THE HOMELESS FAMILIES FOUNDATION
November 10, 2009

I work as a development director at this organization. When I hear or see that a head of household has been employed, the children are able to attend the Dowd Education Center, and the family moves to independence it is like watching a child take their first steps. It is a thrill each and every time. I especially enjoy sharing the news of what we are doing with committed donors and prospects.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching children take those first steps, seeing grateful families being able to celebrate the holidays, watching the satisfaction that the many volunteers have in participating, and watching the teachers and tutors at the Dowd Education Center at work.

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

I am proud to work with the dedicated employees and committed volunteers. Our donors give generously.

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

Enthusiastic, energetic and giving.

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

Place more families in housing and help more with establishing themselves. Hire more teachers so more children could attend the Dowd.

Ways to make it better...

each class could have 16 students rather than the 8 (8:1 required ratio).

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

funding for operations and salaries.
