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

Rating: 5 stars  

Project Homeless Connect was an astounding experience for me. I am from Los Angeles and in all of my year of public service, I have never participated in something so remarkable. With its array of convenient services, Project Homeless Connect, most definitely improves the homeless situation in San Francisco. In fact, I don’t think there could be any form of public service that could reinforce homelessness, because people do not choose to be homeless; being homeless is influenced by what they don’t have in life, not what they are offered. If anything, Project Homeless Connect alleviates homelessness. Project Homeless Connect provides housing services to their clients, decreasing the number of homeless individual sleeping on the streets. The organization also offers employment opportunities and social groups activities. Such services will help homeless people to slowly integrate back into society. Project Homeless Connect is an immensely beneficial service. If I had to choose between establishing a community clinic or supporting Project Homeless Connect, I would choose Project Homeless Connect. Many people, not just the homeless, do not have access to eye care and rely on Project Homeless Connect for prescription glasses. Many people only see the dentists at Project Homeless Connect. Many people never experience therapeutics services such as acupuncture or even massages if it was not offered free of charge at Project Homeless Connect. Therefore, I would choose to fund Project Homeless Connect, a service that will not turn anyone away, unlike some clinics. Also, I am extremely proud that I was able to be part of Project Homeless Connect, for it makes such a big impact in people’s lives, and I am ecstatic that I got to be a part of making such an impact.

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

the clients being helped

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure everyone working was enthusiastic about this project

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

seeing that people who need help the most are given aid and so much more

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

generally enthusiastic about their job

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

spread out to different location, such as LA :)

Ways to make it better...

if my role was a nurse at Project Homeless Connect

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the ratio of service provider staff to client ratio

One thing I'd also say is that...

this is truly is a humane and altruistic project

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
