My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Arthritis Foundation Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, USA
I originally got involved and volunteered last year with the Pittsburgh AF as part of my company's sponsorship. I have since continued to volunteer for both my company and on a personal level. My experience with the current staff has been and continues to be fantastic. I find the staff to be very dedicated, educated and very hard working.
They are always looking for more and better ways to be successful, always looking to grow their events. They have been very open to both suggestions and feedback. They brainstorm prior to events and gather post event to discuss openly what went well, what didn't go well and what they can do better. They also have provided education, assistance and support to some of my clients I've referred that are currently struggling with arthritis. They took the time to outreach to my referrals and become a resource for them.
My experience has been unquestionably positive.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my personal stuggle with OA as well as the support they provide to people I have referred to them. I receive the AF newsletters that provide excellent information, suggestions and education to help anyone that struggles with arthritis. Other's that I volunteer with have also shared stories of impact and have continued to volunteer their services because of those positive experiences and relationships shared.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
like them to be able to have more interns that could help with a lot of the preparation and busy work. That would enable AF to utilized everyone to their greatest strengths and skill sets.
