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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer for Union Station, Pasadena for many years, first: as overnight helper in the bad weather shelter at First Congregational Church, and later at the new facility on Raymond. Lately, I have been helping with cooking and serving dinner at their family shelter on Orange Grove near lake Ave.

I have been volunteering for several other charitable organizations, but can say without equivocation that Union Station has been the best-run and most efficient one that I have encountered. The supervisors and fellow-volunteers work together harmoniously and efficiently like clock work. Everyone is relaxed and friendly toward our clients in a very down-to-earth, yet discreet way. It is most gratifying that so many of them express their gratitude for serving them meals or for washing their laundry. Oftentimes I feel that I receive more in the way of encouragement and satisfaction than I gave as a volunteer.
I'm proud that Union Station is such an important part of our community. Erich Frey
