Shelter Network helped me to get my life back on track. My children were comfortable with the staff and loved the program. I was able to work and save enough money to afford the move-in costs for an apartment. After we moved into our own apartment, my children still wanted to "go home" to the shelter. The value received for my family is priceless. Because of that, I now volunteer and donate regularly to the shelter community. I am also part of the Alumni Association.

The Great!

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

my own life. The day we moved in to emergency family housing with Shelter Network was the first day of the rest of my life and the best day in 2005.

Ways to make it better...

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

Treat the staff to an annual retreat for rest and relaxation. They all work so hard and deserve to be recognized.

More feedback...

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

The ability to seek help and be treated with dignity has opened my mind and heart to help others. This has been a rewarding side effect of homelessness. Being homeless and not a client of Shelter Network would have been a tragedy for my family.

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

Staff and volunteers always were caring and warm. I felt treated as a valued individual. Those that genuinely care about others are the typical staff members or volunteers.

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

Expand it's programs, add services and increase the number of beds for homeless individuals and families with children.

Ways to make it better...

More San Mateo County service providers took the time to help the homeless clients.

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

The organization works wonders and needs the continued, constant and consistent donations and funders to help meet the needs of the many families that are served. Money has to be the biggest challenge.

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

I am grateful for this organization and can't say enough good things about it.
