QRESOLUTION
August 2, 2009

I am the CEO of qResolution. I started this website to help the homeless inform relatives and friends that they are alive. It also serves as a starting point to begin a search for a loved one. The website has evolved into Homelessconnectomaha.org, a one day event in Omaha where we bring area homeless and over 70 service providers together assisted by 1000+ volunteers. From this one day event we have placed 20% of the 800+ attendees into homes, helped them get IDs, cleaned up their outstanding warants, provided them with medical, dental and optical care, given away 2 scholarships to a community college, and helped 76 homeless get dentures and dental work. All The Best, Ed Shada Executive Director Project Homeless Connect Omaha

The Great!

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

Omaha, and it is a moving and community changing event. Imagine, 1000+ new people trained to help the homeless. Now, they tell 3 other people and imagine the changes that can occur.

Ways to make it better...

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

do what I am doing now.

More feedback

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

How peoples view of the homeless can change 180 degrees.

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

unbelievably moved and saw miracles happen.

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

build a facility to provide these services on a daily basis. Think about how that would reduce homelessness.

Ways to make it better...

we were able to get the homeless the help they need and off the streets.

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

politics.

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

please pray and help those less fortunate.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
