Review for Compassion & Choices, Littleton, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I’m a volunteer with a terminal disease that is not covered under the Oregon Death With Dignity program. I am, as well as a volunteer, a client served by C&C.
Compassionate, thoughtful, brave and diligent describe the staff. I’ve worked for more than 35 years as a volunteer and an employee for some of the most respected non-profits in the country, often working for more than one at a time.
C&C staffers do some of the toughest work in the non-profit pantheon. They do so with compassion, empathy, bravery and respect for others, including opponents.
I’m very proud to be associated with Compassion and Choices.

Review for Compassion & Choices, Littleton, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I reached out to an acquaintance with a vague offer to volunteer. It turned into an opportunity that was a perfect fusion of my life situation with their rollout of a remarkable, life-changing, new service, the Dementia Tool Kit. I was so very honored to be a part of that effort. And, as a former ED of a non-profit myself, I am in a good position to judge how the C and C staff approached its work with me.
They were clear in their objective, their deadlines, and in their execution. They trusted me to create a plan and set me up for success in the presentation of it to several, related audience groups. It was win-win and win for them, their audience and me.
I was supported by people at each level of their organization. It was a great experience and I’m hoping I can do more to help.
