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

Rating: 5 stars  

Nice picture. ))) Don’t you think that people on the photo look very happy? Why? And who are they? First of all, it is mayor of San Francisco at the famous event of Project Homeless Connect that occurs only once every two months. Secondly, there are two volunteers from USF, who had their first experience with PHC. Although these individuals had different responsibilities on the Project Homeless Connect, they all have the same goal to help and make others happier. A chance to volunteer on the Project Homeless Connect, on February 11th, expanded my range of interest and gave me the idea how helpful this project is for people who really need the help. Although it is called Project Homeless Connect, clients don’t need to be homeless to attend the event. Many people are involved with PHC in order to volunteer helping clients to get their basic needs like social security, DMV, living, and medical services. It was an excellent idea to offer lunch, where people can even choose what kind of food they wanted, vegetarian or meat, and provide products for people to take home with them. Talking to the clients helped me changed my attitude toward them. It was very inspiring to see that most of them have great personalities, desire to talk, and even share stories about their hard lives. I was impressed to talk to them, because most of them have interesting stories. Many of the clients have lost their homes, as a result of the economic situation in the country; they need to solve their living problem. It was really sad to look at their unhappy faces when they realized that no more vacant rooms were left for them. Project Homeless Connect provides hope for people, because it makes everyone happy: people who need help and people who are ready to offer their help. Help doesn’t necessary need to be financial. A smile or small talk can help a person to open up and share their problems. These are important components that can help to make somebody’s life happier at that moment; this is my motto. I have no preferences between a regular clinic or PHC, for both help homeless individuals. These are two different settings with different responsibilities, but the purpose is the same to help, to care, and to make people’s lives better.

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

to help people to be happy at least during the event.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
