Client Success Stories

Today’s trip to VCU was informative for the students, as well as refreshing for myself and the staff. Project Discovery you did it again!

College Field Trips

I greatly appreciate the dignity, kindness and care that was extended to me through this agency and specifically from Mr. Marshall Jackson.  Moreover, when my needs were brought to the attention of this agency, they wasted no time, moving very expeditiously within their program guidelines to provide the assistance I truly needed to obtain housing.  I will never forget this and one day when I am in a position to help, I plan on giving something back to this organization.

Helping Veterans

Project discovery has really impacted my life .This program also helped me with finding the right college and information I needed for doing college applications and scholarships.
