Review for The Arc of San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Arc of San Francisco is a mission driven organization to serve clients with disabilities. Until you see the joy, freedom and respect this organization's work brings to so many clients it is difficult to understand the importance of The Arc. After seeing the dedication from the staff and the better quality of life the clients are able to obtain it is hard to turn away from this organization.

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

many client's life - in small steps like help with medical appointments to big steps like finding jobs and housing for clients.

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

stay the course - they have a very thorough 5 year strategic plan to implement!

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

seeing the independence obtained by clients - getting to enjoy their lives like we do!

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

dedicated, smart, caring and creative.

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

buy apartment buildings to grant more housing!!

Ways to make it better...

there was a stronger advocacy on the state wide and national level for people with disabilities.

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

funding from the state and dealing with a state budget without a powerful voice in the state government.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Board Member & I recently assisted with the reorganization of the household goods recycling program.
