Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty is real place so far I could feel that I'm in good hands. Metcouncil is non-profit organization, but what they do is much better than if its employment agency, who charges for job placement. Since I lost the job, I made many many searches for employeers and job placement agencies, but there is even no hope , and while I discovered Metcouncil I got very excited, because they gave me hope with their individual career counceling and assessment, using Job search strategies and techniques(internet job site, networking, job fairs, creating resume, mock interviews, etc.). Special thanks to ms.Karen Ulker and ms.Jessica Polsky for their warm and friendly manners to help people feel they are in good hands.While you are in their office you met team of professionals who try to address the special needs of each client.

Our non-profit organization received a Capacity Building Grant from the Growth Fund at the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Povery for one year. In addition, I have attended numerous workshops and training events at Met Council. I can say without exception that every workshop and training event I have attended has been superb. The presenters have all been top-notch and the quality and quantity of information has always been outstanding. I cannot find words that are adequate to describe the staff. They are exceptionally compenent, caring and professional in every sense of the word. I have always found them to be very knowledgeable, helpful and eager to assist other non-profits in every way possible. I have nothing but praise for the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty and the work it does. It is outstanding in every way.

The first time I heard about the Met Council was about 2 years ago. Their dedication to their work of reaching out to poor jews, elderly, unemployed, abuse victims and breaking families is of great kindness. They provide prepared meals for thousands and thousands of families daily. The met council has taken on the project of fund raising for this expensive budget. Their financial burden is extended further in the Met Council's professional service towards rebuilding the lives of abuse victims - mothers and children. Perhaps the greatest kindness the Met Council delivers is assisting New Yorkers to no longer be in need of this organization. The Met Council helps these impoverished Jews gain financial independence - the highest level of charity, with honor. New Yorkers turn to this organization for direct relief in their times of basic need.

Ever since my husband was removed from my house due to physical abuse, Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty, particulary Shana Frydman and staff, stepped right in and offered emotional, mental, physical and monetary support. It has been a place for me to vent, relax, breathe and reframe. This is a wonderful opportunity for me to express my gratitude and appreciation for all that you do.

I have been a consultant to Met Council for over twenty years, helping them make estimates of the number and location of poor Jewish people in New York City and the adjacent suburban counties. They have consistently been a capable and intelligent group to work with. I have been impressed with their innovative approaches to their work and also their dedication to the needs of their clients.

As a grant writer and development consultant for numerous non-profit organizations, I have worked with Met Council and benefitted from their services and programs on many occasions. They have done excellent studies on the Jewish poor and on Jewish youth delinquency, generating extensive statistical, demographic and other vital information on their human service needs. Met Council has served as an overhead coordinating agency for so many community councils and non-profit service organizations, providing critical services and funding resources for organizations in need. Met Council continues to meet the needs of the poor through their myriad programs and services. They also provide excellent technical assistance and management workshops that I attend and always learn something new to help me and the agencies I represent to better meet the needs of our constituents and clients. The Growth Fund has enabled so many organizations to build their capacity to serve their communities and clientele more efficiently and professionally.

It is our pleasure to write a review for Met Council. This wonderful organization has been an integral component of the Greater New York region for many years, serving as prime innovators to provide assistance for the area’s disadvantaged populace. Met Council’s staff endeavors to heighten awareness to the plight of the less fortunate and advocate for their needs. Met Council also encourages other organizations to carry out their respective mission, and provides the necessary resources to allow this to happen. I personally have been the recipient of their assistance and support in my capacity as a non-profit administrator. They are readily available and have the wherewithal to help in significant ways. They have helped us procure several grants which have led to the expansion of our organization. It would be difficult to imagine New York without Met Council. They are an unparalleled resource and deserve to win this important recognition.

I have seen first hand, the incredible work that MET Council does through the myriad of programs/JCCs it runs across New York City. As the former liaison for a citywide elected official I interacted with countless seniors who receive hot, Kosher meals and social services because of the hard work of MET Council employees. I serve on the Board of the JCC of Canarsie (run by the incredible and passionate Rabbi Avrom Hecht) and have seen the joy on the faces of the Holocaust survivors who get physical and emotional support through MET Council. I have also spoken with members of low-income families, both Jewish and non-Jewish, who have affordable housing because of MET Council. The Council is well-run, very well organized and has dedicated staff, from caseworkers to the Executive Director and Chief of Staff, who successfully help those in need.
