My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Wyoming Valley Rescue Ministries Inc, Scranton, PA, USA
My youth group recently had the opportunity to volunteer for a "work night" at the WVRM. We were given a tour of the building and a short explination of what goes on during the week and weekend. Our teens and leaders were moved by the work they are doing. It was amazing to give our group a close up look at somethign that seems so far away for them. Most of our students/leaders come from estabilshed homes where food and shelter would never enter their minds. Our "tour guide" did a wonderful job explaining why they are doing what they are doing. They are inspired by God to minster to the homeless and poverty stricken people of the Wyoming Valley. They are reaching not only people that fit into that category, but people on the "other side" as well. Our group was inspired to be helping out in our home t own right here where people are hurting. We moved from seeing people that are homeless and hurting being a "foreign" thing to seeing it in our back yard.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the change of the outlook of my group.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Give them more resources! They could be open every night and have such a bigger ministry if they had more resources (i.e. personnel, food, space...)
