Housing Opportunities and Maintenance for the Elderly
September 14, 2010

I am currently interning with H.O.M.E. and feel truly privileged to play a role in this organization. They are a truly unique non-profit making a difference in the lives of low-income seniors in the city of Chicago. My experience with the staff has been a joy.

The Great!

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

being able to witness the staff and volunteers working diligently to help low-income seniors live a life that allows them to maintain their independence in a safe environment.

Ways to make it better...

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

hope that they receive enough funding in the future to start their moving program back up.

More feedback

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

how welcoming everyone is to newcomers. There is an immediate feeling that they are there to help people and welcome anyone who wants to fight for their cause

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

Friendly, knowledgable and capable

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

Make an even more incredible impact on the lives of low-income seniors throught the city of Chicago.Seniors coule stop worrying about how they will receive shelter,food,medication,etc.

Ways to make it better...

I could have even more time with the organization.

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

Not having enough funding to continue all of their programs that have been so helpful for the city's senior community.

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

They truly do the absolute best with what they have to work with and are making an impact on this city and its seniors.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
