Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Developmentally Disabled Centers, Disabilities, Human Services

Mission: We support the choices of people with developmental disabilities and their families. These are valued individuals involved and participating in the community, making decisions for themselves. We assist with qualifying for programs that would benefit them and their desire for productive independent living and financial success.

Programs: Since the 2016 purchase of the property on power rd and main street in mesa az, the new 5000 square foot thrift store opened up 8 more employment opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities. Over the course of the year, we have provided jobs and job training for 66 people with various developmental disabilities. As of the fiscal year end, june 30, 2017 we have 57 active ddd members with 54 receiving paychecks for gainful, meaningful, community interactive employment. All have received increases in compensation over the course of the year in coordination with the minimum wage increase in january. Our day program in queen creek has been at full capacity since the beginning of 2017 and anticipate that to continue even as some leave the program for reasons like moving or advancing to independence.

My wife and I drive an hour to Nobody's Perfect to make our sizeable donations, and (of course) to shop for treasures. The surroundings are pleasant, the staff is courteous and upkeep is tidy. We appreciate the unique and benevolent "ministry" of this organization*, as much as we resent the unfortunate lies posted by one "QCcitizen".
I feel constrained to add that his (or her) review has earmarks of a disgruntled former employee, as already mentioned by another reviewer. It's hastily written and shallow. It is inconsistent with other positive reviews and with our own satisfied experience. It ignores the celebrated benefits of Nobody's Perfect; the community loves this agency and its thrift stores! The reviewer further lies about it being "very dirty". As one reads this piffle, one easily perceives the reviewer is in part describing his (or her) own pitiful self.
Hats off to most excellent Phil and his great staff. Nobody's perfect, but you folks come close!

NOBODY'S PERFECT gets a FIVE STAR rating from me and my family. My grandson has been attending NOBODY'S PERFECT for six years and he loves the staff and programs. NOBODY'S PERFECT has provided him with a place for him to grow emotionally and socially. NOBODY'S PERFECT has taught him how to handle money, work, cook, shop and go out into the world and survive. My grandson is a much happier person since attending NOBODY'S PERFECT! Thank you, D. Williamson and staff for doing such a great job at NOBODY'S PERFECT!

I have had several years experience with Nobody's Perfect Inc. I was a ADH home for one very sweet gentleman, who was in their Day Program, this gentleman was nurtured and cared for with the love, as all their clients are, finding any little thing he could do. Watching their clients confidence strengthen and even stepping back a tad to let them try new tasks. I have watched D Williamson, gently encourage their clients to their potential. I have known D for many years and have witnessed her and the Nobody's Perfect Staff's dedication to their clients, while providing customized opportunities on an individual basis. I have had the pleasure of watching this sweet non-profit grow from a few clients to the several locations they have now. Growing from a yearly yard sale to several Thrift Stores. Having a small store inside Gutherie Mainstream, the shreading business, and water store, the toner cartridge program and much more. As I said, everyone is encouraged to learn new tasks ( stepping outside of their comfort zones) and carefully guided to enable more success for their clients. I highly recommend this wonderful non-profit for any clients that are developmentally disabled that truly want to experience their fullest potential. It truly was an honor to have been a part of this wonderful organization.

From my experience as a Board Member and a sister of a person with disabilities, I am very impressed with the growth and continued hard work of Nobodys Perfect. As a non-profit organization, we work on fund raising to keep growing and improving what can be offered to clients.

We invite anyone who is interested to join us at a Board Meeting; just email and we'll let you know the schedule.

Continued donations from the public of useable items for the thrift shop is a great way to assist in the goals of Nobodys Perfect to assist as many people as we can.

Four stars from me because "nobody's perfect"! I feel I must apologize to those who come to this website in order to find out more about us, that they will see how a former employee, that I personally dismissed, has chosen to get even or do harm to our organization. The previous review, where it is not totally false is grossly exaggerated. Unfortunately, unkind words whether true or false must remain posted in these reviews but I invite anyone to come by anytime and tour the Queen Creek facility. You may also view our website to see the other good work we are doing throughout the valley. We are a non profit corporation in good standing with the State of Arizona and enjoy a great cooperation with the Department of Developmental Disabilities.

This place is very dirty, and the C OO D Williamson curses like a sailor at the staff and clients, meanwhile the CEO does nothing about it. They have recovering crack addicts and drunks for employees working with individuals with disabilities with several investigations.
