My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Shade Tree Incorporated, Las Vegas, NV, USA
My ministry team, Highway to Hope, has cooked and served meals at The Shade Tree a few times annually for close to ten years. Recently, we expanded the relationship and brought in crews to paint murals, remodel the pantry, sort a basement full of donations and teach a class in resume writing. The vast majority of the clients we have encountered over the years seem very much at ease, and often engage in conversations with us. Although these ladies and children are going through some incedibly rough times, the atmosphere at The Shade Tree is upbeat and calm. If you are looking for a place to volunteer, the enrollment process is easy, and the Volunteer Coordinator, Marian Thomas, is very organized and responsive. Even more importantly, Marian recognizes that the needs of their clients go way beyond the basic necessity of food, clothing and shelter, and she exhibits patience and respect in her client interactions. Highway to Hope looks forward to a continued, fruitful, and always mutually beneficial relationship with The Shade Tree.
