NEXT DOOR
September 24, 2008

Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence is an impressive organization. They are changing the way the general population views Domestic Violence. Not only are they helping victims in the moment, but they are making great strides in educating the public about D.V., which will go a long way towards ending the cycle for all time.

The Great!

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

nearly every woman served.

Ways to make it better...

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

work on decreasing employee burnout, as it is a very stressful job.

More feedback

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

building strength in the individuals I worked with and having a chance to really make a difference in someone's life.

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

incredibly knowledgeable and wonderful to work with.

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

change the lives of millions of victims of D.V. for the better.

Ways to make it better...

there were more homeless shelters specifically for victims of D.V.

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

how to decrease employee turn over, and perhaps how to pay employees better so that they are able to stay longer.

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

this is a phenomenal organization.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
