My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Shepherds Heart Ministries Inc, Jonesborough, TN, USA
I began by building various shelves and cabinets to help the boys keep organized. Shortly after, the Rotary Club of Ajijic and Langley, BC, donated funds to purchase high-end carpentry power tools. This resulted in me becoming the director of the workshop, a volunteer position. The workshop now fulfills two objectives, train the boys in carpentry skills and build projects to help offset operational expenses in Hope House. Now I have extended my responsibilities to plan for future projects, such as the aquaponics system and transition house. This heavy involvement have earned me a place on the Hope House board of directors.
