Project Return, Inc. in Nashville, TN is the best example of what a Nonprofit Organization must be. In a this time of pandering -so called nonprofits in the Nashville Metro area, it is to the benefit of all citizens that an organization with integretiy exists.

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

I have had the priviledge of meeting many ex-offenders who have changed their lives for the better as the direct result of the help that Project Return offered them.

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

Reward their dedicated staff and volunteers whenever and as much as possible. There are so many on the staffs of nonprofits in the Metro area that just work for a pay check, and have no concern for the real purpose of their positions.

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

The reunited of families.

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

The staff and volunteers are the most qualified, professional and concerned that I have ever been in contact with.

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

Change for the better the whole of the Nashville/Metro communities.

Ways to make it better...

If I had a million dollar to donate to their good causes.

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

Funding in order to expand their good works.

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

I can not praise them enough for all the help they provide to those less unfortunate, for the good of Tennesse and the world.
