Review for TRIANGLE RESIDENTIAL OPTIONS FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSERS INC, Durham, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm actually a staff member at TROSA so I don't want to misrepresent myself. I moved from California to North Carolina 9 years ago to work here. There is no place on earth like TROSA. While it isn't for everyone and is very strict and rigid, it is a lifesaver for those who really want to change their lives and are willing and able to work hard to obtain a great life for themselves. TROSA is truly one-stop-shopping. We Provide medical, dental and mental health care and treatment. We use a combination of evidence based practices in substance abuse treatment and confrontation and accountability to encourage people to live in the world and become upstanding neighbors, family members and co-workers. While some rehabilitation is practiced, there is an equal amount of habilitation. I've been in this field for many years and am so proud to say I'm part of the staff at TROSA. Sandie Alger

Review for A Miner Miracle, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with A Miner Miracle for almost 6 years now. It is an amazing organization that provides an un-thought of and very critical service for a lot of men and women who would never get a job and be independent and empowered were it not for this organization. Iʼve done it all at A Miner Miracle, worked in the office, worked the fundraising sales, talked to and encouraged the clients and staff members alike. I recently moved from San Francisco to North Carolina and wish there were organizations like A Miner Miracle here to help people coming off welfare and out of programs learn to dress and present themselves for job interviews. Anywhere that poverty exists, A Miner Miracle needs to be. The Miracle is major in the lives of these men and women.

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

The amazing transformations.

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

Excited and enthusiastic

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

open satellite agencies all over the country and help many thousands of men and women transform their lives.

Ways to make it better...

There was more money for the clients and less energy had to be expended fundraising to keep it going.

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

Finding competent and dedicated help at the salaries a nonprofit like this is able to pay.

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

It is definitely a labor of love for all those involved with the organization
