“…prepared me for the profession that I was most interested in pursuing and gave me the confidence to take the next steps after college.”

“Volunteering at Centre Helps was the best decision of my undergraduate career. Centre Helps surpasses all other training, including what I learned in formal college classes. I will be forever indebted for all of the skills and experience this agency has given me.”

“This has been an experience that I will take with me into every path of my life and I’m grateful to have been part of something that has benefitted so many people.” *
