At The Crossroads
September 4, 2008
I have been involved with At The Crossroads for almost 10 years. First as a client, then a donor, and now a board member.
When I met the staff of ATC I was a homeless youth on the streets of the Mission. It has been an evolving relationship for me and ATC. At no time did I feel as a client that I was being told what to do, they have always held my goals in the highest regard, with out trying to push an agenda. As some one who resists authority and being told what to do, I have found the approach of ATC to be both effective and refreshing.
My experience with ATC is that they carry out exactly what their mission states. They meet their target population at their place of need. This is why after my life circumstances changed I went back to ATC to help them.
It has been the most rewarding relationship I have ever had with an organization. I thoroughly enjoy my interactions with the staff and other board members and I have been able to encourage members of my family and friends to volunteer and donate to ATC.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Clients achieving goals, and finding someone to care about them unconditionally.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The people & the community I have built with the staff, board of directors, and clients.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Totally dedicated to their work, and were having fun doing it.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
change how homeless youth are viewed in our community.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Board Member & Worked with the ED to develop long term planning for At the Crossroads.
