Review for Union Station Homeless Services, Pasadena, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered with many organizations over the years. I have found Union Station to be a welcoming, organized, needy, and grateful nonprofit. The people who are served by the organization are friendly and grateful, both for the volunteers and for the organization itself. The staff are caring, thoughtful and also grateful for the volunteers. They provide not only room and food but also services to help get the homeless clients back to self-sufficiency, whether that be thru training, eduction, and/ or substance abuse. The Family Center is a welcoming and homey place for the children that are there with their parents. I have been extremely impressed with the clients, staff, facilities, and offerings at the Family Center and the Adult Center.

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

Seeing clients come and go over a period of time instead of becoming reliant on the organization.

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

Perform more volunteer outreach.

Role:  Volunteer & I cook and serve dinners in the Adult Center & make bagged lunches for the children in the Family Center once per month each.
