My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Rutherford Housing Partnership Inc, Rutherfordton, NC, USA
Rutherford Housing Partnership is the only organization of its kind in our area. We provide urgent home repairs such as new roofs and floors as well as building handicap ramps for low-income homeowners. Our clients include the elderly, single parents and the disabled. We raise funds by various means to purchase the building materials needed for each project. We then enlist volunteers to complete the work. We partner with other local nonprofits to make our resources go farther. Our clients have no other means of accomplishing these repairs and are so grateful for the assistance. Once the repairs are completed they no longer have to worry about getting wet when it rains or falling through the bathroom floor or how they'll get into and out of their homes. I can truly say that Rutherford Housing Partnership models professionalism and passion in fulfilling its mission. It is a great example of people-to-people community service.

Seeing how people's lives are improved by the repairs we have made. The repairs meet a physical need, but the clients are also touched by the fact that a bunch of strangers care enough to help them out. It gives them hope. The volunteers are blessed because they can see how their efforts make a tangible difference in the life of another human being.
