I began interning at Hubbard House in August 2009 and had a great experience and was overly impressed with the extensive programs and services they offer as well as how professional all their staff, volunteers, and even clients are. They truly provide life saving services, that are needed now more than ever. Hubbard House is a fantastic organization that fosters and inspires success within their clients, employees, and volunteers.

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

working with the Foundation and helping with their fundraising events. Also seeing the clients firsthand and hearing their success stories of how much Hubbard House saved them and helped support them with beginning a new safe life.

I have been a volunteer with Hubbard House for 3 years now. It is amazing to me to hear and see first hand the success stories that come from this agency. Our community is fortunate to have this organization and the services it provides to victims of domestic violence. The caring staff are truly inspiring!

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

the events I have volunteered at where I have met former clients of Hubbard House. It is wonderful to see them flourish in their new violence-free life.

I just completed an internship at Hubbard House where I worked in the Development Department. I helped primarily with raising money for the annual Golf Tournament. I also worked in PR. This experience really helped open my eyes further to the service that Hubbard House provides for women and men. It provides a safe haven for people escaping domestic violence. It also provides education which helps identify domestic violence, educates youth at an early age about domestic violence and serves in an advocacy role in the community. The staff are very passionate about helping these victims not only escape but change their lives. It was very touching for me to occasionally ride the elevator with women who were staying at Hubbard House. It was sad and encouraging at the same time. This is a wonderful organization that provides a much needed service in Jacksonville.

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

Becoming more aware of domestic violence and its many forms.

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

Create some business models for part of their operations.

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

Learning about domestic violence and the culture of a non profit organization

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

Very professional and passionate about their work. Hard working.

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

Have more available beds/rooms. Have additional shelter in other parts of town. Hire more staff.

Ways to make it better...

I was able to cross train in other areas of the organization.

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

Ability to publicize the cause, fundraising in a hard economic environment.

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

Thank-you for the opportunity to intern and learn.

It's always a wonderful experience to participate as a volunteer in the annual dinner & auction before the golf tournament fund-raiser. Over the few years I've volunteered in this capacity, there has been a growth in the professionalism & effeciency in handling the guest check-in and auction check-out. It's a wonderful cause!

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

I've witnessed an amazing growth & evolution in this organization, since it occupied a single house to its amazing new facility. They've greatly expanded their outreach into the community in "preventative" education, & added a great new thrift store, too

For s long time I volunteered at the shelter every Tuesday in the childcare center. I also volunteered at the womens support group. That was a very rewarding experience for me to see the women grow from week to week. It also helped me to deal with some of my own feelings regarding my personal experiences. I am a childhood survivor of domestic violence and my sister was killed by her abuser so the cause is near and dear to my heart.

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

Learning to share my story to hopefully empower others and I actually had a book published which tells my story.
