Review for Golden Rainbow Center-SAGE, Palm Springs, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Excellent Organization. I participate in "Fit After Fifty",a twice weekly low impact Sr. exercise program designed for general vitality and to improve balance and prevent falls. As a retired art professor I began an art appreciation series coordinated with current exhibitions at the Palm Springs Art Museum. Each unit has two segments, (1) a film and discussion at the Center followed a week later by (2) a docent led museum tour. The well attended pilot exhibition (Spring 2009) was THE PORTRAITS OF ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE. Two more are upcoming in the Fall

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

the improved health (physical and mental), creativity, recreation, and intellect of the fellow member/clients

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

be justifyably proud.

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

its welcome.

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

professional friendly and welcoming.

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

provide a much needed full service senior residential facility with condos, assisted living and skilled nursing components geared to the GLBT community

Ways to make it better...

my partner and I had discovered the Center sooner.

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

fundraising in difficult times from a population shellshocked by worthy appeals.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I'm glad there are no more boxes to fill in.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & I improved my health and volunteered expertise and made new friends.
