Review for WAGES (Women's Action to Gain Economic Security), Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have an old enamel "Wedgewood" stove, well-used but no longer the glowing white it once was. I never saw it so clean as when we had WAGES-trained and -organized cleaners here. The whole house breathes a sigh of relief after they come through.

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

our home, and in our cohousing neighborhood's Common House on a regular basis.

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

more aggressively market the green aspects.

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

knowing that the workers are working for themselves, not some impersonal/arbitrary employer.

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

friendly, helpful, ready to get to work

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

expand the model to additional regions and make it a viable choice.

Ways to make it better...

they weren't so busy so I had more choice in scheduling.

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

inertia and a declining economy limiting discretionary household spending.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Client Served & I hired Natural Home cleaning to clean our house.
