Board Member

Rating: 5

Served as a board member in the past - was very proud to belong to the organization - they served many clients - passed on numerous tips to law enforcement and did exactly what they aimed to do. The organization was modernized both in computer technology and tip management and in operations, by a then all volunteer board which has allowed them to hire an executive director to manage operations. Great progress in a very short period of time.
