My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Knox Area Rescue Ministries, Knoxville, TN, USA
From the day I toured KARM, I was overwhelmed with the feeling of "hope" that prevails. Clients are hopeful, volunteers are hopeful, staff is hopeful, the programs and services are hopeful. Who couldn't use more of that? KARM doesn't "just" provide for the physical needs of clients, but they attempt to provide for the eventual transition from their current situation to one of living as normal a life as the rest of us do. They offer recovery programs, social services counseling, job skills training. They are the hands and feet of Jesus in a world so lacking. They offer, to those willing to accept it, dignity and salvation. I had had previously volunteered with an organization that seemed to want to maintain the status quo of those they served, as if to keep themselves alive. KARM isn't doing that. They have many success stories, many former clients are active in the organization, giving back. I can't say enough good things about KARM! Having attended the 50th Jubilee Celebration, I know that I am not alone in my sentiments. BRAVO, KARM! Your efforts help me be hopeful too!
