My name is G. Smith. I came to Metamorphosis 7-10-03, already having 8 months clean. Within this atmosphere of trust, recovery, and friendship,I found recovery. I now have over 5 years here clean and sober, over 6 overall. The leadership, is strong and down to earth, always keeping recovery first. This organization takes people that most of society have no use for, indeed, are in a very bad place in their life and need a break. Metamorphosis gives them everything that they need to get back on track to either rebuild or start a new life.
They take them in from off the street literally, from the street, carrying their belongings in bags. Sometimes their state of health, or lack of health, can be told just by looking at them.The people who come here are disadvantaged, low income, sometimes pregnant, on parole, or, probation looking for a chance.
This place is first and formost a recovery program for those who want to start a new life, but also this is that chance. Here they can build a life. One of recovery, sanity, healthy interaction with peers, a quality life, one worth living. This place is not funded by any outside agency or anybody at all. It is consiantly hampered by budget constraints. We are allways on the lookout for donations which are tax deductable. I know because I serve as House Mgr.at the intake house. There have been several clients that have gone on as an ongoing sucess storys. I am proud to have had the chance to have been here, at this time, with this organization that does so much for others without praise or reward or pay/salery.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Organize it differently- more disipline is needed toward client behavior.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
I get a chance to give back with out expecting anything.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Professional and supportive.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Hire Counselors,buy needed equipment.
Ways to make it better...
If I was younger!
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
Getting more licenced counslers which can happen when they can be PAYED.
Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
