The Trevor Project, Inc.
July 4, 2009

The Trevor Project is not only a good idea in theory, it has saved many lives, not to mention my own life more than once. I am so grateful that this organization exists. Without it, so many wonderful people wouldn't be here today. I am so glad that people are beginning to realize that LGBTQ youth are at risk for suicide. We still need to raise more awareness, but this is a wonderful start. The Trevor Project is not only a helpline, they also hold workshops and other things to help educate others about LGBTQ youth and suicide prevention. I really cannot say enough about this organization, it is such a wonderful idea and is filled with such wonderful, caring people.

The Great!

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

the many lives that The Trevor Project touches and saves.

Ways to make it better...

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

try to get the word out even more.

More feedback

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

making friends and making a difference.

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

caring and compassionate.

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

expand and help so many more people, not only on the helpline, but through holding even more workshops.

Ways to make it better...

my life was not as complicated as it has become. I could do more to help if it wasn't.

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

homophobia.

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

The Trevor Project just needs to get the word out even more to help combat the cause of many suicide attempts and deaths - homophobia.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
