My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Sundari Foundation, Inc., Miami, FL, USA
I first learned about the Lotus House in 2007. I volunteered there for part of a semester for a project in my Women & Leadership course. From my first visit to the property, I was moved. The environment and atmosphere was a calming one, especially in a neighborhood like Overtown. After my semester project, I knew that I wasn't finished with the Lotus House. My heart knew that this organization was a jewel of an organization, and I couldn't wait to get involved again. With the love and help of the Women's Studies student organizations at Florida International University, we coordinated several clothing drives and volunteered at some of their fabulous events to support the Lotus House. I think that it is important that the women that have the opportunity to partake in what the Lotus House has to offer--whether resident, staff, or volunteer--has the opportunity to experience a positive transformation for the body, mind, and soul.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
they welcome you with open arms and are truly appreciative of whatever you have to offer.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
all so kind. And with such a positive spirit that I haven't seen in any other organization.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
open Lotus House's all over!!! How fantastic would that be for women (and children) in need of attention to their entire being: body, mind, and soul.
Ways to make it better...
I could make more of a time commitment to the Lotus House.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
