Review for Summer Search, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I imigrated from Cape Verde to Boston in 1996 when I was twelve. I was sponsored over by my father but my mother stayed back. In Boston, I was the mother to my little brother, and the woman of the house. I never had time for myself and felt like I had no family or support. That's when SS stepped into my life and saved me! Summer Search is the family I did not have in this country.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

network (family).

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

my mentors and the family I was looking for.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of more young people like myself.

Ways to make it better...

I stayed in touch after graduation and continued that family relationship

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
