I learned about the charity shortly after moving to Georgia many years ago and sent donations as long as I had the means to do so. Among the things that impressed me positively about this charity, in addition to its basic statement, were: 1. They do not seem to use professional fundraisers, and have never sent me "free gifts"; 2. Much of their fundraising is done through the participation of Georgia sheriffs themselves in events; 3. They have offered to welcome any donor or potential donor to any of their service sites without prior notice. I have seen that their financial transparency and accountability current get low ratings; but in my experience their service transparency and accountability are excellent.
