Review for Carpenter's Shelter, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been involved with Carpenter's Shelter in little ways off and on since about 1991 as time and money have permitted me. It was the first homeless shelter that I volunteered in while in college - it has a special place in my heart. I've seen the shelter grow from something very small to become a pillar of the Alexandria community. Its committment to the homeless and recently homeless is exemplary and is has never been more needed. May God continue to bless Carpenters and its entire community.

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

how the staff treats every member of the community with the highest amount of respect.

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

-- I think the organization is extremely well run.

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

how pleasant it is to work with the staff and how anyone can easily contribute directly to assist the homeless in our community.

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

very friendly and respectful to both shelter clients, volunteers, donors and everyone associated with the shelter.

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

open and manage several facilities and programs throughout the Northern Virginia/DC area - maximum impact!

Ways to make it better...

-- nothing negative to comment.

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

the overwhelming economic circumstances in our society today.

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

we need more organizations like this that service the larger community.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
