My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Carpenter's Shelter, Alexandria, VA, USA
I have been a volunteer at The Carpenter’s Shelter for the past ten years, preparing and serving breakfast and lunch, along with my colleagues on a monthly basis.
It is a truly wonderful experience to consistently see the level of thoughtfulness and caring in the interactions of Carpenter’s staff with Carpenter’s residents.
Carpenter’s professional and trusting atmosphere lends itself well to the families here and their comfort level during this difficult phase of their lives. I have learned about the health programs, and the guidance and training offered to residents during their stay, greatly helping them to successfully prepare for the transition to their own homes again. The Carpenter’s Team goes even further by maintaining contact with individuals, even after they have transitioned out, offering programs that help them to keep moving forward and not experience homelessness again.
The Carpenter’s Staff are an inspiring Team, making a difference in people’s lives each and every day and it has been an honor to add our support to empower change.
