Review for Good News Partners, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Good News partners is a wonderful organization. Bud Ogle has spoken at our church and is a man filled with passion for helping those in need, always looking for the best opportunity to make that happen. My personal experience has been primarily with the New Life Women's shelter. We have gathered with the residents both at our church and at the shelter. The staff is organized and gracious of our efforts. The shelter is clean and the women appear to take great pride in the personal space the shelter provides them. All appeared well cared for and the children are happy and playful. A real sense of community can be felt when in the presence of this group.

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

Hearing the stories of women who are living at the shelter who feel blessed beyond words by the compassion, support and assistance, the shelter has provided them.

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

Getting to know these women, knowing that their basic needs are being met for this time so they feel HOPEFUL about their future and motivated to move their lives forward in a positive direction. It is so inspirational.

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

Kind, passionate, committed, organized and very gracious and grateful for our efforts to connect with them and the residents there.

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

Help so many more people!! Good News does things right - always looking at the long term: how to make the biggest impact for the most people by doing their homework, thinking things through, planning ahead and then reaching out for help.
