Review for Center Point, San Rafael, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked for Center Point for over seven years and have seen first-hand how this organization has helped improve the lives of many people. Operating as a nonprofit, there is always uncertainty that funding may not be secure for the long haul. Center Point has made strides in securing their future with smart business decisions; building connections and relationships in the community, as well as, within the field of recovery and; through faithful planning. They recognize that their existence as a human services organization is important to the community and the clients they serve, as such; they work hard to achieve success in everything they do.

On a personal note, I have not only been an employee of Center Point but have also been a recipient of their services. By believing in me and teaching me that I had something more to offer the world, they helped me believe in myself. This was integral to me changing the direction of my life. It has been said that to be good is honorable, but to show others how to be good is the highest honor and Center Point does embody this belief. I was able to completely transform my life and I know in my heart that the catalyst was Center Point. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to receive services from Center Point and the friends I found while there. For all these reasons, it is important to me that Center Point will always be available to others in need.

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

promote the good work that clients achieve after treatment through scholarships, clear career paths, etc. This would raise the visibility of the good work this organization does, while encouraging clients to keep achieving. Former Center Point clients make for the best friends, role models, and professionals if given the right grooming and opportunities. What better way could a client give back than for working for the betterment of others that are in the same situation they have been?
