Review for Center For Respite Care, Inc., Cincinnati, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a volunteer and a donor for almost 10 years. My first time volunteering was on Christmas Eve of 2003. A group of us came down to the center to sing Christmas Carols for the patients. We had a wonderful time, and enjoyed our conversations with the men and women staying at the center. The patients seemed very touched by our visit and expressed their deep gratitude. The staff was very welcoming and made us feel like we were part of the family. I looked forward to coming back and helping out any way I could.

I volunteered doing mailings and some of the patients would help out too. I also had a chance to serve meals and help with a picnic. It was always enjoyable and everyone was so appreciative. The most memorable parts were always the opportunities to talk with the patients. It was obvious how much they loved being at the center. They seemed to enjoy my visits and having someone to talk to about ordinary things rather. I've met some really amazing people and have a very different understanding of being homeless than I did ten years ago.

If you want a really rewarding experience, I highly recommend volunteering at the Center for Respite Care. If you're looking for a place to donate and know your money is being used well and making a huge difference, this is the place.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them build a bigger building.
