I have been a member of the Southeast Texas Nonprofit Development Center (Center) since 2008.  At that time, I had been the Executive Director of Stable-Spirit for a year, and was needing to learn about running a nonprofit and writing grants.  I attended just about every workshop that the Center held, so that I could run Stable-Spirit as effectively as possible, as well as within all the proper guidelines and rules.  I have said for many years, and continue to say today, that Stable-Spirit is as successful as it is today, because of all the support and learning that I received from the Center. I have become very confident in my grant writing skills, because of all that I have learned from the grant writing workshops through the Center.  I always encourage every nonprofit organization to join the Center, because of all the benefits that
will be obtained from their workshops and excellent leadership.
