Review for Carpenter's Shelter, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a front desk and meal volunteer since April 2014. I can only tell you the perspective from a volunteer. The programs and organization is very well structured. I personally like how flexible I can volunteer during certain hours. Once I get my regular job schedule, I simply go to the Carpenter's website and schedule my volunteer hours in. Front desk duties are very easy and if there is anything out of the ordinary, the staff is always available to assist. The volunteer coordinator, Kelly, is awesome as well! As a meal provider, the kitchen is well equipped and easy to use. As a volunteer, you see people and families come and go. The greatest times at Carpenter's has always been when a client talks to me about their future and their plans. Carpenter's provides them that hope that someone is there and that someone cares.
