Review for Womens Resource of Greater Houston, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The mission of financial literacy for women and girls is critical to the economic well-being of our community. TWR is a shining example of business giving back to community and community becoming healthier and a better place for business. This is well-run organization that relies on an army of volunteers to carry out its mission. It is a wonderful partnership between corporate and non-profit. The organization is especially adept at streamlining the volunteer experience so that the community realizes maximum benefit from its volunteers.

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

teaching the basic financial literacy courses. When I see the participants taking in the information and writing out a budget for themselves for the first time, I know I am making an immediate difference in their lives.

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

the personal feeling of accomplishment I have when I volunteer to teach financial literacy classes for the organization. The participants always express tremendous gratitude.

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

intelligent and committed to success.

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

make a significant impact on helping families make better financial decisions and would offer hope to breaking the cycle of poverty in families.
