Review for West Suburban Pads Inc, Oak Park, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer with my family at PADS for the past few years. We spend one night a month cooking, serving and cleaning up a dinner for the 50 or so guests that spend the night in one of their emergency shelters. This has been a fantastic family activity that has helped our three children (8, 11 and 13) understand the realities of homelessness in a safe environment. Through this program, my family has been able to see people move up and out of homelessness and feel like we have played a small part in their success.

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

seeing how much they do for their clients

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

increase the communication between staff and volunteers.

Role:  Volunteer & volunteered in their emergency shelter.
