Review for Community Grows, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known this group since the mid Nineties when Barbara Wenger first came to the Open Space Committee for funding for Koshland Park. Her perseverance finally wore the committee down and I have marveled at the same perseverance over the ensuing years. THe accoplishments of the group could not happen without a leader such as Barbara and the ,many volunteers who have responded to her calls for help.

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

the revitalization of Koshland Park.

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

probably be exhausted most of the time.

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

the consistency of the all volunteer effort.

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

very impressive.

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

energize neighbors in many SF neighborhoods.

Ways to make it better...

I had more advance notice of some of their activities.

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

leadership succession planning

One thing I'd also say is that...

we need more efforts like this throughout the City.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I supported HVNPG as a member of the Open Space committee as well as a member of the SF Beautiful Grants Committee.
