Review for Fathers Heart Ministries, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

The only reason this doesn't get five stars is that I am still new to the ministry, and yet they've won four stars in my book easily.

I have got to know their leadership, which has decades of experience in the neighborhood they serve, and am convinced that not only do they deliver superior services to people in need, but they do so cost-effectively.

Father's Heart is embarking on a campaign fund delivery of even more services than before to more people. And they're not raising money to put up new bricks and mortar or to add unnecessary functionalities. They are simply restoring what has been in place in their neighborhood for 140 years: a church building that has served generations of New Yorkers.

Because of their dedicated leadership, the volunteers they have recruited, and the planning for the future that they have undertaken, I have every confidence their work will continue to bear fruit for people in need.

Once I am around them for a few more months, I'm sure another star will appear on my review!

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

Understanding how services are delivered to residents in neighborhood. Been recipient of prayer.

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

Hire more support staff; current staff is overworked and underpaid. Complete succession planning process. (Being done now.)

Role:  Volunteer & advise on fundraising.
