I measure the effectiveness of a non profit organization like the ASYMCA of San Diego by the direct influence my small and inconsequential contribution directly makes on those for whom they are intended. I can attest directly that each of those military members and or their dependents who has interacted with Paul Steffen's and or one of his super staff members would agree 150%. And from what I understand it does not stop there, the assistance and acts of kindness that go on behind the scenes from military hospitals to private counceling services reinvents the term giving back.....and who but those who defend and protect our country needs or appreciates it more?

I have been a military spouse for 31 years until my husband's recent retirement. I have been connected to the San Dieo Armed Services YMCA through my husband's position as Regional Commander. I have never seen an organization run so well that has helped so many in all those years. The volunteers are dedicated and the net the Armed Services Y casts is huge. I have always been impressed with Paul Steffens and his staff. Sharon Hering
