Rating: 5 stars  

Have been proud to serve as a volunteer as well as a board member for Community Health Charities. They are a wonderful organization, with such inspiring leaders and executives. Most importantly, they make a difference in every community they serve. And the value they bring is so very needed. By far my most favorite volunteer time, Community Health Charities has built an exceptional organization, a strong brand and a meaningful mission. I have been honored to get to know the organization in a very real way. They are deserving of support and are committed to excellence throughout the nation.

In running the hospice association in New Jersey for 20+ years, I have found the support of Community Health Charities to be irreplaceable to our work. Not only does its financial support help thousands of people learn the benefits of hospice care at end of life, but the opportunity to network with dozens of healthcare leaders from over 40 disease-related charities has broadened our outreach and made our own programming more effective.

Community Health Charities provides such amazing support for the member agencies, helping to procure the vital funds needed to help each agency achieve their mission. I'm so happy to say that I've been on a local board for over ten years and am consistently impressed with the efficient and effective way the organization is run. Well Done!

I have proudly served for more than 10 years on the Board of Directors of Community Health Charities of the National Capital Area, as well as on numerous national and affiliate committees. I am also the official representative for one of CHC's national member charities. It has been such a privilege to work with this fine federation to help place the very best health charities within the reach of millions of donors in workplaces across the country. CHC's innovative Health Matters at Work program brings the urgently needed health information and services provided by these charities directly into the workplace through an easy-to-use, interactive website. CHC's Volunteer Matters 365 program makes it easy for employees to find meaningful volunteer opportunities in their communities.

Community Health Charities of Florida is the reason the Florida SIDS Alliance is still in existence. Without their support and hard work, we would have folded long ago. The financial support coming from CHC funds have enabled us to continue to educate about SIDS and other infant death and Safe Sleep Guidelines. We are able to support families who have lost infants, and we are able to support research into the cause of SIDS. Their support and advocacy, as well as advice have enabled our organization to survive and to thrive. Their partnership is a vital part of our success.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

conjunction with the Florida SIDS Alliance. I have also consulted with them on other health issues, used Health Matters at Work. It is a great resource.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

none.
