I lived in Marin County for over 30 years and have always had the highest regard for Ritter Center. They help locally for those in need get back on track to get the necessities for living, medical help and provide a very valuable service to the community for low income folks as well as the less fortunate homeless. Ritter house wastes no money and is on a tight budget and does a fantastic job of reaching out to get funding to help further their mission. I give them a AAA rating!

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

Marin County as a donor and visiting the center to see their support staff and services at work.

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

Figure out some way they could expand their fundraising capacity to serve more people.

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

The people working there as well as Board members and their committment.

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

The Best! Committed and knowing they make a difference.

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

Possibly expand to include shelter for the homeless and less fortunate to get back on their feet with training facilities and more medical services.

Ways to make it better...

I think if they had more funding, they would be able to do more to get the homeless better served.

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


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

These folks deserve a real pat on the back from the staff work and volunteer to the entire Board. They have done a marvelous job with very little funding.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
