I run a non-profit and is Circulo De Amigas an excellent example of how to effectively run a non-profit organization. I can use their model to help my organization and to have ideas in how best to expand into other areas. Additionally, the labor of love by the volunteers and the passion of the organization are phenomenal. Their purpose in helping those in need in such desperate areas is a godsend!
