Review for Wespark Cancer Support Center, Sherman Oaks, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I know several cancer warriors and survivors that have been helped by weSPARK and their dedicated staff members. They have many programs that most people can't afford or even think of that benefit not only their clients but the families as well.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Review for Homeboy Industries, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hands on intervention, education and guidance for former Gang Members, At Risk Kids, those newly released from jail and their Families is key to the success here. The good works done by Father Gregor Boyle, his staff, volunteers and the those going through the "program/jobs" at Homeboy and Homegirls transforms lives in a way that hasn't been done in any other programs.

Father G and his Homie ambassadors are saints in my eye convincing gang members there is a better way of life. They have incredible success against what seem insurmountable odds.

Review for Wespark Cancer Support Center, Sherman Oaks, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I volunteered for several events and was hired as a temp for a brief tine. It is a warm comfortable no cost to those in need of support, information and help.
I have recommended weSpark to several of my loved ones that have cancer or that have family or friends dealing with it.

Review for Homeboy Industries, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Watching the growth of the young people that are part of Homeboy Industries led by Father Boyle is a amazing. Giving hope, jobs and self respect back to former gang members with education and a chance is what a Great nonprofit in my mind should do. With the restaurant, bakery, apparel company and other industries I believe in supporting this worthy group...I do!!!
