Together in Hope announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2013 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations. “We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2013 Nonprofit,” says Laura Power, Program Director, Together in Hope. ‘We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including our recent trip to El Salvador where we provided free medical and dental care to over 500 patients who had never seen a doctor or dentist before'
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Together in Hope received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, Dr Teresa Duryea who recently travelled to El Salvador wrote , ‘I was one of the volunteer team that recently traveled to the community of Alta Mira Flores in El Salvador to provide health care, dental screening, exercise fun, and education to the children and families in the area. Together in Hope is a wonderful nonprofit that focuses on giving educational and nutritional support, plus offers access to health and dental care to communities in El Salvador, the Philippines, and Ethiopia. One of the great features of this organization is the longitudinal relationships built with these communities’
While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, Together in Hope was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year.“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “People with direct experience with Together in Hope have voted that the organization is making a real difference.” Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community
