Review for Hearts of Fire Project, Ojai, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I know Bob Ballard personally--I have attended his exhibits...the drawings he collected from the homeless shelters are beautiful, and thought provoking. I know Bob is inspired to do this work of bringing attention to homeless individuals as simply people who happen to be homeless--not to be relegated to a blanket category or a certain type of person. Now more and more families and individuals are becoming homeless --we ALL need to address this issue--and Bob is right in their helping!

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

seeing the reaction of people at the exhibit I worked at, and talking to people about the project.

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

Have more fundraising events.

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

The warmth of Bob and his wife and others involved with the organization.

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

Very concerned about the issue, and very easy to get along with.

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

Raise awareness around the country and bring joy and self-respect to homeless adults and children in shelters everywhere. It could buy art supplies and musical instuments that could be given to shelters across the nation.

Ways to make it better...

Nothing --It was a very satisfying experience. I felt welcome and helpful.

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

Lack of funding.

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

I hope Bob continues with this project of his--I would like to see him put a documentary of his work on TV or in film festivals.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
