INTERFAITH ROTATING WINTER SHELTER OF DAVIS
December 22, 2009

The IRWS of Davis is one of the most impactful community efforts I have ever seen. It is truly amazing to see people and families from all walks of life participate in the provision of shelter and hospitality for the underserved homeless in our community. I look forward to every time I am able to encounter guests and fellow volunteers who have become friends to me. I feel extraordinarily blessed to be a part of such an inspiring organization.

The Great!

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

seeing guests feel safe and supported upon entering the shelter. I have first handely seen what happens between guests and volunteers when both parties show up.

Ways to make it better...

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

be able to pay staff to have more consistent coverage.

More feedback

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

meeting the guests and the volunteers on a personal level. Enjoying dinner and conversation with friends.

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

incredibly compassionate, thoughtful, giving and selfless

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

save the world!

Ways to make it better...

I was more experienced

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

not having enough volunteers.

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

I am so thankful to the IRWS for the oppurtunity they have given me to help serve the homeless.
