GreatNonprofits.org, a leading website in which users can find, review and share information about nonprofit organizations in local communities, recognized MARR as one of the top 10 volunteer opportunities in Atlanta. Volunteers and interns in the Atlanta area compiled the list of favorite charities, and every nonprofit included in the list had to earn an overall score of 4 (or greater) out of 5.
“We are honored to receive recognition among the people of Atlanta and beyond. Since 1975, MARR has placed great emphasis on the importance of volunteers within our recovering communities,” said Guerry Dyes, CEO of MARR. “It is through these individuals that our clients experience acceptance — something they were void of in active addiction.”
Currently, there are more than 250 (and counting) reviews of MARR on GreatNonprofits.org. Reviewers not only consist of previous volunteers, but friends, family members and former clients provide feedback on the addiction treatment facility as well. The evaluations speak for themselves, shining light on MARR’s intensive treatment model, caring and knowledgeable staff, and devotion to family recovery.
“We appreciate our volunteers for their commitment to our clients. These community members not only give their time to help those who are struggling with addiction, but they open their hearts through prayer, encouragement and support,” said Dyes. “Sometimes just being present is all it takes.”
