Review for StarVista, San Carlos, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a former board member and CEO and now on a commission that funds StarVista, I continue to see the impact that StarVista makes in San Mateo County. All of their programs are addressing important needs in the community, from helping children who have witnessed domestic violence or in the need of mental health services to supporting families who need assistance with meeting today's challenges. The staff is well qualified and passionate in providing the many services. Everyone I come in contact with in our community respects the work StarVista does.

Review for THRIVE ALLIANCE, Redwood City , CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a former CEO of a nonprofit organization and now a board member, I see how Thrive is able to support and strengthen the sector here in San Mateo County. Thrive provides a venue for nonprofit leaders to come together to network, build relationships with funders, county leaders and other nonprofit leaders. The quarterly meetings provide a valuable resource for Thrive members. No other organization represents the entire nonprofit sector.
