Would you recommend Hill Country Community Ministries?
An extensive review or this organization was provided so volunteers/donors are able to make an informed choice RE: where to donate. That post was removed. This was unfortunate as all info was factual. My experience with HCCM is that they have high overhead due to poor mgmt. Clients receive almost nothing compared to the cost of staff and other expenses. My experience as a volunteer is that the funds, food, and clothes are donated and delivered to clients by free volunteers. The cost to deliver donations to clients by non paid staff is too high for a nonprofit. The board has been made aware but there have been many boards staff volunteers & donors and therefor accountability is minimal to none. Current ED has never had a performance review/employee evaluation in a 5 year tenure. Inappropriate & deplorable given the large number of complaints submitted to the board re: mgmt. HCCM boards have been extremely challenged re: what their responsibilities are. If donating, please ear mark.
hill country community ministries claims to be for people of faith. in reality, if you're not a christian, you're not welcome to volunteer here. in the current economic climate, one would think that any hard working volunteer would be wanted. but at hill country community ministries, that's simply not the case. after volunteering for several weeks, picking up extra shifts, donating my time and goods, the ministry decided that i was not welcome to volunteer there based on my non-christian appearance. after being told not to return, by email, no one will answer any of my questions. apparently hard work and a giving spirit is not good enough for these people. i don't recommend them at all unless you're as closed minded as they are.
