Review for Harriet Hancock Center Foundation, Columbia, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is surreal for me to look back on my previous post from 3 years ago to now find myself President of the Harriet Hancock Center Foundation. I am proud to serve the board and the LGBT community in South Carolina volunteering for the Center. The programs and services of the Center are tailored to meet the needs of our local community. Together we make up a family of volunteers that help to make the Center a home for those who do not have one.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

Definitely

Review for Harriet Hancock Center Foundation, Columbia, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As President of SC Pride Movement, I'm a little biased about the Harriet Hancock Center. I have seen it grow and thrive over the past 3 years while living in Columbia, SC. The Center is home for many of us, a safe and comfortable place to meet, volunteer, and enjoy some social time with friends. I can't imagine life in Columbia without the Center!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

knowing that we've made a difference in the lives of not just LGBT people but changed the hearts of a few people around us.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, dependable, and passionate about what they do!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

pay a staff member to help keep it open every day of the week.

Ways to make it better...

I could have been paid for my labors!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

a difficult southern political climate and the ever present struggle to find funds to operate.

One thing I'd also say is that...

THANK YOU!

Review for CenterLink: The Community of LGBT Centers, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The staff of the CenterLink have provided our local LGBT community center with valuable assistance over the years, giving us advice & encouragement at times when we had little idea of where to turn. In my opinion our Center would not be as strong today without the help of the CenterLink.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

energy and excitement that their staff gives off, it is contagious!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

knowledgeable and genuine.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

grant those funds to other Centers around the country and help all of our communities grow stronger!

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & The CenterLink provided me with valuable input & support.
