Reviews for South Suburban Pads

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a board member and a volunteer. It is the joy of my life to see the men and women who would otherwise be without housing, without food and without clothing come into our shelters. We have also bought into the notion that to end homelessness we must put people in a home. to that end we will shortly provide housing for 77 families. I have never been around such dedicated and committed staff, board and volunteers. There is something about being a part of good works.
