I first became aware of Bountiful Harvest when my husband served on the board and donated funds to this wonderful ministry. I'm mission's president at my church and I have been able to hold services and actually have some of the women who live there share their testimonies and it is so inspiring to hear their stories, but more inspiring to see their lives change and eventually become independent and living on their own. This ministry is so important to our community because the need is great. There are so many homeless women and children. Also the level of support services they offer is why I believe they are so successful. They offer self-help classes and training on parenting, health and nutrition. They also offer addiction counseling and/or substance abuse seminars. They offer boundary setting skills and job placement help etc. They encourage continued education not only for personal life long skills but for the "whole" person. Each person must seek out a change in their moral character then seek out our Nation's Godly Heritage. (Entered by GreatNonprofits staff member on behalf of reviewer)

Ways to make it better...

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

Keep trying to bring in more staff and board members so my time would be focused on the women. Since this is a nonprofit agency, it is hard to get enough volunteers - They have to spend too much time getting volunteers so they can raise money.

More feedback...

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

Seeing lives actually change. We've seen personally women leave the shelter after being encouraged to find the "skills" needed to find employment and live independently.

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

sensitive to the needs of each individual. They do extensive evaluations on prospective border making sure that each individual is ready to make the necessary changes needed to succeed.

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

provide a lot more opportunities for women and children who need an organization/ministry that truly seeks to offer the skills needed to break the cycle of dependent behavior. This is only done through proper time spent and training for each person...

Ways to make it better...

They had more Board Members who would help organize fundraising so the directors can focus on the women.

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

Monetary. Often the house needs major repairs so they always find financial needs pulling at their time, since there's a few # of volunteers including the two directors who started the shelter. This takes enormous time planning more fundraisers, just so..

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

(cont. from above) they can keep their doors open. The directors have never received a paycheck. They continue to serve these women because they believe God's word to be true when it says "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and and faultless..."
