Review for LifeMoves, formerly InnVision Shelter Network, Menlo Park, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I started at Shelter Network 2 months ago as a volunteer marketing intern I thought that this would be a way to gain experience in my college major, as well as be something nice to do over the summer. But it has turned into a learning and life experience that I will never forget. I have been privileged enough to be let into the inner workings of this organization, and let me tell you this place is a whirlwind of activity and a well-oiled machine all in one. The work it does changes lives every single day and every day I see greatness happen.
My time at Shelter Network has been more than designing webpages and making things look pretty. It has shown me the massive impact that one organization led by passionate and committed professionals can make. Shelter Network’s staff, volunteers, donors and clients make this an inspiring place, and I am honored that I could spend my summer here. It’s been an experience I will carry with me always.

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

I saw people come here seeking a place to stay and immediately get directed to where they needed to be. I've seen this organization adapt any problems that arise with grace and selflessness, always putting the need of the clients first.

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

give them more money! Shelter Network uses its resources to the fullest and any penny it received is spent in a way that will maximize community benefits.
