This is an example of an organization where one can truly see his or her dollars at work. There is an immediate need for Clubhouse Models for brain injury survivors throughout the country, and OP sets the bar extremely high.

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

The members' (those with traumatic brain injury) joy, success stories, and pride when working in the OP Clubhouse located in Millburn, NJ.

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

Work with development staff to update fundraising strategies.

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

Seeing my dollars at work.

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

INCREDIBLE!

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

No one with TBI is turned away due to lack of funds. With $10 million, the organization could accept more members, expand the vocational program, and raise TBI awareness throughout the tri state area community.

Ways to make it better...

I visited the Clubhouse regularly and was able to get more friends involved.

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

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

Visit the Clubhouse! 60 East Willow Street, Millburn, NJ 07041. 973.921.1000
