Review for Teen Challenge of East Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have served as a volunteer with Teen Challenge at the Women's Crisis Center for several years. I must admit that each time I am asked to volunteer, I'm a little reluctant to give up my "day off" activities. However, there is not one single time that I have gone that I haven't come home high on blessings. I cannot sing enough praises about the staff led by Barbara Mitchell; they are not only spiritual, but they actually care about the program. I know that Barbara leads by example and each of them give much more than is required to just "get the job done". Volunteering at the center has enabled me to get acquainted with the ladies going through the program and listen to their stories. This has left me with many memories - some heartbreaking, some horrendous, and some downright hilarious. I LOVE this organization and feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to be a small part of this truly remarkable program.

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

meeting someone whose life was changed by going through the program.

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

Try to get the word out to more people. I feel there are a tremendous amount of people in dire need that don't know there is help there for them.

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

Meeting the women and the staff as well as the blessings I have received.

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

Absolutely Wonderful!

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

Have a better facility and perhaps build a center for men in the Knoxville area. Buy more food, clothing and serve more people in need.

Ways to make it better...

The only way my experience could be better would be if I had more time to have more of them!

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

Constantly not having enough funds and not enough recognition.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
