Review for Wake Interfaith Hospitality Network, Inc., Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Imagine what it would be like. One day you are going to work, paying your bills, coming home to your children and enjoying life. The next day you lose your job. Within a short time your savings is gone, and you are out of options. You are evicted or foreclosed on and have no where to go. The word "homeless" typically brings up imagines of chronically homeless people with mental illness or addictions spun out of control, but I learned 7 years ago that my community has hundreds of families with children who have no place to go. As a CPA, I love for things to be efficient. Wake Interfaith Hospitality Network is very efficient - leveraging a network of thousands of volunteers in over 50 faith congregations and facilities that largely go unused during the week to provide a warm, safe place to stay, meals shared with love, and professional case management and practical help. I can't imagine a better organization to get behind in my community!

Review for The Gay Christian Network, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Through GCN I've found friends and community after years of feeling isolated and alone. First, I developed relationships online, and now that has moved to meeting people in person and becoming true friends.

GCN is a safe place for people to grow!

Role:  Donor & I helped with bookkeeping early on in the organization's history, now I am a donor.
