NAMI Boise is a great organization that has helped many families in the Treasure Valley. I volunteer with this group and have gotten to know a lot of wonderful people. The organization has experienced a lot of growth over the past few years but could definitely use more help from volunteers and more donations from businesses and the public in order to continue offering free classes and reaching out to those with mental illness and their families.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the auctions that we've held over the last 3 years.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
find a way to get more attention or involvement from people in the community that can help increase donations that support the programs that NAMI Boise provides.
