I'd like to think On-the Rise is the better shelters in the greater Boston area. It is relational, staff there are an interesting mix, just as the clientele. . Overall this drop in for women rates one of the best attributable to Susan. I have also many not so good reasons for on-the rise but that's inconsequential as of this review. .Miss Susan, as the organizations go to person and reasonably , affable and genuinely sincere woman of character is perhaps the organizations best representation of transparency.. Although you might have already gathered that buy the organizations brochure. This review might sound fluttered at best, the future of this organization would perhaps be most valued with a partnership of two or more shelters. Thus far, this women's shelters future planning provides a sound financial context in an accomplished environment. Due to the not so-certain fiscal cliff and political unsuitability On-the rise should look for a future of purchasing more properties for homeless women and those and for-profits and or hybrids that foster a helping hand to women in need.

I enjoy gardening and know how important the garden is to On The Rise. The garden is a place to remember women in the community and in OTR's community whom we have lost due to homelessness. It's important this space is clean and well maintained so people can visit and reflect. I have also volunteered at the Prepare For Winter Dinner. This event raises approx 15% of OTR's annual budget and they can always use helpers to orchestrate the evening. It's an inspiring event, too!

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

being able to do something I enjoy and give back at the same time. Lanscaping and garden work is expensive; I'm happy to do this for free b/c I know what the garden means to OTR. I'm impressed that OTR honors women they have lost due to homelessness.

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

Very friendly and helpful in getting me started on my projects. It seems like a great group of women helping other women!

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

Expand its services or expand upon what already exists at OTR to the women who come each day. I'm sure OTR would love to hire more staff to help the hundreds of women who visit OTR each year.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
