Support Connection Honored As 2017 Top Rated Nonprofit Award is based on Positive Online Reviews.

Support Connection announced that it has been honored with a prestigious 2017 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations. This is the fourth consecutive year Support Connection has earned this distinction. 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: “A diagnosis of breast cancer is terrifying. I felt I could not breathe or function. Every day I went through the motions of pretending to exist. The horrors of treatment, chemotherapy, multiple surgeries, infections, being permanently disfigured. No one understood, and then I called Support Connection. I remember my first call, all I said was I have breast cancer and burst into tears. A warm compassionate counselor, Marlene, came on the phone and was so incredible supportive. I could speak about my fears with someone who got it. I’m three years out of treatment now but I know they will always be there for me. This is an exceptional organization doing good work and we must continue to support them. I will forever be grateful for them.”

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. It is especially gratifying because it’s based on reviews from the people who know us best: 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, as well as those who have volunteered for or donated to us.”
