Review for Providence Place, San Antonio, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The most gratifying experience I have had as a member of the board of trustees of Methodist Mission Home (MMH) has been to hear the pride and gratitude expressed by its yhoung-adult students when they gradute from MMH's program to give them skills they need to live independently. The students, who have hearing and/or learning disabilities, come to MMH unable to get or hold a job and often unable to communicate with or socialize with others. They leave with a job and with the ability to take instructions, perform work, and get along with peers and bosses. Their lives are forever changed in a positive way with the skills MMH has given them.

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

board meetings and at annual graduation ceremonies.

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

broaden the scope of its invlovement with hearing- and learning-impaired young adults.

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

seeing evidence of the positive changes Methodist Mission Home has made in the lives of its students.

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

dedicated professionals.

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

increase the depth and scope of its services to a growing population of young adults who desperately need help.

Ways to make it better...

there had been more students.

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

accumulating funds for the expansion of the scope of its services.

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

Methodist Mission Home quietly works miracles.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
