Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington
November 29, 2010
SMGW is a great organization because not only does it provide assistance with social services, there's an emphasis on treating the participants with dignity and respect. I have really enjoyed seeing small changes in participants' attitudes from them feeling like they cant do anything to feeling a greater sense of worth and power over their lives.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
by seeing participants who are getting jobs, getting into substance abuse programs and moving into apts! :-)
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
work on changing office locations. The set up of the Arlington office makes it difficult to quickly help participants who are on the computers and monitor their activities.
Volunteer & i help people in job search, housing, applying social services, getting identification, into substance abuse treatment, etc.
