Review for Central Iowa Shelter & Services, Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Central Iowa Shelter & Services plays a crucial role in getting homeless adults off the street and on the path toward self-sufficiency. It is a careful steward of public and private funds, and annually serves with a limited budget thousands of people through leveraging a strong volunteer force and careful expenditures. The shelter is in the process of constructing a new building, which will enable better service to more individuals in the years ahead.

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

maintaining the shelter's core mission of service to its clients while maximizing the impact of public and private dollars in its operation.

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

Improve the shelter's physical facilities, which thankfully will happen with the building of a new shelter in the next two years.

Role:  Board Member & I served on the board and committees related to the new building.
