Review for Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter of Davis, Davis, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Our experience with this organization began last year. Through our local church, we became involved after hearing of the increasing needs of the homeless in our town. While caring for these people is a tall order, it is possible to meet some of those needs by sharing the responsibility amongst many local congregations and interested communities. We have belonged to a small group for the past 20 years, and our group signed up to make dinner one night, make a light and portable breakfast for the guests for next morning, and help with transportation needs. Those who stayed for dinner also chose to sleep in the warmth and shelter of our church building. It was a worthwhile and rewarding evening, and such a practical way to make a difference. We will definitely help out again this year.

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

the sense of shared responsibility between many community members. Many people from many walks of life have stepped up to give of their time, talents and money, showing hospitality and concern for others who are currently less fortunate.

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

generous, interested in providing excellent service to the homeless guests, and professional in their approach.
