My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Project Homeless Connect, San Francisco, CA, USA
I think the Project Homeless Connect is very helpful in dealing with homelessness, but of course there are always things that can be done better. It is very helpful for the homeless client to be able to come to the building and get free services, but once every two months may not be enough. I understand that there have been budget cuts, like there has been with everything, but some fund raising could be done to help these homeless individuals more. Project Homeless Connect should happen at least once a month instead of once every two months. This project is very important in helping the homeless get back on their feet. There are dental and vision services that can help the homeless be ready physically to apply for a job. There were some people who showed up, who said that if they just had better teeth then they could get a job. The available health services are great too, because the homeless clients can receive a flu shot, get tested for HIV, get their blood pressure check and several other health services for free that they couldn’t otherwise afford. Besides healthcare services: banking, counseling, needle exchange, DMV IDs, food and housing services were also available. All the services offered at PHC allow homeless individuals to change their lifestyles. Counseling can help the homeless deal with any problems they have. PHC not only helps homeless clients solve their problems, but also better prepares them to make the transition to working at a job or moving into a home. This is why it’s important for Project Homeless Connect to work on raising money, so that they could offer their services to homeless individuals more often. This is a great project that is helping tremendously and could continue to do so much more for the homeless population.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
seeing how one organization can make such a big difference in the homeless population.
