Review for Interfaith Shelter Network of San Diego, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

During the 10 years I have been involved with the San Diego Interfaith Shelter Network I have visited with many individuals in transition. The most poignant are families, sometimes where the adolesant children are in reality the caretakers for the parent(s). Through the efforts of the various case management agencies these families and individuals are given the opportunity to make a better life and many do, transitioning into more stable housing, pursing education and finding employment. In addition, the children continue their education, sometimes at a great effort.
The volunteers, who serve as overnight hosts and/or provide meals, gain at least as much as they give. Many return year after year. Truly this program has changed lives for the better.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011

Role:  Volunteer & Coordinator for 2-week program at church.
