I have worked with the Shine Foundation for about one year. They provide services to residents in a Domestic Violence shelter for people with disabilities. They have been very compassionate and flexible regarding the unique needs our residents face. In addition, they are receptive to working with people who have various income, education, and language abilities.

I've volunteered for few events for Shine and every one of them were much more rewarding to me then what I was able to give in return. I was able to talk to other volunteers and to those we were helping. This organization has a strong cause and purpose. One thing that I found that makes Shine so approachable is how little "red tape" there is. And this makes it even more efficient and useful to those who are in need of Shine's services.

This is a wonderful effort that targets to empower abused women to get financially fit. Programs are targeted to the unique needs of the groups involved and the volunteers are very carefully selected for appropriate background and experience as well as attitude to relate to people they meant to help.
