Review for INSTITUTE FOR CIVILITY IN GOVERNMENT, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This non-profit advances the cause of civility, both in government and in all public speech. The Institute for Civility in Government works with high school students, especially those from disadvantaged or difficult backgrounds; organizes and hosts conferences on college campuses with speakers from both of the major political parties; works directly with Congress to promote civility, and offers offers civility training to any group or organization that is interested. The organization carefully does NOT take positions on issues, rather, chooses to work with people from all political positions, all backgrounds. The two co-founders have labored selflessly for 15 years to bring this organization and its quest for civility to the forefront. It's work is beginning to pay off. Many other organizations have recently jumped on the band wagon of civility, but the Institute was talking about civility before it was popular to do so. The work the Institute is doing with high school students is remarkable, transforming even gang members into productive memberes of society.

Review for Interfaith Caring Ministries Inc, League City, TX, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Interfaith Caring Ministries provides assistance to those in need in its community. Even more so, though, the compassionate staff provides genuine concern and care for those they serve. ICM is about more than providing assistance, it is about caring for and loving the whole person.

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

I have seen lives changed and dreams fulfilled through the assistance provided by ICM.

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

I would add a social worker to the staff and seek funds to address the primary causes of homelessness.

Role:  Board Member & I serve on the Board of Directors and recruit volunteers to serve ICM.
