Review for Project Quest Inc, San Antonio, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had heard about Project Quest about 2-3 years prior to deciding to apply for the program, but really never gave it a second thought at that time. I then got to a point in my life where I was tired of working 2-3 jobs just to make ends meet & saw no real future for myself. I knew that the only way to achieve any hope for a future was to go back to school, however, with barely making enough to cover the necessities there was no way that I could pay for schooling. With Project Quest's help I was able to start school in August of 2008. I am now in my second semester of the LVN program, with an expected graduation date of August 2010. I can't stress enough how truly grateful I am for having Project Quest in my life. It is great organizations like Project Quest that help people who want to help themselves & are willing to put in the time & dedication to make a better life for themselves. I would still be working 2-3 dead-end jobs were it not for Project Quest & the great staff they have. In my opinion Project Quest is one of the few organizations around that provides you with a hand-up, not a hand-out & really deserves funding for the awesome work that they do that not only enhances individual's lives, but the community as a whole by providing training in critical career fields. There are many people like myself in the community who just need that extra help to make their dreams a reality. Helping Projest Quest will help these individuals and their families.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely helpful and encouraging.
