Reviews for Ragpicker Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I believe in the Ragpicker INC. I have been in recovery for 15 years and believe we have to give it away to keep it. I have witnessed Michele Granruth (Shelly) take her personal time to help the clients at several of the locations. Shelly goes out of her way to help local residents to get clean, and find a new way to live.

In the past several years I have helped get some of the houses ready, and was astounded by the time they took to provide a home like enviroment for clients. The Ragpicker has the nicest recovery houses that I have ever seen.

The ragpicker has a wonderful group of people who all give selfishly to help the suffering addict. Everyone pitches in equally to help one another, it truly feels like family whenever you hang out with the staff and clients.

I have witnessed the beautiful transition that happens when a Addict gets clean in many clients. I have watched women/men come through the doors completely hopeless, and become productive members of society.

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

To open more houses.

The Ragpicker is a new community based non-profit organization that prides itself on giving everyone the opportunity to recover from drugs or alcohol. In most companies before any one will assist you the first question is "Do you have any money?" As far as the president, Michele Granruth, is concerned - - her first question is "Do you want to live a drug or alcohol free life?" For those that answer yes, she and her dedicated staff make it possible to people who would not otherwise be afforded the opportunity due to financial status. The Ragpicker will link individuals and families to direct services that will allow them to recover in healthy environments so that their journey to recovery will be wholesome and pleasant.

I have personally experienced the results of this organization because I work with clients that need social or human services. I refer clients to agencies that can further assist them with their needs. I try to teach positive self-management to clients that are new to recovery. Each and every day I witness the progress that clients make in this program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would not make any changes at all. This non-profit raises the bar as far how organizations should treat clients that need direct care services. The staff go over and beyond the call of duty to ensure that each client has whatever it is they need in order to focus on their recovery. The Ragpicker rebuilds the lives of addicts and alcoholics so that people can return back to their families, jobs, and communities.
