Review for Advance Memphis, Memphis, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I got involved at Advance Memphis several years ago, I naively believed that I would have a lot to offer the organization. On the contrary, the organization ended up teaching me and offering me so much. The staff and participants have done wonders to change my perspective about injustice and how to love and serve our under-resourced brothers and sisters. In my opinion, the greatest thing about Advance is the high standards that are set by the staff and the example that they are for the participants. The result has been a culture of excellence. Everything they do, they do thoroughly and do it well. There needs to be more groups like Advance, chipping away at systemic poverty - one relationship at a time. Best of all, everything they do is through the grid of a Gospel worldview.

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

not change a thing.

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

watching it grow!

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

the best around. They are there for a reason and truly love their constituency.

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

focus more on development and less on having to raise funds. It can transform Memphis without $10M bucks...think about what it could do with $10M bucks.

Ways to make it better...

More people outside the neighborhood would take the time to visit and see what an impact is being made in 38126.

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

Donors that just write a check but don't show up and get involved...I'm as guilty as anyone.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
