"Having the chance to participate with feeding the Homeless at Nicholas House was a life-changing event. Spending time with the kids and seeing their expressions of happiness was amazing and an experience I'll never forget."

Elecia Pearson
Customer Service Supervisor

"Visiting Nicholas House was a wonderful experience. We were able to meet and feed the families residing there, as well as learn about the resources and services that Nicholas House provides. I had never heard of a program which accepts the whole family like the one that they have... It is great to know that there is a place that cares for the homeless the way that they do, making sure that they are able to get the help they need and become independent in their communities. I look forward to being of service in even more ways as a result of my experience there. I will never forget it!"

"I was so touched by a group of staff who clearly cares for homeless people that they help daily. Knowing that there are people who will give someone shelter, food, clothing, and love to a stranger is priceless. I can't express the warmth that I felt by helping to serve a meal to someone who appreciates an act of kindness without complaining or to ask for the “bells and whistles” that we take for granted everyday by always having something to eat. Rabia, thank you for allowing me to be part of RentPath Gives Back. The dedication and time you are spending to lead this company initiative is a success story."

Concierge Supervisor

"My perception of homelessness to this point has been defined by what I had read or heard in the news. Nicholas House shatters preconceived notions and changes perceptions. It is hard to reconcile whole families, some multi-generational, being without a house or a place to call home. Nicholas House impressed me with their mission to not only house these families, but also to provide childcare, education, support with employment, etc. They work on a shoestring budget, low overhead and a strong mission to get people into their own homes. Our group went in with a sense of purpose and it was good to see everyone pitch in and work hand-in-hand to serve the residents. Whether putting the food together, serving, cleaning up or just having conversations with the residents, each RentPath participant showed that they truly cared. RentPath is doing a tremendous service, not just in providing food, but opening the eyes of its employees to the issue of homelessness."

"I am so thankful to have had an opportunity to visit Nicholas House. When I got there, I just stood back and observed the home atmosphere. When the families came in, I carefully watched how they interacted with one another and then later with the crew. The crew was great. We all just wanted to help and give them our undivided attention. I have been to a Shelter, but I raised three sons and a daughter without a father. I have given back to families in different counties. I have always worked with underprivileged children. I have always wanted to own a facility to save our children and build character and help them find their way in this world and to be good to themselves under any circumstances and that will be given back. I notice there were more mothers there with boys, that disturbed me. I observed so much, that I cannot write about."

"It was such a great experience to be able to provide the Nicholas House families with love, some comfort, and a warm meal. Being able to see the smiles on their faces was the best part of my experience! The kids had such bubbly personalities and were such a joy to be around, as well as their parents. Thank you RentPath for allowing me to experience this memorable visit to Nicholas House."

"I really enjoyed volunteering for the Nicholas House. It was a very humbling experience that I will never forget. I was able to help serve dinner to the families living there. They shared their stories through poems and their happy demeanor despite the odds currently against them. With no hesitation I would volunteer again!"
