My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for HFLA of Northeast Ohio, Beachwood, OH, USA
I began volunteering for HFLA about eight years ago. From the first loan committee meeting, I was inspired by the enormous impact an interest-free loan had on our clients. So often, our loan was the difference between success and failure: going to college or staying home, fixing a car or losing a job, escaping a payday loan (as high as 700% interest) or declaring bankruptcy. There are over 25,000 stories like this in Northeast Ohio! Because the repayment rate is over 97%, the money recycles for generations (the organization is 111 years old as I write this). I can't think of an organization that accomplishes more with less.

Their philosophy of working closely with others and sharing their work makes them a focal point for cure-focused research around the world.
