Review for Sacred Heart Community Service, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an outstanding organization with deep roots and a long history of serving the most vulnerable of the San Jose community.

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

working with individuals deeply committed to a larger vision of a community free from poverty by taking care of the needs of each individual who comes through the door.

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

Deeply committed who treat the customers and volunteers with loving and cheerful compassion, dignity and respect many don’t find in their daily interactions with others.

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

Reduce homelessness by providing more emergency assistance.

Ways to make it better...

It couldn’t have been better. The organization pays serious attention to the experiences of its volunteers, evidenced by the fact they have at least 150 volunteers in the building every single day.

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

Finding the time away from daily operations of serving people in immediate need in order to do the long-term grinding work to get decision makers in mainstream systems to make the necessary changes that would reduce poverty.

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

I encourage everyone to come and volunteer and see this place in action. It will change your life.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Board Member & I became a regular donor after my first visit volunteering.
