Hold Your Head Up
June 24, 2010

In 2008 when i moved from New Jersey. After a job layoff i decided to take a job in Durham NC with downsizing i was layed off once again. I lost my apartment and ran out of money. ended up in a women's shelter, on their wall was a brochure that said Hold Your Head Up helping women. I called the number and spoke with a very compassionate women Ms. Grady who listened to me prayed for me and then said now lets see what steps you need to take. I now have a great job,house and financial independence. The Founder of Hold Your Head Up with limited resources still gives all she has to give a great soul. I now volunteer my services for the organization.

More feedback

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

is helping the mission of Hold Your Head Up.

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

very dedicated and involved.

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

help so many women and children.

Ways to make it better...

we had more resources but that is the struggle for so many non-profits.

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

Resources allocation.

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

I actually believe in the mission of this organization!
