Cherry St. Mission Ministries has had a 4-star rating with charity Navigator since the inception of this site. In 2010, with administration and development changes and oversights in fiscal allocation, the 2010 990 had fundraising costs inaccurately assessed, therefore our rating dropped to 2-stars. Since then, working with our auditors and accountants, we have fixed this error in reporting. 2011 and future 990 reports will accurately reflect the correct allocation which will change Charity Navigator's rating to correctly reflect the high standards and program support Cherry Street has always met. Please feel free to email or call me with questions: 419-450-5895 lcunning@cherrystreetmission.org

I volunteer in the Education Center at Cherry Street Mission. Here we help guests prepare to take their GED tests. It is amazing to me to see how many people come in on their own to study, be tutored and take practice tests so they will be ready to take the GED test. These are people who really want to better their lives, be able to stand on their own and take care of themself and their family. It is also a blessing to see how the staff helps in every way possible - with resouces, knowledge and time - to help the guests be as prepared as they can be to take the test. This is a great ministry and I am glad to be a small part of it.

Have now been volunteering at Cherry St. Mission Ministries for a few years. It amazes me the capacity the staff has to meet the needs of shelter and food for the most vulnerable in our community. It has been my great pleasure to get acquainted with the staff and be of encouragement to them as they work tirelessly to make a difference with the individuals they serve. The ultimate goal is not to ONLY provide shelter and a meal but to provide solutions to whatever need an individual may have. The staff is being successful in their quest to not only provide emergency rescue but also restore and realease their guest in victory.

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

Have been able to build lasting relationships with several guests that received services at Cherry St. Mission and are now living independant and successfully!

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

Increase the number of trained staff to guest ratio! I'd need funding to pull it off, but that would be optimal! Maybe volunteers could work shifts WITH the train staff..... But increasing the number of positive role models to guest ratio

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Help volunteers understand the variety of opportunities that exist and after an experience, offer via emal another opportunity. Volunteer retention.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

This has been some of the most fulfilling work to date! Having interpersonal skill and utilizing them where they are so needed!

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Felt like my time/talent/treasure was put to good use! GREAT!
