My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for American Special Hockey Association, Crofton, MD, USA
If I hadn’t met the families and administrators of ASHA, I’d have thought it all sounded too good to be true.
Both in casual conversations spanning many years, and during interviews for a freelance article a few years ago, I’ve had the honor of getting to know the folks who run ASHA and those who participate as players and volunteers. Forgive the cliché, but this program truly embodies doing the Lord’s work. It benefits the players by teaching teamwork, structure, and inclusiveness. It gives them opportunities to earn all sorts of victories -- very few of them measured on a scoreboard. And as the players themselves put it, the program is fun.
For the parents, ASHA is invaluable. The ones I’ve met all described the program glowingly. They said it has been life-changing for their kids. Most also said ASHA offers an unrivaled and unparalleled experience both for them and for the players.
As for those running the program, there aren’t enough superlatives to properly credit them.
ASHA is the Stanley Cup champion of nonprofits!
