My New Red Shoes is a wonderful organization that is focused on providing shoes and clothing for homeless children in the Bay Area as well as getting the community at large, especially youth, engaged in both understanding the issues or homeless children and helping to do something to make their lives better. It's a wonderful grass roots organization with a huge inpact!

The Great!

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

I've seen the faces and gratefulness of the children and their parents at Back to School parties where the children get their new shoes and gift cards. I've seen the volunteers helping out and feeling as if they got a gift too just by being there and helping. A true feel good experience.

Ways to make it better...

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

Help them to grow to seve more children and involve more youth in their mission related efforts.

This wonderful organization has provided a beautiful message to the young girls that participate in our program, Youth and Family Enrichment Services, G.I.R.L.S Program, servicing San Mateo County, that they have value and significance to the community, regardless of the economic, racial, and ethnic challenges that they face. YFES' serves the most disenfranchised population in SMC, and My New Red Shoes supports our message that each participant is unique, with special gifts to be celebrated!

The Great!

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

their inclusiveness, warmth and care regarding the San Mateo County community.

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

warm, supportive, flexible and caring.

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

Expand. It would be wonderful if a child could enroll and be supported throughout the school year. This support could include a Halloween ccostume, Holiday shoes, birthday suprise, etc.

Ways to make it better...

we had had a chance to meet face to face.

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

continued funding.

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

I am grateful for My New Red Shoes and their continued support of our program participants

I work for a large Bay Area non-profit on the Peninsula, and our organization serves families at risk for abuse and neglect. We often have clients with young children who are homeless, so gathering the resources to purchase clothing for school is sometimes a very daunting task. My New Red Shoes fills the gap in our community by providing the opportunity for these children to feel confident and proud when they walk through the doors on the first day of school. Our experiences with the organization, both this year and last, have been wonderful!

The Great!

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

that they delivered on their promises and helped us to serve so many families in San Mateo county.

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

volunteers make little pouches, individually tagged for the children. It's such a nice touch.

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

friendly, patient, and on top of things!

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

do so much...including helping to clothe homeless children year round.
