Review for Homefront Inc, Lawrenceville, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered as a tutor with HomeFront about ten years ago during my senior year of high school. I haven't lived in the area since, but occasionally volunteer when I'm visiting my parents. Chris, who runs the tutoring program, actually manages to get the kids to view going to tutoring as a privilege!
My mom's office also puts on a picnic for HomeFront clients each spring, and I try to attend when I can. Through that, I've had the opportunity to interact with many HomeFront clients and hear how much they appreciate the assistance they've received. I've also met a number of former clients who are now giving back, either as HomeFront employees or volunteers.

seeing kids make progress in tutoring, hearing clients and former clients rave about the wide range of services they've received.

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

I've been incredibly impressed by my experiences working with HomeFront. I'm sure there is room for improvement, but I don't have any specific suggestions.

Role:  Volunteer & Tutored homeless children.
