Review for Center For The Healing Of Racism Aka Institute For The Healing Of, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Center for the Healing Racism is an important part of my life. After taking part in the Dialog:Racism program, I began teaching a Healing Racism class at St. Agnes Academy in Houston. Without the help of Co-director Cherry Steinwender and other members of the center, the class would never have materialized. Most important to me, I experienced--along with my students--many opportunities for healing my own unaware racism and new opportunities to help heal the disease of racim. I teach in San Antonio now, but my contact with the Center continues to inspire and help me.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

taking part in the Center's Dialog:Racism program, and working with Center members to develop a class for high school seniors.

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

simply give them more resources so that they could bring their assistance to more people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The staff of the Center has a passion for the work of healing racism. I met many wonderful new friends and colleagues.

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

hard working people like myself, and who have a deep love of people and a desire to heal one of the social ills that continues to plague our country.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

create a more substantial national center for healing racism. There are already many talented professionals who offer their time and talent.

Ways to make it better...

I could have done more volunteer work for the Center. Teaching limited my time to volunteer.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding activities that the Center does for the community, especially educational work. Also, as a small organization, the work can be quite taxing for staff and volunteers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I love this group of people. They have changed the lives of hundreds of people for the better and they've helped to make this world a more hospitable place to live for all people.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
