Review for Here to Serve Inc., Monrovia, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

Here to Serve does not count success by providing a lot of people with band aid solutions. Here to Serve comes through during the deepest, darkest, most stressful time that a parent can face. When a child is gravely ill, Here to Serve is there to help families bridge the gap from heart ache and catastrophe to a new life which sadly doesn't always include their child. When my lively, happy, athletic 11 year old daughter was brought down by two strokes, Here to Serve found me on my knees. Here to Serve mobilized my community and helped develop a support system far grander than I would have created on my own. I got help with meals, dog walking, fundraising, rides for my son, cleaning and much more. During the first year I had 10 case managers and 12 social workers handing me lists of organizations to call for help. Here to Serve was the only organization on those lists that made a difference in my life. Here to Serve held my hand so that I could keep going, create a new life and get back on my feet. I can honestly say that I don't know what I would have done without them.
