This place has been where I've grown to know and love God more than any other place. It is my church. It's how I am part of the Church. It's where God parts the clouds and shines on his people. The staff is very dedicated to serving the people of Kenmore. The volunteers are so selfless in their care. It's changed my life.
The thing that makes FG so great is the wonderful volunteers that give so much of themselves to help the students.
I was a student when it first opened and now volunteer when available. The organization has impacted my life and has shaped me into the person I am today. The organization has dedicated volunteers who take time to invest in various programs that is offered at the center.
I was a student at First Glance before I became a leader. I have been involved with First Glance since 2002. It's been a blessing working with First Glance. The leaders and student leaders that I work with work so hard to make great things happen. Will everyone that is involved with FG does amazing job! Thanks to GOD for his work. When I went to Costa Rica mission trip this summer I preached to people that are pregant at teenage and teens that do drugs, and I think to myself I wish they had a First Glance there ro help them with the struggles they go through, to lead them into Christ. :) I'm pleased what God is doing in this organization.
I am a volunteer at First Glance! Love First Glance that is changing teen/young adult lives & the community for the better & for Christ! I have volunteered for a lot of places in my life but non as loving, caring & compassionate as this group...staff & volunteers that give back in so many ways...& even opening up their homes!
First Glance is a group of enthusiatic, passionate & awesome individuals who give of their time (leaders & the volunteers) reaching out with their hearts and God's love, in a committment to the youth of Kenmore. The youth can come and be accepted with unconditional love & where they are in a safe non-threatening environment. Everything the leaders & volunteers do is a positive impact in training these youth to want to be better citizens, and helping them to grow to bring up their children to make a better community in Kenmore. They are making a difference in the lives of teenagers, and in the Kenmore community being changed for God's Glory. They are giving them hope & direction thru caring for each teen that comes thru the doors. The staff of volunteers are also giving them a chance to get off the streets, and also teaching them how to make better choices in their lives & the opportunities to set goals in their lives. Karen Freeman & Nicole Beck have so much contagious enthusiam and are really passionate for this ministry of changing lives for Christ!
I am a volunteer at First Glance in the Young Adult program. As a volunteer, I love the relationships that I have built with the young people and other volunteers who are a part of our program. First Glance offers young people a safe haven. Just a week or so ago, one of the Young Adults mentioned that we are his family. At First Glance we are family. We accept one another for who we are and support each other through the good and bad times. I love this organization and wish every community had a First Glance.
Great people. Great mission. Great Atmosphere. Love to see how genuine the care for the students and the community is at FG. Lives have been changed bc this place was created❤️
First Glance does a great job of reaching out to the youth of the community by providing a place of refuge and fun for those that need a place where they can trust in people who lead them in the direction of knowing Christ.
First Glance is a place where all are accepted and loved. Lasting friendships and relationships are built. As a volunteer, I feel very much a part of the family. There is geunine love and care between voluteers and students.
I love first glance. It's such a great place filled with fun compassionate individuals
I have been volunteering with First Glance for over 7 years now. In that time I have seen great things come from them. Everything from individual lives being transformed to the entire community as a whole. I'm thankful to be a part of such a great organization and am excited for the future.
I've been a staff volunteer for a little under a month but before this I was a student leader and spent a lot of my free time here at first glance. The leaders are all amazing I've connected and became very close with a few of them. The programs its self helps a lot of teens that walk through the doors! Love this place!
Looking to help teens, young adults, teen moms, preschoolers, or skate boarders connect to Christ while building a relationship with them? This is the place for you. Many great programs that help meet the needs of the Kenmore community and assist them in life. Making a difference in a person's life is easy at First Glance.
I have been volunteering with First Glance since 2009 and have been employed with them through 2010. FG is impacting the community. Thankful for the all students that come out weekly and the volunteers that give up countless hours to serve.
I have been Volunteering with First Glance for a little over a year. I love investing in the students. Many of them are coming to escape a home environment and find love, and I love that First Glance is available to them. The volunteers and staff truly love these students and desire for them to not just succeed in life but enter into a loving relationship with Jesus Christ, but they do so in real, loving, and non-threatening ways, just as their mission says.
We started volunteering with the Young Adults at First Glance when our daughter invited us to an evening meeting. That was over 3 years ago and we are still active in this ministry. We have met some wonderful people and have been challenged to live our faith more completely. I challenge everyone to volunteer just one time to see how First Glance is transforming the Kenmore community.
I have got a lot of great advise from some of the staff and it is a great place to hang out with friends. First Glance is a great place for kids to go to get away from the troubles of the street. There are so many things that you can do like video games, pool, skateboarding, computers, or just hang out with friends. There is also great food!!!
First Glance is a fabulous organization that was started up in the inner city and caters to young teens who really have it rough. They provide a place to come and have a good time without the use of drugs or other illegal activities. They provide mentors for the kids that are always willing to listen and offer support through difficult times. They offer education as well as tangible items to young mom's who are struggling trying to raise children in a tough environment. They teach kids about Christ's love and encourage them to become involved in local churches where they can learn more and make a difference in their communities. I don't know of a more positive nonprofit organization than this one in our community. We are very lucky to have such wonderful leaders in our neighborhood with a passion for kids and this community.
It's been awesome and I have lots of fun. And help people when they need it. Because I like helping out and making friends.
I was first introduced to First Glance by my younger sisters. I think it's a cool place for the younger kids to hang with their friends and not be causing trouble.
First Glance Teen Moms is a wonderful program! I am so surprised that it is not more well known about.
It is great to help at First Glance. I have the privilege to be with youth and share my Christian experience with them. Not only do I share with them, but they inspire me with there enthusiasm. Many of the youth are very excited and dedicated student leaders.
