I continue to donate to this organization each year because they produce results. I have met most of the staff members, and they strike me as very motivated to achieve the organization's goals. They do excellent work with what seems to be a low overhead and lean budget. I am also impressed by their genuine decency; they work well with other organizations and don't set themselves above others doing similar work. The leadership is very knowledgeable.
