Review for Transitional Programs for Women, Spokane, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first heard of Transitions during college, both Miryam's House and the Women's Hearth are popular places to pick for a service learning project. Coming into a new setting can be intimidating, especially when there's an established routine. Volunteering for Transitions is not like this, as all the staff and the women they help are very welcoming and understanding of others.

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

seeing how the women in the New Leaf Bakery Cafe Job Training Program strive for job skills and make really tasty food!

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

advertise more.

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

contributing to the greater good by making another woman feel cared for.

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

Funny, kind, and knowledgeable.

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

expand its mission from just Spokane to neighboring cities where women and children suffer unnoticed.

Ways to make it better...

I could have spent more time there.

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

funding so that they can expand the awesome programs.

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

if you haven't gone to see one of Transitions programs, go. Go to a New Leaf bake sale, volunteer at the Women's Hearth, or offer expertise at TLC.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
