As a donor, I have been very impressed by the success stories of real families who have gotten a "hand up" rather than a "handout" from this organization. I have met some of these success stories. SPIN consistently gets people off the streets and into productive lives. They take my dollars and turn it into hope...

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

Members of the business community who want to give back to those less fortunate.

I started as a volunteer in the office of SPIN in 1992. I've been happy to see the organization grow and sustain the wonderful programs it offers to get people to become self sufficent. I was an active board member for many years and am still always happy to help out when I can. The leadership is stong and very professional - all the while serving from the heart!

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

seeing lives changed, permanently for the better.

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

the Executive Director is extremely professional and qaulified - and truely serves from her heart.

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

excellent!

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

eliminate homelessness and make a dent in addiction - while helping people become productive individuals.

Have been affiliated as a Board member and supporter of SPIN since 1997. SPIN is extraordinarily effective at making people self-sufficient, who have practically given up hope on life. The time and commitment made by SPIN (handful of people) yield remarkable benefits to the community.

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

many ways over many years.

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

do all possible to get more endowment monies flowing to it so that it could do more for those in need.

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

witnessing people regain a life for themselves and family members when all looked lost.

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

extrememly devoted to helping others.

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

change the lives of many people.

Ways to make it better...

I were able to devote more time to assist in their needs.

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

keeping sufficient funding up to the need levels.

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

grass roots organizations like SPIN deserve our support based on the results they achieve.
