I can honestly say that this nonprofit is impeccable in its handling of donor goods and dollars. There is no fluff and the decisions made are always made with the client's best interest at heart. If you have ever donated to an organization and wondered just how much of that donation actually made it into the hands of the clients served, this is the place for you. It is reasonably staffed, and they are not overly paid. It has a board of caring and dedicated people who are committed to oversight, and has internal controls to prevent issues from within. The social workers have a heart for the mission and do what they do because they love helping people. There is a very large volunteer force of people devoted to the mission of "Helping Ease Local Poverty." The staff of Matthews HELP Center are the most creative bunch of people I've ever met and they are constantly trying to address client need in new and different ways. They truly do treat each client with dignity and respect. Wonderful place. Wonderful mission. Wonderful people.
