Daystar Life Center Inc
December 17, 2009

I have known Daystar Life Center since the early 90's when I managed the CDBG funds that helped expand its facility in downtown St. Petersburg. More recently, as a volunteer for the Pinellas County Coalition for the Homeless I have been obtaining and managing state funds allocated to Daystar for their homeless programs. I know of no other agency that has done more for the homeless with fewer resources than any other agency around. Jane Walker is a Saint.

The Great!

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

monitoring a reporting on Daystar;s use of state funding in helping the homeless (bus passes, Photo IDs and emergency assistance).

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to get them more money.

More feedback

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

working with the Executive Director - Jane Walker.

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

dedicated, professional and selfless.

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

end homelessness.

Ways to make it better...

I didn't have to make them spend time writing monthly reports instead of doing what they do.

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

increasing homelessness.

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

Daystar in unparalleled.
