Review for Volunteers Of America Inc, Eden Prairie, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In better times I have given freely to a variety of charities but in today's economy I find myself in the position of needing charity myself. Very few charities manage their funds more responsibly or give of themselves more freely then the VOA. I am a veteran and speaking on behalf of many veterans who find themselves faced with homelessness and an uncaring society the VOA stands out as a beacon of hope. The services they offer to veterns of all ages gives us reason for hope and the positive environment we most desperately need. I only wish the VA did half as much for our veterans faced with homelessness as does the VOA.

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

As a private individual making referrals and as a past donor.

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

Gee whiz! I am not sure what more the organization itself can do - but I strongly believe that more people in general need to know about the work this organization does and the good that they do - I sincerely wish more resources could be provided to them from the general public and businesses.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?

Definitely

How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

Life-changing

How did you learn about this organization?

I have known about the VOA since I served on the BoD of directors for the regional Red Cross in Georgia. I have referred many folks to seek out their assistance and without exception they have all been thankful that such an organization exists.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011

Role:  General Member of the Public & I have been a past donor and I am currently about to participate in a VOA program myself.
