Review for Straight Spouse Network Inc, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A wonderful group with an important mission! One day waking up & realizing your spouse is gay & in denial, is no walk in the park. The folks that are at SSN know this, since they have all been there. They offer Face to Face Meeting for folks around the world & I found them all very helpful during a very difficult time. I was & in some ways still am a "client served," but now am happy to volunteer my time to help.

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

the difference it makes in the lives of the folks it serves. All QUITE wonderful & amazing.

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

make it a "membership" org for those that have been involved for 1 year plus. Pay dues, have a vote. Also, a free pass of course for the few that couldn't pay dues.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

playing a part in the lives of those who came after...helping as I was helped.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all very helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help members with finances through grant applications, get the word out on a bigger level, hire more folks to run it all, reach more lives!

Ways to make it better...

I had gotten there sooner!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Fun raising. For whatever reason, we are an unsympathic lot to corp. america
