Review for Shanti Project, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Shanti is an organization that inspires its workers, its beneficiaries, and its volunteers. The training in Peer Support that I had through this organization provided me with valuable skills to be not only a better volunteer, but also a better listener and a better friend. Shanti seeks to be the difference between zero and one- providing the invaluable service of companionship and compassionate witnessing.

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

the incredible volunteers, staff, and beneficiaries I have met. Everyone is warm, open, compassionate, empathetic, and engaged.

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

inspiring!!!!

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

grow to impact more live in SF and to reach other urban areas around the US and the world!

Ways to make it better...

the matching process to become a volunteer was quicker.

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

how to continue to thrive in these challenging economic times.

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

Shanti is an amazing and inspirational community of people.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
