Review for Operation Interdependence, Grand Junction, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I founded OI a civilian-to-military delivery system to provide a means to civilians by which they can serve and support our deployed forces without impacting resources. Ten years later, the all volunteer effort continue to serve thousands deployed, their families and Veterans. The OI volunteers get a five star salute for keeping the dream alive!

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

witnessing the civilians take a dream come to life!

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

Continue to increase awareness daily, speak to more groups to work interdependently.

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

being fueled and inspired by a caring nation that are so very proud of our men and womend in uniform defending our freedoms.

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

UNBELIEVABLE! Words can't describe their pride for our Warriors.

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

Serve and support 100% of all deployed forces wiithout impacting resources or causing the mail system to be bogged down with care from home.

Ways to make it better...

More people were aware that sending care to deployed forces is critical and the need to reach more with less.

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

limited awareness. More need to learn the vision of OI so that post service is just as important if not more, so that reintegration starts during service.

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

The American people are caring and delivering such care requires an understanding of logistics and the need to reach the front lines with the least of burden.

Review for SOUTHWEST VETERANS BUSINESS RESOURCE CENTER, Perris, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As the founder, and Marine Veteran of 26 years of service, I created this organization to eradicate the notion of homeless Veterans by 2035. I am also a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business that affords me the means to donate my time, resources and a percentage of my profits to operate the Southwest Veterans' Business Resource Center. Since May 21, 2008, I have opened three centers and signed on 75 Veterans to take part of our 14 Level Reintegration Program where they can learn and earn stipends up to $2,080. It is the support of many that will allow us to achieve our aspiration by 2035. Join us!

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

The SWVBRC is a national organization with a growing online community. It empowers communities to best serve Veterans across the nation.

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

open more centers sooner at one time.

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

It is an all volunteer effort and shifts the Veteran from a cost center to a profit center.

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

professional and supportive in redirecting to available resources.

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

opem nore centers and pay its volunteers for a job well done.

Ways to make it better...

more centers are started across the nation. Outreach is great online and I would like to see more centers in more communities, but it takes more funding.

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

limited funding by the founder.

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

actions speak louder than words and the SWVBRC is all about action!
