Review for INTERFAITH ROTATING WINTER SHELTER OF DAVIS, Davis, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I look forward to sharing my time with guests at the Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter. Volunteering in this way is so meaningful to me. I know that I learn something from each guest that strengthens my faith and when I see them satisfied with a good meal and a clean sleeping bag in which to sleep, I know my time is well spent. I have come to know something about homelessness that I never knew before and hope to be able to continue giving my time to this endeavor. It is very well worth every moment!

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

The ability to get to know our guests and understand better what the homeless go through.

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

gracious, kind, understanding and willing to go the extra mile.

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

provide workshops that would hoefully reduce the nubmer of homeless through education and preparedness for returning to the community.

Ways to make it better...

A in all new endeavors, each year we improve on our experiences and this being our third year, we have come very far. Next year will be even better and hopefully members of the City Council and our neighbors will recognize the good that is done our guests

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

relating to neighbors and members of the City Council

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

I would like to see us invite member os the City Council and neighbors to volunteer in a way that creates a better understanding of our intentions.
