and Just a Few Testimonials. . .
"Freedom House for Women has received help in growing our organization from Collaboration Station and we are very pleased with our results. As a nonprofit agency that serves mothers and women in addiction recovery that just opened its doors in October 2007, it was important to have the right coaching and technical assistance to move forward. Thanks to Collaboration Station, we not only developed effective processes for building our operational capacity but also were able to raise over $30,000 in grants our first year. There should be more Collaboration Station's. Their genuine desire to go that extra mile to help small nonprofits succeed is unparalleled!" --Eva Moore, Executive Director, Freedom House for Women
"Upon receiveing the call from Ms. Smith it was my pleasure to volunteer to be a guest speaker for the program. To be blunt, I was extremely surprised at the high level of interest, enthusiasm and knowledge that the audience possessed. The level of questions, the interest in the subject, and the apparent acceptance of the informaiton quite frankly shocked me. Ms. Smith or someone at the Collaboration Station is, quite frankly, preparing their students incredibly well. There were several instances where the string of questioning appeared to me to be entering into what would have been presented in the upper years of law school!" --Atty.

We believe Collaboration Station will be an on going asset to the Akron community. I have full faith in Ms. Smith's abilities, dedication and character [as Executive Director]. I seek her advice myself and expect that I will be working with her in the future." --Donae Eckert, former Vice President of Programs, Akron Community Foundation
