Review for Other Options, Inc., Oklahoma City, OK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started at Other Options as a volunteer one year ago this month. As soon as I began I was immediately impressed with not only the services they provide but how the clients are treated as well. Mary Arbuckle (the director) knows everyone by name and knows their entire back story. I quickly joined the advisory committee and recently joined the board. I really do feel that we have a great group of people working together to try and help as many people in need as we possibly can. I was told when I first started that when you're volunteering, if you're not having fun you shouldn't do it. We manage to have a lot of fun and great interaction w/the clients while getting a lot of important work done.

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

my interactions with the clients.

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

It would be great to have the funds to build a kitchen when we are in our new building.

Role:  Board Member & I package and deliver food to the homebound clients, help distribute foods to the clients that come in to shop w/us, serve on the board and help cook and distribute food for our annual Thanksgiving Day meal delivery.
