Testimonials

Senior Friendship Health Center

The Collier Resource Center has been a critical and supportive asset to the Senior Friendship Health Center. Our senior patients come to us at a time of need for medical and dental services. The Collier Resource Center, located in our building, offers an additional step in the Continuum of Care that we strive of offer our patients. As our volunteer doctors, dentists and staff review the patient’s needs, many times they identify complex problems which require additional, non-medical assistance. The convenience of having qualified volunteer case managers connect clients with community services, provides a one stop shop for some of the most needy residents in our community.

The Salvation Army Naples 

I am very happy to have the Collier Resource Center (CRC) working in our community providing clients the service they need. CRC volunteers and part-time staff member, Norma Diaz, have such an amazing passion for what they do and are a great help to the community. Working for a nonprofit agency, there are times when we would love to guide clients through the search for resources. Due to time restraints and caseloads we are not able to.  We rely on having CRC available to refer our clients.

Collier Resource Center operates year-round with the faithfulness of Norma and their volunteers. They are reliable for clients and are always consistent in providing the correct information regarding community services. This organization is constantly working on bridging the gap of need in our county.

Thank you for your initiation, your drive, your expertise built up of years of knowing the local organizations and players, and perhaps most of all your compassion and kindness. We talked after you left. Everyone feels enthusiastic and comforted that we can direct families to you knowing they would get the type of help we strive to give.
