My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Abused Deaf Womens Advocacy Services, Seattle, WA, USA
I have volunteered with this organization since its inception in 1986. I have over 41 years of work in the non-profit sector and this organization is one of the best I have ever experienced. Their priority is the people they serve; their service model has been replicated in 47 cities in the United States; the staff are paid well and provided fabulous support; and they manage the organization and provide services from a feminist point of view.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
helping them raise $8.6M to build the first accessible transitional housing for Deaf and Deaf-Blind domestic violence survivors in the world.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
How they treat the people they serve, their politics, how they value donors and volunteers, and their willingness to share their experiences and talents with other organizations.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Diverse, highly skilled, and with big hearts.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Oh my God...it could replicate its model in other Deaf communities around the U.S. and Deaf communities in other countries. They could establish an endowment so that the fluctuation in government support doesn't affect their service levels.
