My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Loudoun Literacy Council, Potomac Falls, VA, USA
I have been volunteering as an ESL/ESOL teacher for over a a year (4 classes so far, including one at a workplace). Although I am helping LLC provide services, I feel like I should be thanking LLC for giving me the opportunity to be a small part of such a fantastic organization. LLC welcomes every adult student who wants to improve their English skills. But LLC English classes involve much more than just teaching a language and culture. It is about building stronger communities through empowering people. And it's two-way street for the volunteers - I learn so much from my hardworking and kind students, who give me honest insights into their cultures and their lives. We share laughter and friendship, along with a lot of new vocabulary, grammar, and all those idioms. In my current class, 19 of my 22 students have been with me for at least two classes, some for three. They are my classroom family. Thank you LLC!
Review for A Forever-Home Rescue Foundation, Inc., Chantilly, VA, USA
I have adopted two dogs (years apart) through A Forever Home. The organization was fantastic from start to finish. In both cases, the dogs were listed on the website with accurate pictures/descriptions; the fosters facilitated my visits to their homes to see the dogs, and they answered my questions. The adoption process ran smoothly and professionally. The organization clearly cares about the dogs’ wellbeing and wants to place them in good and permanent homes. I received good background and medical information for both dogs. And most importantly, I got GREAT dogs. Highly recommend AFH. I have adopted dogs through other rescues and AFH ranks high.
