My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Caring Network, NFP, Glen Ellyn, IL, USA
I was introduced to CareNet several years ago and wholeheartedly supported the work that they were doing. However, it took a few years for my wife and I to become more exposed to the real impact CareNet has in our community and in women's lives. My wife and I, along with our kids, attended an open house to learn more about the organization: their purpose, approach and values. And we were able to hear the stories of the many client's lives that have been significantly changed through their interaction with CareNet. It's compelling when an organization's mission is clearly communicated and the impact can be seen even by young children: shortly after our open house visit, our elementary school-aged son came down with a fistful of bills in his hand. We have a Giving jar set up in our kitchen and he said that he wanted to give it to CareNet to support the work that they were doing in our community. CareNet's mission is simple and clear enough for a child to understand and support.
More recently, I've had the opportunity to become a board member and have been able to learn more about the inner workings of this organization and can confidently say that CareNet remains true to its mission which began over 35 years ago and does so by stewarding its resources well and treating every person who comes through its doors with dignity, compassion and love.
