Their staff and board members are really great! I am humbled to see so many people who are willing to go out of their way to help those who are in need.

The Great!

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

their food pantry, counseling programs and the volunteers who were once their clients.

Ways to make it better...

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

institute a more disciplined approach to getting the community involved.

More feedback...

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

the comradery and volunteerism exhibited by the participants of their fund raising events are heart-warming and impressive.

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

kind, patient, knowledgeable and hard-working.

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

1) implement more and better counseling programs and classes; 2) open more shelter to provide temporary help to those whose needs are critical;

Ways to make it better...

even more people in the community participate.

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

1) not enough funding to help more clients 2) not connected enough to corporate contributors and other substantial donors.

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

Thank God for organizations like WVCS!

Kudos to West Valley Community Services, formerly Cupertino Community Services, for its commitment and work in running a homeless men's shelter in the Cupertino, Sunnyvale, and Saratoga area for over 17 years! Faith in Action Rotating Shelter for Homeless Men is a great program which is managed by caring and competent staff at WVCS that has assisted hundreds of homeless men get jobs, housing, and reestablish their independence. I've been working as a volunteer meal coordinator for the shelter for many years, and have loved working with great people from the many community and faith-based organizations that participate. I have loved getting to know the men who have come to the shelter, and am always humbled and inspired by the frank and honest sharing of their personal stories, and their determination to get back on their feet. What has impressed me the most is how the men in the shelter, after having hit rock bottom, seem to see life so clearly, and are able to get truly important priorities straight - better than I can, by far!
