my money was going. They spend 90 cents of each dollar completely on the program you want to support and 10 cents of each dollar goes towards their administration costs. Everyone was friendly and professional. PISI is a small organization that does huge constructive things for the community. I hope more people and corporations support PISI. SUPPORT SMALL CHARITIES. They need funding just like the large nonprofits to help people. PISI represents integrity!

From my personal experience and witnessing their action, PISI is outstanding at helping someone in any way, any kind of good to anyone like feeding the hungry, helping the poor, saving animals, taking care of orphans, lending hand to disabled, providing shelters, food shelves, clothing drives and other stuff. I do a lot of shopping in their Online Shopping Center. PISI is basically a great multipurpose organization. I have nothing but positive thoughts of PISI. I know there are many others that feel and think the same. PISI provides help to people in the states and foreign countries. PISI is amazing! :)
