Review for Catholic Relief Services, Baltimore, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We've been giving to CRS since the first year of our marriage 40 years ago. My husband is a retired Foreign Service Officer and we were posted to Africa and Southeast Asia where we witnessed first hand the humanitarian and development efforts of CRS personnel. They give wisely and ceaselessly of their time and talents and have empowered many poor people around the world. We are so proud to be part of this work.

Review for THE NETWORK, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son repaired computers for non-profits in DC when he was in college. His report: the 40-50 mostly Catholic organizations he worked in, Network made the BEST use of their money. "If you're going to give, Mom, give it to Network. They are so careful with every single dollar, so conscientious about accountability." My husband and I have given to Network ever since.

Review for JUBILEE HOUSING INC, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Many years ago, as we were saving for our down payment on a home, we put away regular chunks of cash with Jubilee Housing. When it came time to buy our own home, we asked for the money back and there it was - pronto! and twice blessed. It's a great place to save.

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

Personal, quick, reliable, faith-based.

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

I've had phone conversations with folks at a desk; they been well informed and prompt in attending to my requests.

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

OH>>>really put a dent in low income housing in the District which would then improve the lives of children and the elderly.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
