Review for Adopt A Family of Marin, San Rafael, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Adopt a Family of Marin for the past 6 years. Of all the volunteer work I have done in my community, church and school, I truly believe that my work with Adopt a Family has made the greatest impact. I know that every dollar I donate and every hour I spend on behalf of this organization will directly benefit the families under their care. I have seen first hand how amazed the families are, not only at the generosity of our many donors, but also by the respect they receive from the staff and volunteers. We truly care about these families and do everything we can to keep them in their homes and keep their children safe. Every year the need gets greater and greater in our community and somehow Adopt a Family continues its relentless efforts to raise awareness to help more and more families...right in our own backyard. I cannot say enough about this organization and truly believe it is one of the very best nonprofits in our area.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my direct involvement with their clients. Once you meet the families and the children and get to know their stories, you know that Adopt a Family is making a huge difference in their lives. Once you see how these families live and you see how hard they are working to keep their small apartment, you know first hand that they cannot do it alone.

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

As fund-raising dollars permit, I would continue to grow the staff to reach out to more and more families each year.

Role:  Volunteer & I have helped in the office during the Christmas rush, delivered gifts and supplies to individual families, made calls to families in need, prepared mailings to donors, and worked on fundraising efforts throughout the years.
