Review for Twin Cities Community Voice Mail, St. Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

TCCVM provides a basic communication tool to enable individuals to help themselves. The statewide service area involving 100's of local community agencies and serving over 50,000 people since its inception is operated by fewer than 4 FTE staff! Beyond the basic service TCCVM also sponsors several outreach activities important to the health and welfare of its constituency. I'm proud to be a supporter. Keep up the good work!

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

their outreach events specifically: Stand Downs that help veternas/homeless veterans and their families; Project Homeless Connects in both Minneapolis and St Paul.

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

find a fundation or donor to donate money for their day to day operantions including staff.

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

being able to help those who need voice mail the most.

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

current and former users of voicemail, staff and board of directors. Sometimess their friends and family would also volunteer.

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

bridge the technological gap. Meaning provide not just cellphones but laptops to help those who are low income and homeless receive messages and e-mails from potential employors. Soemthing most of us take for granted.

Ways to make it better...

no changes. They're very organized and are usually one of the last if not last agency to leave the events.

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

lack of funding for day to day operations including staff.

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

they are unique and forward thinking. They are always thinking of how new technolgy can also benefit those who need it the most and either have limited access to it or no access at all.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
