“Everyone at drawchange is extremely passionate about the mission at hand. This is so important to a nonprofit and made my internship worthwhile. I grew to become passionate about the needs of the children myself and going to the shelters is one of the most fulfilling experiences one can have. I got to witness the children grow and prosper from week to week, and really absorb the purpose of what we do. drawchange has a real impact on the children of the homeless community.”
