Volunteer Services Intern (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – January 8, 2018
As a intern worker I gained a lot of knowledge about the organization and what it stands for. It provides legal services with no cost at all. It gives those young people between the ages of 18/29 years of age the opportunity to expand their job readiness skills. Assist with those coming from a correctional facility looking for fair housing, infant clothes items and food pantry feeding those from all walks of life that need these services. Each day are busy some days are hectic than others, but the public are served completely and respectfully with dignity and with patience. The public comes in to fill out paper work that we offer assistance to those who have difficult in reading or writing. The hardest part of the work would be the different personalities that comes into the facilities and remember it's about them that need the assistant.
no one is turned away, no one is judge they know other services
Medical Clinic Coordinator (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – August 15, 2017
A typical day at BFC is fast paced and rewarding. I learned a lot with BFC, we had training on diversity,Trauma Informed Care, Racism, Quitting smoking, and more. Management is cool. The work place culture is visionary always looking for new ways to help the under privileged. Hardest part of the job is not being able to HELP clients enough, and the most enjoyable was being able to serve the resident's of Washington, DC with dignity and respect and there was always food around. I really enjoyed working at BFC.

Bread for the city is an organization that help low income people and is a non- profit organization. The management are willing, willing, able,supportive of anybody that need help. They are groups of special people to be among and reliable individuals whatever happens there is someone who is at your side at the time of sorrow and need. l love the place so much to leave any at given day is a problem for me because there is so much to do and more individual to help l love to be part of the team and after my internship, l am still part of the volunteer team update.
Community Organizer/Policy Advisor Intern (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – November 27, 2016
A typical work day is coming to work and knowing that you all are working to make a difference in someone life. Everyone is so nice and love on each other. I learned a lot about community building and working on Policy control in the District of Columbia. I had the opportunity to work with at large council members and the Mayor. Co-workers are AWESOME! WE ARE LIKE FAMILY!!! The hardest part of the job can sometimes be the holiday helping season were we are the most busy. I mostly enjoy working with the community and in advocacy and working on housing campaigns.

Law Clerk (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 21, 2015
The entire staff (legal and non legal) was very helpful and they taught me a great deal. They were patient with me and gave me a good number of assignments. The hardest part of the job was drafting the legal documents because I was new to the legal field. There are few to no restaurants close to the southeast location but the kitchen was fully resourced. There is a great rooftop garden. I enjoyed client intake days because I had the opportunity to meet and consult clients. Overall great work environment.
Temporary Employee Assistance (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – August 4, 2014
Great organization but its really hard to move up with this non profit. Ive worked for them for over a year and have been trained in 4 different departments and still haven't been offer an full time position. Unsure as to what they are looking for but alot of the positions here need a certain degree requirement or ask for one. That in my opinion is really unnessary because alot of these positions you need to have people and communication skills, I feel that is determent for other indviduals who work for the company to ever feel they have growth. As a whole the people ( clients are nice; well some) , staff is nice and I like the concept of giving back to the community . I really enjoy helping and assisting people within times like today where there is hardly any support or help within the community. Just wish that it was support within this organization. Sad.
Access to information regarding food, clothing and other valuable information that is not spread out within in the community
Cant move within the company and certain supervisors aren't any qualify to be managers
