Charity Feedback, please

I would appreciate views on whether this is a worthwhile charity to support, especially from anyone who has been helped by them. Thanks!

Are they on that non profit grading site that grades them on how much they take in and how much of that is spent on salaries and overhead vs what they spend on the people they help?

Edited to add - Nope. They are under $1 million so they are not graded by the Charity Navigator.

Agree with Pete’s approach. With few exceptions, if a charity isn’t rated well on Charity Navigator or I’m not personally involved I choose to steer clear. Experience has shown that over time people come and go in organizations like that and members can have many ideas and good intentions but if they aren’t clearly channeled by the mission statement and organizational structure the benefits can be diminished.
