I found this organization a few years ago, I had been addicted to drugs for many years and was needed someone to help me stay clean, I attended meetings and sessions. After one year of their guidance and teachings I became a better person and have been cleam for over # years and counting. I have been able to give back by volunteering as much as possible where every I may be neeeded. Thanks to FourWind Lodge I am able to walk the streets with my head up and my chest full of clean air.

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

And am happy to be alive!!!

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

They take the time to work with each individual on a one to one basis.

As a grantwriter who assists Four Winds in crafting proposals to interest funders, I find their work inspirational and transformative for clients. As a result, it is easy to construct a project that is very appealing to potential funders. The Director Onehawk and his staff go the extra mile to ensure clients are getting to best to overcome their addictions, using a variety of treatment techniques, including art therapy. In addition to serving the client, Four Winds seeks to ensure that the entire family is helped, thus earning the top rating from me.

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

that they complete the grant projects in a timely manner and usually over benchmarks.

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

give them more visibility in the community.

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

their enthusiasm for the work they do in helping the community.

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

exemplary.

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

practically eliminate addiction in the Native American community.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to give to their cause.

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

funding, funding and market exposure.

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

they endeavor to do a lot with the resources they have available.
