Review for Deborah's Place, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a long time supporter and volunteer for Deborah's Place. I started out working with the women in the Learning Center teaching them computer skills. Then I began working with the Finance Commission and eventually joined the Board. Deborah's Place approach to ending homelessness for women is extremely effective at getting and keeping women housed. In addition the level of fiduciary oversight is really impressive. They make a little go a very long way.

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

The amazing energy and committment of the Staff and the women they serve.

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

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

Deborah's Place has an extremely robust and economically efficient approach to helping women out of homelessness. There's a very long waiting list to access Deborah's Place programs, I'm confident that with $10 mm they would efficiently house many more.
