My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for One Warm Coat, San Francisco, CA, USA
PitStop Outreach was grateful to receive so many coats from the Gilroy Rotary One Warm Coat drive this winter! It feels good to be able to give people a choice, and let them get the correct size and style, especially since the coats themselves were high quality, clean, and in perfect condition. It really makes a difference for people who live outdoors when they have good, warm outerwear to face the elements.
Review for Gilroy Compassion Center, Gilroy, CA, USA
I have been a part of the Gilroy Compassion Center since the beginning. We began this organization to fill a gap in services and advocacy in South Santa Clara County. Although there were other agencies providing services, none were focused specifically on the homeless. In December 2011, the Gilroy Compassion Center opened the doors to the only drop-in, one-stop day center for the homeless in our area. It is more than an open door for services -- it is a place to know that you belong. Run almost entirely buy volunteers, the Gilroy Compassion Center provides basic needs of daily living, connections to other resources, and opportunities to participate and be a part of the community.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Build funding so that we could provide what people need most -- a place to sleep! Our next step is to raise funds to buy the building we are in, and provide needed renovations to create transitional housing.
