My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Homeless Empowerment Program (HEP), Clearwater, FL, USA
I volunteer in the Learning Center at HEP on weekly basis during the school year. I help with homework, talk with the kids, and help them with their community service projects. They send cards and pictures to the USO, the Ronald McDonald House, and the Children's Cancer Center. In 2008 they held a golf tournament to raise money so they could give back to their community. In 2009 they got involved with the Relay for Life and they decorated luminaria bags, participated in the Kids Walk, and cleaned up after the event. In 2009 they sponsored a young boy that had a heart transplant and wanted to go to golf camp. Working with them several times a week and seeing how generous they are with their time and good works is very touching especially considering their situations. Its very rewarding to see the children learn and grow as they attend the Center each day.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing families graduate from the program by becoming self sufficient again.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
working with the children and seeing them grow.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
loving, dedicated, hard working, and probably underappreciated by the community.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
help even more people and continue their hopes of having more housing and special programs.
