Review for Boston Rescue Mission, Inc., Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer with the Saturday morning outreach on the Boston Common. While the day starts early, I find the experience to be highly enriching and fulfilling. Each time I volunteer I enjoy working with a highly diverse and fun group of volunteers. The energy of those that prepare the food permeates the entire experience and guarantees that I always feel that my time at the BRM is well spent. I’m always encouraging others to come and try it out, and without fail, anyone who comes once always comes back.

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

watching the way that those who recieve BRM services are always treated with respect and dignity.

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

grow the physical space. They don't have enough room to allow them to do the work that they strive to accomplish.

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

knowing that my time spent volunteering directly impacts those that BRM serves.

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

fantastic! They set the tone for the volunteers and are always helpful, friendly and caring.

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

feed all the hungry in Boston, provide housing for those getting out of correctional facilities and support a staff large and diverse enough to plan how to change the lives of those in need.

Ways to make it better...

BRM had more money! They are held back by lack of adequate funds.

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

lack of funds, poor physical structure, not enough staff

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

it's heart is always in the right place.
