Review for Buckhead Christian Ministry, Inc., Atlanta, GA, USA
Buckhead Christian Ministry (BCM) is a lifeline for all the people they serve. It provides food, helps with rent and utility assistance and the thrift store provides needed clothing and household supplies. Not only that, but each client is treated with respect and kindness. There is even a volunteer position at the front desk named "hospitality" so each client is greeted warmly and offered a place to sit and rest until their name is called. During this very busy holiday season, BCM provides Thanksgiving Baskets to as many clients as we can. In addition in December there is a Joyous Toys store where parents can "shop" for gifts for their children. These toys have been donated by BCM's supporters. BCM is great!!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the numbers of clients that have been helped. The organization has continued to provide new services (transitional housing, money management, new trhiftstore location, etc.) as the need has arisen and as funds have been available. The fact that BCM provides so many different kinds of volunteer activities is especially attractive - it can meet so many people's need to serve.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
The only changes I would make would be to have more financial support come to BCM so they could serve more clients in need and be able to provide services to prevent hunger to those who need additional food. More partner churches and more foundations, etc. to give to BCM would be the only thing I would change.
