WVCS serves the needs of the community that needs support for housing, food pantry, financial assistance and training. Without the support of a dedicated staff and a corps of volunteers and great many members of our community would not be served.

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

Providing homeless men with shelter each night.

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

Continue its present policies

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

Helping others less fortunate then my family.

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

Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and driven to help others.

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

Provide additional services, housing and support.

Ways to make it better...

More community members would support WVCS

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

Increasing need and decreasing funds.

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

The organization needs more assistance
