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

Rating: 5 stars  

I previously served as a volunteer, and then later as a staff member of Carpenter's Shelter. Currently, I am volunteering.

Carpenter's is making a positive impact in the lives of the women, men and children it serves every day. Case management staff demonstrate care and compassion, and work diligently to understand each person's and families needs and provide critical services and resources. Their David's Place day shelter team works hard to meet the basic needs of chronically homeless men and women. The volunteer, development and communication teams are constantly coordinating critical support for the shelter. It all starts with the leadership team who casts their vision for a stable, better way of life for shelter residents.

As a former employee, I realize their work is tough. I strongly recommend this top notch, service-delivery organization as one of the Great Nonprofits.
