Review for ACCEPT, Reno, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Accept has been one of the most positive and influential forces in the Afro-American culture here in Reno NV. What you must understand is that the population of black people in reno is only 5-7 thousand people, so to see someone start a non-profit agency, out of their own pocket, because they see the need within a community is to be commended. Before Glenn & Gwen received one dime from the federal government, they were out helping people with the horrific disease. They were doing the work before it was the cool thing to do. Now thank God everyone can see that this disease is destructive to the human family as a whole, not just one group of people. They have been out in the community educating the masses on safe sex, and taking the fear and the ignorance out of this disease. If anyone comes to Reno, if you give them 30 days or more they will hear about accept, which says alot about this non-profit's impact on this community. Now they have branched out into family care and well being, which i think is great. I sat through a parenting wisely course that I wish I could have taken 20 years ago, it would have helped me be a better father to my to grown daughters now. And in my personal opinion they should become the primary agency in NV. Because a lot of other agencies are using accepts method now of touching the community, which means they are someone to be followed.
