Review for weSPARK Cancer Support Center, Sherman Oaks, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Wespark continually lives up to it's mission statement. I have worked for, and been affiliated with non-profits for over 25 years and I am moved by the dedication, compassion, and desire to truly serve their "guests" needs. The work done at Wespark is life altering for all of those involved, including the service providers. I would highly recommend this non-profit to anyone.

I have watched guests at Wespark become empowered and better abel toadvocate for them selves. They develop skills necessary for where they are on their cancer journey; whether as survivor, a caregiver, or someone in grief as a result of regular attendence to the services we provide for mind, body and spirit.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If this organization had a larger budget, it could offer even more services and branch out to other areas in our community.

I have seen our guests come in devastated by Cancer and feeling all alone. Once they get involved they make friends, get support, learn constructive ways to handle the stress and anxiety associated with Cancer. I see huge changes as they relax and connect

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

The care and concern for the guests at Wespark that go into all the decisions made within the organization.

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

The staff and volunteers really care. They are kind, compassionate, and provide service because they really want to and it shows.

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

Own it's own building which could better serve the guests by being able to expand and grow their services and the staff who provide them.
