Review for Women's Resource Center of Northern Michigan, Inc., Petoskey, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

WRC of northern MI is an organization that truly helped my son and I survive Domestic Abuse. Without their help I really don't know where we would be.All involved in this organization are true professionals. I encourage anyone who can donate what ever they can to help this organization continue to support families in northern Mighigan. They put every donation to the best possible use. I believe we would still be homeless and hopeless if it werent for them.ITS NOT A GOOD FEELING. WE ARE STILL STRUGGLING BUT ARE HOPEFUL! THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELP THEM HELP US!S. WOODRUFF

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

I HAVE ENJOYED THE SUPPORT THAT WAS GIVEN TO ME AND MY SON! THERE IS NOT AN AREA OF OUR LIVES THEY DID NOT TOUCH WITH UNDERSTANDING!

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

THE STAFF IS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND SUPPORTIVE,AS WELL AS EDUCATED AND ENCOURAGING.THE VOLUNTEERS ARE GREAT!THEY HAVE A WARM HEART AND OPEN EARS! I HAVE USED EVERY THING THEY OFFER AT ONE POINT OR ANOTHER IN THIS JOURNEY AND IT WAS SO NICE TO HAVE THEM! I

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

IT COULD SERVE MORE FAMILIES THEY HAVE TO REFER CLIENTS SOMEWHERE ELSE BECAUSE THEY WERE FULL THEY ARE ONLY ABLE TO MEED THE VERY BASIC FAMILY NEEDS. THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE SO RELIEVED TO HAVE COUNCILING,SAFTY, SHELTER, FOOD. THEY CAN"T HELP WITH MORE

Ways to make it better...

I DID NOT NEED IT!

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

THAT MOST PEOPLE THINK IT IS EASY TO ASK FOR HELP! I BALLED SO MANY TIMES DUE TO SHAME AND EMBARRESMENT FOR NEEDING HELP! THERE WAS NO OTHER WAY! THE WRC TRY TO MEET FAMILY NEEDS BUT FINANCING IS DIFFICULT,THE WORSE THE ECONOMY GETS EFFECTS DOMESTIC ABUSE

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

DOMESTIC ABUSE CAN HAPPEN TO ANY WOMEN OR MAN. IT TEARS A FAMILY APART AT THE SEEMS.IT HAPPENS TO ALL CLASSES AND COLORS. IT DOES"NT DISCRIMINATE! WHAT IF IT WAS YOUR DAUGHTER,MOTHER??? SOMETIMES IT IS JUST EASIER TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH CLOSED. I LOST ALL!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & I WENT TO THE SAFE HOUSE WITH MY SON TOTALLY BROKEN
