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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering at Carpenters Shelter for 5 months. I work at the front desk each week and spend time with the youngest residents at Children's Hour. The staff is extraordinary, so talented and dedicated to helping those facing major life challenges get back on their feet. They look at each individual and family holistically and coordinate their talents yo improve the lives of others. They are compassionate and resourceful. I'm in awe of the extraordinary work they do. I get far more from volunteering than I give. Looking at life through the eyes of the staff and residents gives me a whole new perspective.
