I have been involved with several organizations as a volunteer, and they were and are all great, but getting together with SHANTI and its Staff, its Clients, and fellow volunteers has rekindled a desire to go just that extra in helping those who at the moment need a hand. Kudos to all who built this organization, and to those unselfish volunteers who give so much of themselves, it is my pleasure to work by your side.

The Great!

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

the Clients it has served over the years, the history it has, the reputation for its excellent and caring legacy.

Ways to make it better...

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

not change a thing, you don't mess with a good thing.

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

the Staff and its volunteers.

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

some of the best you could gather up.

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

do soooooooooooo much good in the community

Ways to make it better...

..... That is a strange question, I can only say,"My experience could not have been better".

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

keeping up in the face of dwindling funding from all sources.

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

if there were two of me, both would volunteer without reservations.

SHANTI has changed my life. From the training to the connections among the clients and peers, I am extremely overwhelmed with the fabulousness that is this organization. When becoming a volunteer, I never expected to also make knew friends and become a better person than I was pre-training. If this is what can happen in my life in 2 months, I am only ecstatic of what can happen over the next year.

Shanti is an organization that inspires its workers, its beneficiaries, and its volunteers. The training in Peer Support that I had through this organization provided me with valuable skills to be not only a better volunteer, but also a better listener and a better friend. Shanti seeks to be the difference between zero and one- providing the invaluable service of companionship and compassionate witnessing.

Shanti has been a major role in the San Francisco area helping people deal with HIV and everyday LIFE issues. I participated in one of their LIFE workshops and learned more about myself and how to better educate and take care of myself because of the program. The staff are amazing and well trained and extremely friendly, they also are non-judgemental and great at helping find other resources in the community to assist those who need them.

The Great!

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

Ways to make it better...

I would have known the great impact that the program would make. Nothing would have made my experience any better than the way I experienced it through Shanti SF.

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

Economic crisis with state and federal cut backs in the HIV programs.

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

This organization deserves this award and believes and gives back to the entire community that it serves.
