The Bridgeport Rescue Mission is a very good expanding charity helping feed and clothe, and providing shelter to the poor. The Rescue Mission recently increased efforts to raise contributions thereby possibly affecting its overall rating by spending more to raise funding in the short term. I have offered to assist their ratings by analyzing their cost structure and making possible recommendations to improve their overall rating. Again, it is an excellent charity, and numerous people rely on its role in the Fairfield County, CT region

I have been involved with the Bridgeport Rescue Mission now for well over three years. I am a volunteer teacher, mentor, paralegal and perform other work with these men multiple times weekly. This place has become for me a second home. The love of Christ is truly shared in this place and I simply cannot find a better program within a hundred miles for a man to come in off the streets and get his life straightened out, a commitment to Christ and getting ready to go back out into the world ready to work and meat his day to day commitments. The way they treat the homeless with regard to overnight accomodations, the three meals they serve daily to the hungry, the clothes they distribute to the needy, the counsel they give to the people who wander in off the street, the program for getting these men's lives back on track . . . there just isn't ANYTHING better around and I am truly proud to be a part of it! The money that goes into this Rescue Mission is well spent and you ought to come by and take a look for yourself, you'll be mighty impressed!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Graduates finishing the program and going on to jobs and reentering the work force, reuniting with family, regaining self esteem, achieving relationships with Christ and church members!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I cannot comment since I do not know the difficulties they face on the operational level.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The freedom I've had to work with these men, to introduce them to the teachings of the Bible, to help them apply Christian principles to their lives, to help them find their way in this life, overcome problems and much, much more.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I know the entire staff, from the Executive Director all the way down.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand its level of services to the community and reach out to neighboring communities as well.

Ways to make it better...

I cannot think of anything that might improve the experience at this time.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Raising the funding necessary to keep the high level of service to the community and people that we serve, especially with the economy the way it is.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Thank the public, the churches and corporations for making what the Bridgeport Rescue Mission do possible, since that makes what I do for the Mission possible as well. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
