Review for Innvision Shelter Network, Menlo Park, CA, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

The Shelter Network does a great job of providing interim relief to people who have lost homes and/or are trying to get their life back together. The facilities are clean, and the folks at the front office really want to help. I was there as a volunteer to serve a meal during the holiday season last year, and everyone who partook in the dinner was really appreciative! I even took my kids that evening and they got a different perspective on life that day.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It gave me a perspective on what people who don't have a home go through.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Okay. It was good because I felt I was sharing something I had with more people. It didn't leave a lasting feeling of satisfaction because it's easy to just forget a meal. I didn't feel like I did something that made these people's lives better.
