Support Connection announced that it has been honored with a prestigious 2016 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations. Support Connection provides free support services, such as counseling, support groups and other programs, to people affected by breast and ovarian cancer.
This Top-Rated Nonprofit award presented by GreatNonprofits is based on the large number of positive reviews Support Connection received: online reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experiences with the organization.
For example, one woman, a cancer survivor who reached out to Support Connection, wrote: “I’ve been associated with Support Connection since my cancer diagnosis and throughout continual treatment over the last 4 years . Their peer counselor program is outstanding. They’re always available to console in the most difficult of times as well as celebrate when upbeat news comes my way. They understand what I’m going through more than anyone else in my life…. I’m incredibly thankful for everything they’ve done for me and don’t hesitate to recommend them to any woman facing breast, ovarian or gynecological cancer. They far exceed my expectations.”
While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, Support Connection was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year. 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 Support Connection. This award is a form of recognition by the community.
Support Connection Executive Director Katherine Quinn says: “We are honored to receive this award again. We are especially pleased because it’s based on reviews from the people who know us best: those who have volunteered for or donated to us, and most importantly, people who reached out to us and found the help, understanding and guidance they needed to get through some of the toughest challenges anyone can face. ”
Quinn adds “In 2016, Support Connection celebrated 20 years of providing free breast and ovarian cancer support services. We are proud of our accomplishments. With continued support from our donors and the community, we look forward to many more years of fulfilling this important mission.”
