Review for Developmental Disabilities Service Organization, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I loved working with the consumers and seeing the creative process of the Audio Podcasting class at Employment Plus (a program within DDSO). It was great to see the consumers light up when they heard their voice after recording as well as getting them involved in the editing process. I love seeing the consumers filled with confidence as well and experiencing the potential they have within them, that they might not have realized before.

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

I was working with a gentleman who was intimidated with being recorded. I had the opportunity to encourage him to try something new and the recording turned out to being one of the best recordings of the podcast. The gentleman was ecstatic he did so well.

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

not sure.

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

the teamwork, the positive atmosphere and their focus on truly serving the clients.

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

committed, respectful to other people's ideas and caring.

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

more current, updated equipment that would allow them to serve a greater amount of people and open up more possibilities with this population.

Ways to make it better...

the lunch break was longer.

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

lack of funding.

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

compared to other organizations that I have worked with, serving this same population, this is the only program where I have seen the consumers personally grow in such a short amount of time.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
