Review for Nazareth House Apostolate, Taylorsville, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I feel that NHA is one of the few nonprofit organizations worth supporting for a few reasons:
1. Every cent raised goes toward the goals set (no money is spent on high salaries for officers).
2. Even without having any credit for the work being done to fight ebola in Sierra Leone, NHA continues the fight.
3. Fully funding a school for children from the area and having such a high standard and achievement is getting wide recognition and numbers are growing quickly.
4. Have started a community garden that is not only feeding locals, but also teaching them to self support themselves.
5. Spending money raised in Sierra Leone to estimulate their economy and employ locals.

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

Try to find a way to reach more people and let them know about the good work that's being done.

Review for Nazareth House Apostolate, Taylorsville, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known Father Seraphim and Vicki for over 10 years. They have become such an integral part of our lives. Father Seraphim baptized my children, traveled from Kentucky to our home in Georgia to give my Mother her last rights, and came back a few weeks later to conduct the funeral services. Without them in my life, I don't know where I would be. The power of prayer can truly be felt when at St. Simeon Skete. As influential and devoted they are in my life, they are just as much so in the work they do in Sierra Leone. Every dollar donated goes towards helping those in need, unlike some other non-profits where only a fraction of every dollar actually goes to those that need it. You know, with 100% certainty, that any donation you make towards their mission work is changing someone's life.

try to get them more exposure for their mission work
