My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Presbyterian Home For Children, Talladega, AL, USA
I grew up in Talladega, and had friends that went to school with me that lived at the Presbyterian Home. Several of the girls would come spend the weekend with my family. Later they rotated churches and came to my church. When I finished college, I interviewed with Mr. Uptain. He asked me to work for a month in the behavioral cottage to see if I was a good fit. I enjoyed working at the Presbyterian Home and Mr. Uptain offered me a job. I declined the job offer and went to work for AIDB where I taught for 28 years. I still had connects over the years with the Presbyterian Home, and have always supported PHC.
Two years ago, I retired and became the Executive Director for the United Way of North Talladega County and met Doug. He and I have worked with the families at the Home.
Last week, a group from Robinson Cottage and staff helped with one of our food distributions. The girls worked and provided fresh produce boxes for 400 families.
I am very proud to have friends that support each other in the nonprofit world.
