Review from Guidestar
February 7, 2011

During the past five years I have had the pleasure of coordinating the needs of several Kennebunkport families with the staff and volunteers of Workcamp NE. several times.They are a blessing for our low income seniors and handicapped residents. Because of their effort ,these individuals are able to remain in their homes. The volunteers installed new windows, roofs, ramps and bathroom railings. They replaced rotten siding and painted up homes. All at no cost to our residents.
More importantly is the bond of friendship that has been established. My seniors refer to them as "MY kids" All still display photoes. Some still receive cards and notes just to keep in touch. I look forward to working with this organization. Our residents continue to ask "Are they coming back- even for a visit?" In this day of so much negativity especially concerning our youth- Workcamp NE is an example that there is positivity and caring still in our society.

I have worked several times over the last few years with Marcia and Ken Therrien to locate sites for WORKCAMP NE. This is a wonderful program that has changed the lives of many of our community residents. We have received many positive comments about the respect which the youth workers have shown residents and the quality of work done.

I am the Director of The Fixit Program of NH. Our volunteers, mostly retired men and women, provide minor maintenance and repair to the homes of the elderly (60+) and disabled.
Frequently we get requests for service that my volunteers cannot perform. And this is where the
WorkcampNE has come in.
We have partnered with the WorkcampNE folks and referred those jobs that we could not do. They and their volunteers have performed services to well over 100 of our clients over the years.
I have worked with a few of the different workcamps and found WorkcampNE to be the absolute best. We'd love to have them again.

The Great!

I have found them to be the best. They do everything right. Their supervision of students is second to none. When I speak with others in my profession about their experiences with other workcamps. I am always comparing to WorkcampNE. They are the standard that I measure others with. I have found no others who compare.

More feedback...

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?

Very Well

How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

Life-changing

Will you recommend this organization to others?

Definitely

What is unique about this organization?

Other workcamps have required the local sponsoring group to raise funds for the workcamp: one requiared $12,000, another $19,000. I did not have to raise ANY money for WorkcanpNE to come into my area.
