My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Project Homeless Connect, San Francisco, CA, USA
After volunteering at Project Homeless Connect as an escort, it was great to see that so many necessary services and recreational services were being provided for so many individuals, who were in less than ideal situations, such as homelessness. Offering these many services all in one place helps improve the situation that homeless individuals are experiencing, whether or not it be emotionally, physically, psychologically, and/or spiritually. For example, the clients of Project Homeless Connect get the opportunity to talk to people, which may be very important to a particular client especially if he or she has not spoken to someone in days or even weeks. That simple act of communication brings them back to society, especially if homelessness has made them outcasts, and it can help boost that client’s moral, which can improve their emotion from sad to happy, and maybe even boost their spirituality by comprehending that act of kindness as a blessing. Providing all of these services under one roof lessens the burden of inaccessibility and distance that these individuals must face occasionally, if not regularly, and this luxury that Project Homeless Connect gives these people can reduce the length of time and circumstance of being homeless. The service of making food and groceries available without any expense saves an individual’s time and effort. The help that was provided allows them to feed themselves and their families, instead of trying to find work that does not even allow them to pay the bills and housing, let alone buy that food that was given for free at this organization. It is the simple necessities, such as food, clothing, and shelter that we, as very fortunate people, take for granted, that it is not realized by the majority of people how difficult it is to obtain them without the proper resources, and the proper support. It is the convenience and hospitality that Project Homeless Connect offers that helps many unfortunate individuals avoid, even just for one day, the struggle of surviving.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
everything was very organized and there were so many services:)
