Review for Child Advocates of Silicon Valley Inc, Milpitas, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Child Advocates provides and supports a valuable and needed service to Foster Care children of all ages. They require (provided) substantial initial and ongoing training regarding what experiences you will encounter, what agencies, in addition to themselves, provide support (and of what kind). They provide counseling on immediate problem situations, tickets to events kids will enjoy, school supplies, Xmas gifts, and numerous other small, but needed, assistances.

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

seeing an improvement in the child's behavior and developing a positive relationship with him.

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

uniformly understanding and supportive.

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

1. secure more advocate volunteers and 2. provide needed funding for advocate children to attend various summer camps and other activities during the balance of the year.

Ways to make it better...

monetary assistance could be provided for expenses incurred by Advocates in support of their activities with and for children.

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

1. obtaining more advocates and 2. securing more operating dollar contributions

One thing I'd also say is that...

there needs to be more awareness made of the purpose and work of the organization.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Volunteer & Court Appointed Special Advocate.
