Support Connection Honored as 2019 Top Rated Nonprofit

2019 top rated nonprofit award Award is Based on Positive Online Reviews.

Support Connection announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2019 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations. This is the sixth 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.

Here is a sample of one review: “Even as a physician myself, I have never encountered a group as compassionate and supportive as Support Connection. In my hours of greatest need during my breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, they were there for me when no one else was, even though the medical facilities I attended all had social workers and support groups. The level of commitment and availability of the women working at Support Connection was amazing. When I was unable to leave my home, they offered me solid advice and emotional support over the phone. They understand the whole picture of the needs of women with female cancers. I am so grateful for their existence. Kindness, compassion, empathy, openness, knowledge- they have it all.”

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 clients, volunteers, and 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: “It is especially rewarding to receive this award again 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 most difficult challenges anyone can face. We are also proud of the positive reviews from those who have volunteered for or donated to us. We are extremely honored to receive this recognition.”
