DUSTYS RIDERS
August 6, 2009

One of the reasons I love Dustys Riders so much is because of their diversity. At risk youth come in all shapes sizes and colors and believe me Dustys has them all. To me, Dustys is what America is about. Some of everybody. Unless you have lived in the inner city and been catagorized as POOR you may not understand the importance of bringing such a simple program into the inner cities. But let me tell you. Some of these young people may never have gotten the oppertunity to touch a horse if it weren't for Dusty. Some may never of seen a ranch. Some of us take these things for granted every day dont we? I am a victem of poverty myself so I can not donate. I work 2 jobs and I am a community advocate. Like most of America I live paycheck to paycheck. But I do give of my time. Please, if you can.

The Great!

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

The lives of the young people that they touch. One young man was headed for a life of gangs and his parents signed him up for Dustys. Through the lessons learned he was able to see a different road and want it for himself. He is now back in school and doi

Ways to make it better...

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

Run it in the ground. Sarah does a great job. She is one of the few non-profit people who actually run on her own funds. I have seen her put every penny she has into an outing for the youth. She does what needs to be done with out hesitation.

More feedback

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

Sarah Williams is so patient and loving with these youth that I myself have learned to be more compassionate.

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

well trained and excited about exposing the young people to something they never saw before

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

It could have it's own Ranch with several horses and build community leaders out of these young people. They could have a charter school and expand what they do. Sarah is a person with high moral standard and she could teach that to the youth

Ways to make it better...

I would have had some money to spend on food and trinkletts

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

finances. Dustys is one of the best programs around but they don't get much advertisement. Therefor they dont get much money. God, please bless Dustys with the money they need to keep reaching and keep teaching these at risk youth.

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

It's sad how in the non-profit game the money does not always go to the one with the best program. It goes to the one who writes the best grant. Therefore I speak a financial blessing on Dustys Riders. That they be able to keep this program available
