My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for North County Interfaith Council, Inc. (dba Interfaith Community Services), Escondido, CA, USA
I have lived for most of my life in Escondido, and countless times have encountered people in need on the streets. I have referred dozens of these people to Interfaith because it is a stand-up organization that cares about who they are serving and will do what it takes to stretch every dollar donated to serve every person who seeks assistance. Throughout the years, several people have also contacted me asking to what nonprofit organization in North County they should donate their time, money and resources. My response: Interfaith Community Services! Where’s the easy button?
I have such confidence in Interfaith as an organization and those who operate it because of my experiences with them as an employee, intern, consultant, and as a community member and supporter. From each of these perspectives my awareness of the need for their services and how the organization meets those needs has increased, and my confidence and belief in Interfaith only grows stronger. In their profile they listed their top 3-5 accomplishments for the past year; it would have been easy for them to legitimately list at least 5 more—that’s the impact they are having on our community.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The powerful, positive and life changing impact Interfaith has had and continues to have in my community. I am proud to tell people about Interfaith. Having worked "on the inside" I am personally blessed to have been part of their work and have developed a special place in my heart for them and those they serve.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Replicate and launch more Interfaith organizations in other areas- so many other communities in other counties and states need the expansive set of services that Interfaith offers, combined with the efficiency and effectiveness it delivers as an organization. It works!
