Review for Shanti Project, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I moved to SF a few years back and sought out great non-profits that I could volunteer at, primarily to give back, and to meet new people. After having done research, I landed on Shanti--they had some wonderful reviews out there. I went through the volunteering orientation sessions and was *thrilled* to see that such care went into their programs. It truly is staffed by people that genuinely care about the causes. This was refreshing! Ultimately, I was unable to make a long-term commitment to their caregiving volunteer program; however, I volunteer each year for their Swim-for-Life program--it's my small way of still being connected to a fantastic organization and a fantastic cause.

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

Enable them with more equipment and budgets! They're doing fantastic, necessary work, have been around for decades, and deserve to operate on more than they actually do.
