My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Shelter Association of Washtenaw County, Ann Arbor, MI, USA
I have been a small part of changing many, many lives while employed at the SAWC, including my own. The people who come to us are at their very bottom of everything...no home, no income, no hope. When they leave here to enter sustainable housing, they have all those things returned to them and then some. I began working here as a part time employee, just having left a 25 year marriage and my own home. I was full of fear, but today, because of working here, I am a fully independent homeowner with Habitat for Humanity. I have paid vacation and sick days, full medical insurance benefits, a retirement account, and a living wage. I am no longer afraid. I feel what our clients feel...the good and the bad! We do amazing things here. You give, we serve, lives change!
