Review for LA PINON SEXUAL RECOVERY SERVICES OF SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO, Las Cruces, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

La Pinon services are definitely appreciated in our community. They have gone to speak to us at Dona Ana Community College and even at my daughter's center. The services they provide are not only limited to sexual assaults but also bullying and educating children and providing them with the tools necessary to fight back and speak up. This is something that we, as parents are very happy to teach our children but understand that they need to hear this from someone else outside of the family that is within that organization to better educate them and let them know that they are not alone. Thank you guys for being very well educated on what you teach the community about their options and giving kids strength when they feel the most vulnerable.

Review for Avance Inc, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization helped my family with a lot of things. We did a couple of activities here for the benefit of my girls and my family as well. Even if the situation comes when you don't have a ride to attend a class, they go and pick you up! Not a lot of places go this above and beyond to help people out. My little girls still have a box of toys that were provided by the center and some that we made there even. They also provide help with child care if you need it. My wife and I definitely try to donate and participate in organizations such as this because we appreciate places that offer this type of help to families. Thank you, from our family!

Review for PROJECT VIDA, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It has been a while since I've been at this organization to ask for an type of help, but I know that I do appreciate them being there when we needed the help. This center provides help with medical insurance for those who can't afford it or even housing. I like that the staff was very friendly and helpful in providing us answers and assistance and even referring us to where we could get that help when they couldn't help us. Although like I said, it has been a while since I was here, I know that the community benefited from the type of help you guys offer(ed). Thank you guys very much.

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

Review for RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES OF NEW MEXICO, Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

About 7 years ago, I almost went to this house when my first daughter was almost born premature. Thank goodness that the doctors at U.N.M were able to prevent that from happening and saved my daughter. But while there, the doctors told us about the Ronald McDonald house and so we looked it up. Based on what we read, we have gained a new respect and admiration for organizations like this. Kids and their families are being helped with premature births with specialists and housing to those who aren't from there. We are proud to say that we donate to this and any other organization that helps children since then. Thank you Ronald McDonald house for all the work you guys do to help families in situations that I was almost in.

Review for Boys & Girls Clubs Of El Paso, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I remember growing up attending this place and having lots of fun here passing the time with my friends. Whether going there to play basketball with some friends or just hanging out. It is nice to know that places like this were around to keep kids off the streets and away from the gang life or any other kind of trouble. Though I know that the center has gotten some bad limelight, I also know that that is not involving the kids. We as kids, used the center for what it was for, and I know that I am not the only one that wants to give a long over due thanks to you guys. Again, thank you and hopefully you guys get another opportunity to help out our youth.

Review for El Paso Community Action Program Project Bravo Inc, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Within Project Bravo, I have been helped out one time to be honest. Yet I still would like to show my appreciation for the business for their help. It is very nice to see that there are organizations out their with the sole purpose of helping people when they have no one else to turn to. That is exactly what they did and got me out of a tough situation. Thank you to the staff that was there at the time because to be honest, I remember going to a church nearby at the time that sort of turned the other way when I asked for help.

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

Nothing. Wish you guys had more funding though to help others.

Review for Ywca Of El Paso Foundation, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is actually for the YWCA on Mesa street but I could not find it so I figured maybe since it is the same name they cover all YWCAs in El Paso. I really love this place and so does my family. We used to go routinely here before our last baby came along and the kids really enjoyed the pool and even the daycare. The staff here is extremely helpful and friendly. The lady in daycare really bonded with our kids and helped ease them into being with someone else and not us and made the transition that much easier. Same with the staff at the gym and the boot camp classes. Thank you for everything guys.

Review for El Paso Zoological Society, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Thank you to the El Paso Zoo for all the memories made. Over the years the many improvements made here have really beautified and attracted the community a lot more, and that's something you don't see a lot here. Thank you guys for still being here and encouraging the community to keep coming by adding more and more to your establishment.

Review for Humane Society Of El Paso Inc, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I got our family's first pet here (Jayden, Pitbull/Dalmatian mix). Kids really loved it and he was extremely loving and grateful to be with us. I never regret getting the little guy and would definitely get another pet here. Even though Pitbulls have a bad reputation, the little guy never hurt our kids and I would definitely consider a Pit again.

Review for Goodwill Industries Of El Paso Inc, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Really appreciate Goodwill centers. To be honest I was there for court ordered community service but I feel that I was not judged and was treated fairly. Plus when I was younger I remember doing some shopping there so that is what helped in the decision of volunteering here. Thank you to everyone who was there at the time I was and everyone who still continues to help now.

Review for SALVATION ARMY, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I remember staying at this place when I had no where else to go. The people here treated us nicely, at the time (I was about 5 or 6) I felt they could have been a little nicer. Maybe they were or maybe it was just my imagination as a scared child, but I am still very thankful to this place for giving my mother and I a place when everyone else turned their backs. Thank you.

Review for Tresco Inc, Las Cruces, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am very grateful to this center. They were there for my family when we needed them and helped my daughter throughout her first 3 years and thanks to that she has been able to make progress. Enough to be at her age-level. Thank you so much to Mily especially, who saw so much potential in my daughter and never gave up. Keep up the great work guys!

Review for Women's Intercultural Center Inc, Anthony, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've volunteered at this center and have never regretted it. The staff here automatically treated me like part of them. As a volunteer, they have worked with me in every way possible they can so that my experience there was always a good one. There are many activities here for the community to participate in ranging from citizenship classes, job fairs, judo for the kids, guitar lessons, they even have community dances here. I can honestly say that volunteering at this center has become something I won't forget.

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