Review for Project Homeless Connect, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Image a dark cold place where there is no warmth of sunlight and shadows reinforce your greatest fears. As a person you understand what hope feels like, you know what joy looks like but you are unable to achieve or reach these emotions because of the constant darkness you face. Then, you start to see small glimmers of light and feel the warmth of the sun. You begin to feel the blood run through your veins and at that moment you feel alive. Project Homeless Connects comprehensive approach to services is definitely the sunlight for homeless individual. It provides one-stop resources that give any individual the freedom to choose and reinforces the notion that thoughtful decisions matter in your personal well being. As a volunteer at Project Homeless Connect I saw how people are empowered when they make a choice to visit the Department Motor Vehicles, receive a HIV test or discuss possible options for shelter. Project Homeless Connect can give someone the tools to manage their life. On the other hand, homelessness itself is not a choice but a fact of reality. Supporting or offering resources to assist the homeless population does not emphasize the situation but can improve the outlook on life for people. To reinforce homelessness would be not offer services such as Project Homeless Connect and turn a blind eye to the reality that homeless people face. Individuals need to be cared for and shown that people truly do care no matter where a person falls in the ladders of society. Giving a glimmer of light and warmth is unquestionably far more effective then allowing people to remain in the dark.

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

talking with people and how they truly appreciate PHC for putting on these events.

Review for Project Homeless Connect, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Providing specialized services for homeless families with children was beneficial to clients. Parents feel a responsibility to their children and by providing additional or separate resources can truly give a parent the confidence and independent automony to improve the family's living enviornment. On site day care services was important for the children as well. You saw the light come back into their eyes when the children interacted with the volunteers. Children need to be able to step away from their day to day lives and enter a safe area of play.

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

well trained and friednly volunteers

Ways to make it better...

we could have had a more indepth volunteer orientation.
