Review for Atlanta Harm Reduction Coalition Inc., Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2009 I met Jeffrey McDowell at a meeting where he vocally advocated for inclusion of his constituent base in our upcoming English Avenue First Annual Festival of Lights. Drawn by his passionate advocacy, I arranged a meeting and discovered this awesome group of people working and advocating 24/7 for the poorest, most needy in English Avenue, especially, and beyond. I got new education on needle exchange. I met awesome people transformed by the work of this team. I fell in love with the people and the mission of AHRC. I am here to support, encourage, undergird and advance the work of AHRC and the spirits of its staff and other volunteers.

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

Re-education on spirit, practicallity, soundness for health of our people, community of needle exchange; on how to support our people while they are dealing with substance dependency and overcoming it.

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

advance funding to increase programmtic staff

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

the people - staff, volunteers, clients

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

powerful, passionate, uncompromisingly dedicated to mission of AHRC and its constituent base, self sacrificing

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

develop and implement programs which - connect faith based institutions in a faith based manner -increase the number of clients served - secure a building which would advance the capapcity and focus of services provided

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to spend with them

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


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

its time that we stop talking about doing more of what AHRC and its sister agencies do and put our money where our mouths are.
