My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Elizabeth Haven Community Projects, Spring, TX, USA
This is a great organization. I believe the impact of the girls being exposed to life on a college campus alone is worth the time spent making that happen. These young ladies are being given an opportunity I never had. I think if I had this camp when I was younger, I would have made some different choices because I would have known what was really available.
Above the great experience, these girls are learning communication and interpersonal skills to help them express their individual personalities with a greater respect for others as well.
I'm mostly grateful that these young ladies are being provided experiences outside of their current reality and out of their state. The first few years of the camp, the organization stayed on college campuses here in Texas. Last year was the first year the camp went out of state. Beyond recognizing college is an option, these girls now recognize the importance of finding a college which is a good fit for their life, their career pursuits and to find a college which specializes in their major. This has opened up eyes to out of state opportunities.

As anyone who volunteers knows, we may expect to give out and never think how much we will learn and grow from the experience. Being at camp last year helped me to have more confidence in my individuality. I'm still learning how not to people please and this gave me an opportunity to grow in that area.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would like to see this organization expand it's current scope of summer camp to quarterly and eventually monthly gatherings to support these young ladies in education, faith-based experiences, extra-curricular activities and college and career planning. It would be great to see and support them more than the one week during camp.
