My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Riverside, Habitat for Humanity, Riverside, CA, USA
Habitat for Humanity Riverside is a great non-profit organization that consists of friendly employees and volunteers that are willing to put aside their hardships in order to be of aid to those who are suffering in the community due to their lack of decent and affordable housing. They organize various volunteer projects that are efficient and fun from the Helping Hands Project (improving the exterior of mobile homes for the elderly or disabled) to bigger deconstruction projects. While at the Helping Hands projects, I always have a great time painting or pulling weeds with my fellow volunteers who are determined to improve the homes of our neighbors in the community. The staff always makes sure that the volunteers are well taken care of by providing us with water and assists us with our task. HFHR truly involves the rest of the community in their efforts to improve areas that are not as fortunate. Their goals are portrayed through the non-profits programs and employees.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my own community.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
upgrade the materials and tools that are used by the non-profit, but of course, this non-profit has no way of purchasing new resources unless donors in the community are willing to allocate funds for a good cause.

This volunteer experience allowed me to meet many people with kind hearts who sacrificed their time and energy to help the greater community. It also exposed me to the great amount of work it takes to run a non-profit organization.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
This volunteer experience made me feel very great and was definitely a humbling experience that led me to think of the well-being of the society as a whole.
