Review for Faith Aloud, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with Faith Aloud's Executive Director for nearly a decade and I believe strongly in Faith Aloud's fills a valuable role in society-- Faith Aloud has given voice to women's religious dignity at a time when much of the morality conversation is about shaming women.

There is no question that this organization's lean operating model allows the most good to be done for women and families. In fact, the Faith Aloud team mobilizes volunteers effectively to serve women all over the United States and even internationally. The creative use of technology allows a Board of members from all over the country-- I am in South Florida-- to work together to support our shared beliefs and common mission.

Women need Faith Aloud. There is no question in my mind.

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

I think Faith Aloud needs more staffing in the "storytelling" department. I believe the stories Faith Aloud staff and volunteers share from the women they serve are so poignant they could change the national morality conversation. Storytelling staff include grant writers, political outreach directors, marketing managers. I believe that everyone needs to know what this small nonprofit based in St. Louis, MO, is accomplishing so that the conversation can change.

Review for Faith Aloud, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In the past year or so, Faith Aloud has grown exponentially and has increased its impact so that it serves women nationally. This isn't a "national organization" in name only-- in the past year, Faith Aloud truly has supported women in nearly every state (and even other countries!), reached out to clergy in a spectrum of denominations, and supports clinic staff who will, in turn, serve thousands of women.

Even though I moved geographically far from the Faith Aloud headquarters, I am informed, involved and my passion for Faith Aloud's mission has not waned. One of the many things Faith Aloud manages well is communications on a tech-savvy and personal level.

In every way, Faith Aloud is a professional, outstanding nonprofit organization and the leader in its field.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

... outstanding communication and witness to its growth!

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

... shout from the mountain tops that Faith Aloud is the premiere faithful and religious supporter reproductive justice! Faith Aloud is the organization you should join!

Role:  Board Member & I have gone from intern to staff to volunteer Board Member. What a delightful journey!.
 

Review for Faith Aloud, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Board of Directors and staff of Faith Aloud (previously, of MORCRC) are pioneers with sense; they respond creatively to the needs articulated by women and clinics and provide a public service in a way no other nonprofit has. Executive Director Reverend Rebecca Turner is a trustworthy, resourceful and innovative leader and her enthusiasm and compassion are mirrored by the volunteers, staff and Board of Directors. These are the experts, the leaders in the reproductive justice field. There is nothing quite like Faith Aloud, and certainly nothing so expertly run.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

... my career! Rev. Turner hired me as an intern and gave me every opportunity to learn about reproductive justice, nonprofit management, religion, social justice, Missouri politics... not every young person learns leadership hands-on. Thank you.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010
