Review for Buckhead Christian Ministry, Inc., Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered at BCM for 5 years and truly appreciate the opportunity to have a hands on way to help my neighbors in need. The community of volunteers and staff at BCM are passionate about bringing hope to all clients. Through food, financial assistance, clothing, housing, or direction to other resources, BCM lends a hand and heart to thousands of Atlantans in need. I could not imagine a more genuine place to spend my philanthropic time and money.

I have personally experienced the results of this organization in the faces of the clients which we help. The impact on a family if you help pay a utility bill or provide rent assistance, for example, is tremendous. I see the faces of these clients as we change their situations for the better and it is the reason I volunteer at BCM.

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

Expand the life skills and money management classes already offered to perhaps those not in a housing program. The classes are critical to stopping the cycle of poverty, so the more people we could train, the more we could help them change their future.
