THE EVOLUER HOUSE HONORED AS 2016 TOP-RATED NONPROFIT Award is based on Positive Online  Reviews



Philadelphia, PA – (April 12, 2016) – The Evoluer House announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2016 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.


“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2016 Nonprofit,” says Cheryl Ann Wadlington, Executive Director of The Evoluer House. We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including being recognized by President Barack Obama for 11 years of service to young urban girls.”


The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that The Evoluer House received -- reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit.  For example, one person wrote, “I have been a volunteer since April 2014. Cheryl Ann Wadlington has created an empowering girlhood culture that is second to none. The summer programs are incredible. Some girls enter the program hesitantly and some enter eagerly, but they all leave the program CHANGED, IMPROVED and RESTORED! They are equipped and able to share what they have learned with those whom they will come in contact with.”


While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, The Evoluer House was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, we’ll be added to GreatNonprofits  #GivingTuesday Guide—an interactive guide to Top nonprofits throughout the years. Look for this near the holidays.


“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits. “People with direct experience with The Evoluer House have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”


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 this nonprofit.  This award is a form of recognition by the community.
