My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Bennington Project Independence Inc, Bennington, VT, USA
I work for VCIL, a disability rights and advocacy organization. BPI is an extremely valuable resource for me in that they are able to lend out durable medical equipment (walkers, canes, etc.) for people I work with who only need that equipment while they're recovering. This means that they do not have to purchase the equipment which they won't need long term, saving both the individual and the health care system as a whole money. This is extremely helpful to me in fulfilling my organization's mission of helping to foster independence.
The membership coordinator goes above and beyond when working with people who are potentially interested in the program to make them comfortable about coming and seeing what it's all about. The whole staff practices person-centered approach that recognizes that each person has a specific set of needs, wants and comfort zone and works individually with folks to make sure their needs are met. I am very impressed with the quality of their engagement with their clients.
