Review for Hmong American Mutual Assistance Association Inc, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am very impressed by HAMAA. This is one organization that DOES what it says it will do. It is highly responsive to its client community. The fact that most of its volunteers are former clients speaks volumes to the quality of its services.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the numbers of people who come to the offices to get help. There is a high level of trust in the staff and leadership.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get more publicity out about the good work they do.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the dedication of the staff. They are determined to help the clients improve their standard of living.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

mostly drawn from the community the organization serves. They can identify with the clients and vice versa.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

start an endowment for operating funds that would cover virtually all operating costs into the foreseeable future.

Ways to make it better...

there had been more funds to conduct programs and reach more people.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

obtaining and maintaining funding in difficult times without sacrificing programs.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I only wish that all nonprofits were run with the amount ethical integrity exercised by HAMAA.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
