NORTH HILLS COMMUNITY OUTREACH INC
February 3, 2011
NHCO consistantly uses talent (minimal staff and hundreds of volunteers) and resources (donated space, donated goods, cash donations) In my personal experience with the agency, I've witnessed moms complete their GED's (and move on to other training/education programs) and college degrees (and go on to career positions), unemployed individuals get necessary energy assistance to get them through the tough times and avoid utility terminations, and seniors receive transportation and shopping services that allow them to remain in their own homes with dignity. All who volunteer truly feel their talents are well-utilized and that they truly make a difference.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
working with members of my local community as a volunteer and in receiving energy assistance as a client after losing my job with another non-profit.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Expand their service area to better serve residents of the North Side of Pittsburgh.
Professional with expertise in this field & I helped local residents receive Dollar Energy grants.
