Would you recommend Children's Institute, Inc.?

Children's Institute, Inc. is a wonderful organization that helps underserved youth. It was a pleasure to help them assemble dorm kits for foster children who will attend college in the fall. The staff is friendly, professional, and welcoming.

The work they do is multifaceted to reach an undeserved community. They are enthusiastic and grateful for assistance.

The staff is very supportive. You get to bond with young children and serve as a positive role model. I was part of the summer Super Start program that met once a week and I had an enjoyable experience.
