My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Precinct One CERT, Houston, TX, USA
I graduated from Community Emergency Response Training in Spring 2017 at Constable Precinct One and know my instructors (HFD, FBI, Constable, CERT, Chaplain), were the best in their fields. Precinct One CERT encouraged me to also join 4 other organizations that help the Houston community, so now I am a well-rounded first responder.
My CERT training allowed me to volunteer with the Office of Emergency Management during the devastating Hurricane Harvey in 2017. The Precinct One CERT team was deployed to help flood victims to agencies. Some of our folks lost their personal trucks.
This is a disaster response group that embraces serving Greater Houston from the homeless to government officials. We enjoy collaborating with fellow CERT teams, Harris County, the City of Houston, Precinct 1 Constable, and places of worship to provide support for community festivals/parades, marathons, back-to-school/toy drive events, emergency response training, and disaster rescue and recovery.
As the fourth largest city, filled with disaster opportunities, we aim to have every Houstonian ready and wise to prevent issues and recover quickly.
When you are taking on great responsibility saving others, you bond like a family and celebrate the bravery and victories. See pics below.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Recruit a volunteer Fundraising Director to cover the organization's operational expenses. We need a wish list for supplies and gear that will help us to save lives.
Review for Ars Lyrica Houston, Houston, TX, USA
Vibrant group to volunteer for and the perks are great. Meet intelligent musicians from around the USA and learn about their passion for sharing classical music in a contemporary setting. Baroque and opera fills your heart with God's gift of the arts.
