The Amos House is a first rate organization. The Executive Director, Eileen Hayes, cares about her employees and everyone who uses the Amos House, like her own children. Her dedication to the Amos House mission is unlike anything I have experienced in my years of business experience. That is why it is no coincidence that the Amos House is a success and a model for how non profits should operate. It is all part of the bigger strategic plan. The Amos House is successful also because it is not just about helping people, it is about helping people help themselves, which in the long run makes the persons success sustainable. The Amos House gives you the tools to succeed and then it is up to you.
Amos helps the poorest of the poor in the community. In addition to providing meals, housing, counseling, medical and rental assistance, the agency is committed to turning lives around through teaching skills and providing employment opportunities through its social ventures. This includes a restaurant, catering business, and building contractor services.
Amos House, what can you say. They provide services for the most challanged population with compassion and dignity. Amos House has also taken on enterprises that help get people jobs, such as the home improvement business and the restaraunt business.
Without this organization, there would be no place for many of this population to go. These are humans who have had issues in their lives, but still are given a chance to suceed.
Amos House is well run, and is a great organization. Can't say enough about the total approach they take when dealing with their clients, it is a great model, and great for Rhode Island.
As a volunteer, donor and board member, Amos House is an amazing organization affecting real change in people's lives. Amos House gives people a second chance and provides them not only food and social services, but the tools and skills to turn their life around. The staff is incredibly dedicated and hard working and I regularly hear people in the Amos House programs talk about how grateful they are for Amos House.
I choose to give to Amos House because I like that my donation is working to elicite long term change and not just a short term fix. I never doubt that my money is going exactly where it is most needed.
