My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mil Milagros, Inc., Somerville, MA, USA
I've routinely given to different causes throughout my young adult and adult life and Mil Milagros stands apart as an organization, such that I felt compelled to give them more of my own time and energy. The negative things that can come up with non-profits, not playing well with each other, swooping in and then departing before the persistent problems are addressed, and short-circuiting local development and motivation through hand outs- none of that is in play here. Their work is in respectful, strategic collaboration with other non-profits and with the communities they serve. Their work is about fundamentally changing lives and that is what they are accomplishing. I feel fortunate to be able to support the important work they do, building community capacity and the capacity of women and children to alter the course of their lives for the better.
