Rating: 1

After my family donated a significant amount of money, we soon realized how poorly run and managed this organization is. Their executive director is unappreciative, disrespectful, and alienates its supporters. While the cause they serve is amazing, the waste is apparent at the most important level. I will never donate again after my experience with who runs this "ship". My advice, find another organization who will appreciate your donations. I already have.
