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

Rating: 5 stars  

Project Homeless Connect is a great contributor to our community. During this time of the economic crisis, more people are finding themselves without jobs and homes. The services that this organization provides will help decrease homelessness by helping those who are in need get back on their feet. With the many free services that PHC provides I am not surprised that there were plenty of first time participants as well as regular participants. This shows that these services are being utilized greatly by the San Francisco community. The services that I observed to be most helpful are medical assistance, housing, and food offerings. As an escort I was able to meet many people who were grateful for the assistance that the organization offers. Although the organization cannot provide its services more than every two months because of the budget, it definitely has a significant effect. Being a first time volunteer, I would love to see Project Homeless Connect become a clinic with regular hours someday. I believe that if there were more sources for funding by the community, it would be possible to help the community on a daily basis. With daily communication, the clinic can help as a stepping-stone for optimum health and success, by regularly helping people reach their goals. Furthermore, with the high volume of participants, it would be more efficient to have a clinic so that their stay is never rushed and materials do not run out. If the services could be provided upon request, I have faith that there will be less people on the streets. Overall, Project Homeless Connect changed my view on volunteering my time and care. I can only begin to imagine how it changes the clients’ lives.

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

the words of gratitude that people expressed.

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

try my best to have this event more often.

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

the goodness of others.

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

very enlightening and willing to help me my questions.

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

open a clinic that is open with regular hours.

Ways to make it better...

I was fluent in another language.

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