Review for Operation Nightwatch Portland, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This group provides a safe setting for people who just need to get off the street for a bit. They provide food, a comfortable dry space and acceptance. The visitors can play games, chat, or even just sleep.They are very clear about not exchanging personal information between volunteers and clients and even require attendance at a training session to explain why this is important. The director works very hard to make this place comfortable and safe for both clients and volunteers.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Review for Covenant House, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a regular contributor for many years. Life on the streets is terribly difficult and dangerous for a child. Covenant House sends out vans with volunteers offering a sandwich and a cup of cocoa and, most important, the willingness to listen. The kids who accept their offer are given a warm bed, clean clothes and a chance. The volunteers are wonderful and there are many amazing stories of children who have been helped by their efforts.

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

The stories of kids who have turned their lives around with the help of Covenant House.

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

Save children in other parts of the world as well as the US.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
