I have been affiliated with NextStep since 1999. During that time I have watched hundreds of community members change their lives as a result of being part of this amazing organization. David (names changed, of course), a wonderful man with fairly significant disabilities, who gained confidence and experience that allowed him to find full time employment. Rick, who travels through life in a motorized wheelchair due to severe CP, who worked at NextStep countless hours to procure computers for himself and his family members. Angie, who came here on TANFF, no confidence whatsoever--and now works as a computer technician. I could go on and on. NextStep is a community of caring and committed folks who go the extra mile for each other.

I have volunteered for NextStep since the very beginnings, in 1999. What a place! Amazing. Everyone who comes for a tour is completely blown away. Wonderful staff, committed volunteers, incomparable results. NextStep keeps Lane County's ewaste out of the waste streams all the while giving people jobs, providing job and social skills training, and a "home" for some of Lane County's most marginalized members. Absolutely incredible.

The Great!

terms of how transformed people are after having been trained there.

More feedback...

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

watching the way people thrive there, as well as all the invaluable environmental preservation work being done by everyone--and how proud they are of their work!

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

The staff go out of their way to treat people with care and respect. The training they provide is top drawer--it really, really matters to them that the people who come their for training get their best efforts.

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

Expand to Portland and provide similar services there. Expand the warehouse in Eugene, including a specialized training section for groups of folks who need a more "protected" training environment. Raise everyone's wages by 20% and hire more staff.

I love NextStep. As a former employee of Goodwill I used to be appalled at the amount of T.V's and other electronics that would go in the trash. NextStep provides a valuable resource to the community and our planet! Not only have I donated several car loads of electronics and monitors, but also bought a computer there over a year ago and it is still working great!!

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

Do a lot!!! Keep hazardous waste out of the landfills. Provide underfunded schools, families and third world countries with computers to help them stay up to date in a technology based world.

Ways to make it better...

I hadn't had to pay $45 to recycle 3 monitors, but with Oregon's new law requiring them to be recycled that no longer exists. I also wish they recycled batteries for free, instead of me having to take them to the battery store that does it for free.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
