I just wanted to say that I really believe that this shelter and the people who run it are doing it from the best place... a true inner desire to help people and to change the world around them. Through my workplace I was able to take part in some fundraising for My Fathers House and also donated a Saturday of my time to help out at a "Thank You" BBQ that they hosted for some of the sponsors and volunteers who help the shelter. I was given a tour and met many of the residents at the shelter. I really enjoyed hearing from people about how My Fathers House was helping them and their loved ones. My Fathers House has helped many people through probably some of the worst moments of their lives with dignity and respect... and allowed these people to stay together as a family unit. I can't imagine anything more important when a family faces adversity than to be able to face it together. These people care and it shows.... I'm proud to be able to do even a small part to help them and hope that anyone thinking of supporting this cause will do so. Thanks to everyone involved for proving that people do still care and can make a difference.

OH MY GOSH!!! WE NEED THOUSANDS OF THESE SHELTERS!!! The Love of God is ooozzzing in and out of these doors!!! I am just an outsider looking in, but if I were in need as so many people are these days, that is the FIRST place I'd run to!! The Hosts are the most loving, compassionate, with great sense of humor children of God you'd ever meet. They have followed step by step the Lord calling in this...so much so that they stay at the shelter and have given up their "dream Home" to there children (because they lost their jobs and such), so that they could be on the front lines helping others. Now tell me....how many of us would give up there Dream Homes to live in a shelter when they didn't have to? That's the Love of God!!! They provide so much to help people back on their feet. And I understand that they would like to build another one because the need is so great....I HOPE SO!!! WE NEED MORE OF THESE AND MORE PEOPLE LIKE CATHE AND DAN!!!!

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

Watching the building of the center, having a personal relationship with the people who had the vision to seed this thru and talking with those who live there...Amazing Experience!

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

clone Cathe and Dan!!! We need more of them!

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

The heart of the couple running it...they are truly compassionate.

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

"Over the top" in caring because they know what it feels like!!! WOW!!!

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

Build more of these shelters...share the love of God in everyday needs to so many who are just trying to survive.

Ways to make it better...

I had been homeless and lived there...

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

We need more just like them!!!

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

You would be a fool now to support this shelter!!!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
