My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Rutherford Housing Partnership Inc, Rutherfordton, NC, USA
I am connected with many people who are volunteers with RHP--my parents and a number of our long term family friends are dedicated to the mission of RHP. I have seen these volunteers and board members work for years now to say "no" to substandard housing and "yes" to safety, dignity and freedom.
I have been inspired by their creativity--in defining the mission, carrying out the mission, and funding the mission of RHP.
1) RHP volunteers have "nailed" a significant need--shorter term home repair projects that often times volunteers can carry out. In this way, they do not duplicate services that are provided by other local agencies, and can actually work very closely with them.
2) RHP volunteers give a great deal of time and effort to reach out to local citizens, gather materials, make repairs, and ensure the completion of each project.
3) RHP volunteers also spend a lot of time and effort on fundraisers--on dinners and gatherings and mailings that are effective in their local community. They are also good stewards of the money they raise, to ensure maximum impact.
I am impressed with the energy and priority RHP's volunteers offer to those in need in their county. They have impacted many lives for the good.
