RUTH ELLIS CENTER INC
January 14, 2010

This is an organization that cares deeply about homeless Youth. I have never felt the pressure to just donate money like other charities. The center is happy to receive items on their needs list. That way your money goes directly to helping out the youth. I have a great deal of respect for the staff and volunteers that work with the youth. Sometimes I think their troubles would be overwhelming, but the staff just motivates them to help themselves. It is great that the gblt youth in Detroit have somewhere to turn to, and I think that other cities should follow suit.

The Great!

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

Talking to some of the youth that where taken in, enrolled into school, and shown how to get a job.

Ways to make it better...

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

Have the youth get involved in helping keep the center clean.

More feedback

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

The fact that the kids it helps are genuinely thankful for anything that is done for them.

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

Enthusiastic, dedicated, and motivated

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

Have more temporary housing to get more youth off the street.

Ways to make it better...

We could find the money to keep the center open on weekends.

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

Too many kids on the street to take them all in.

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

No one in the GLBT communitee should have to live on the street because of who they are.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
