During the summer of 2008, I got to know three residents of Enable's Benford group home and write their biographies. First, Enable's Volunteer Coordinator helped match me with a project that would work well for both me and Enable. She explained to me why those particular "consumers" would be best to work with and helped me create a schedule for visiting. As I spent time with the consumers, I saw that the relationships that we formed were mutually beneficial because of the informed and careful way in which Enable matches its consumers with volunteers. The staff at Enable was more than willing to answer any questions that I had about interacting with the consumers, and they always supported the activities that the consumers and I did together. The group home was clean and organized. Each of the three consumers said that, in general, they enjoy living in community with the other consumers and that they like the day trips that the group home staff arrange. The sense of family fostered in the group home created an environment in which the consumers could thrive and be happy. I strongly recommend supporting Enable in its efforts to bring that sense of belonging to even more individuals with disabilities.

The Great!

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

seeing how interactions between the consumers and the volunteers are mutually beneficial and make both parties' days brighter.

Ways to make it better...

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

create more opportunities for each volunteer to form a strong personal relationship with one particular consumer by talking about each person's past, interests, and daily lives.

My family and I have been involved with Enable from the beginning for over 20 years now. Enable staff, and board go over and beyond to make the life of our clients more fullfilling and rewarding. I am amazed at the hard work and devotion that our staff conducts on a regular basis, and our board and various committes our very active and involved. Enable, their clients, and their clients families have given my family so much more then we have given them. Our experience with Enable has been rich and rewarding. My wife, daughter & son-in-law, son & daughetr-in-law, and now my grandchildren continue to assist Enable in way that may be helful.

Our family has seen first hand the results of Enable's work. For instance, a teenager being able to come out of his house for the first time in his wheelchair, rather then being carried down the steps. Or another young adult riding a stair glide from his 2nd floor bedroom for the first time becuase he was getting to big for his dad to carry and more. The smiles were priceless!

Ways to make it better...

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

No changes, just continued affordable housing and services to our clients with disabilities and their familes in 3 NJ counties with hopes of serving all 21 of NJ's counties.
