My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Womens Resource of Greater Houston, Houston, TX, USA
I have volunteered at The Women's Resource of Greater Houston since the summer of 2010. I can honestly say that I am extremely proud to work for such a wonderful organization. During my time as a volunteer, I have witnessed the full scope of the incredible services that the Women's Resource provides to the community. As the social media intern, I help publicize different events and classes that are taking place. Although the primary goal of this organization is to provide financial education to women, their achievements far surpass this intended purpose.
While filming a class for social media purposes, I had the opportunity to see the incredible interaction between the teachers and those taking the class. It was really heartwarming to watch the effectiveness of the volunteers and to see how the students took advice to heart and changed their spending habits. To me, The Women's Resource is a powerhouse of financial education, yes, but is also a source of empowerment for women. The quality of financial education this non-profit provides allows females of all different ages all across Houston to truly become independent, develop new goals, and reach those goals.
In addition to financial education classes, The Women's Resource also developed Project LEAD to help younger girls still in high school to develop these skills before adulthood. This program contributes to the welfare and future of these girls. I am thoroughly impressed by what I've seen of The Women's Resource in my time as a volunteer, and know that the future is just as promising.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
witnessing students change their spending habits and lives through the free financial education classes offered by The Women's Resource. As a result, I've also become more aware of and curtailed my own spending habits.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
promote steady growth, because I think that this organization truly has the ability to reach each and every single woman in Houston.
