Nazareth Housing is a truly impressive organization. The staff members are all extremely hardest-working, diligent and compassionate and the high degree of concern and care they have for their clients is noteworthy. As an example, they accompany their clients as they visit apartments and look for permanent housing.

Nazareth Housing and its staff are 100% committed to fight homelessness. I came upon this organization through Mr. Callaghan, the director. He is sincere in his mission and I am glad to be a supporter especially in this difficult time.

I've occasionally recommended neighbors for rent assistance. It's been women who have had temporary difficulty. I've also sent women, immigrants, who've needed help with transportation costs due to family situations that required their presence.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

meet needs more easily; e.g. not have to send a client to 3 or 4 additional agencies in order to cover rent arrears. Nazareth could do more work in securing and preserving affordable housing.

I came to Nazareth Housing about two years ago with my mother. We had no place to live in New York and were unable to return to Puerto Rico because my mother needed medical attention. Doctors did not want my mother to travel. It was a very difficult time for my mother and myself. During this time we found a place to live in temporary at Nazareth Housing. They helped us through the toughest times of our life. After months and months of navigating the shelter system the staff helped us become eligible for shelter and shortly afterwards we moved out into our own apartment. Thank you Nazareth Housing for showing us compassion and love.

My experience with Nazareth Housing has been one that I treasure. I was once homeless myself, many years ago and I know all too well the heartfelt despair that one feels when you do not have a home to call your own. However, Nazareth Housing is an organization that truly puts the needs of their clients first. They do not waste any time making sure that the needs of their clients are met. They go beyond their call to make sure that families gets food, shelter and human services on a daily basis. They are clean and productive and I am very happy to know that such an organization exists and that they are meeting the needs of the people they serve.

The Great!

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

seeing how families have been fed on a daily basis and witnessing the transition from living in transitional housing to moving into permanent housing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The way they care for the families they serve. Not only do they make sure that the needs of the families are met, they also follow-up with them once they have moved on into permanent housing

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

People with compassion who truly understand the needs of the homeless

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Spread their knowledge and expertise on a national level. They could also make sure that more families who are homeless, have a safe and clean environment to go to for food and shelter.

When I was first introduced to Nazareth Housing many years ago, Sister Marion Agnes, its founder touched my heart. Her vision and commitment to fulfilling that vision is awe inspiring. Since then I have continued my support because the staff has continued to fulfill that vision and inspire me with their amazingly effective program. The people reached and served are lifted and supported with housing and food and education (and more) but, maybe more importantly are welcomed with warmth and love. They are nurtured and respected and stay in touch with staff even after their first year. I have tried to do may part by providing Christmas Gifts, books for the reading program and raising funds to buy food certificates and metro tickets and spreading the word about these wonderful people and their highly effective program. I am blessed to be a part of the Nazareth Housing family.

The staff is extraordinary. They are friendly, warm and enthusiastic. This is very important because people need to be welcomed and embraced and given a human connection before they can accept support, move forward and reclaim their lives.

I team-lead the Read to Me project at Nazareth Housing. Volunteers from New York Cares show up each month to take the children to the public library. Afterward, we return to the shelter for crafts and more reading. I've worked with them for more than five years and they are wonderful, caring people who do so much with every resource available to them.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the feeling that we are making a difference, one kid at a time.

bring so many in from the cold and help them to find the way toward self-sufficiency.

Ways to make it better...

some of the case workers had stayed on rather than move on to other things. I think this is because of limited funding and the agency not being able to pay well enough. They do what they can, but I've seen some great people move on and that's sad.

Nazareth Housing, Inc. is one of my charities of choice. In these economic times we all think twice before giving. What I hear and read about this charity is that it is helping people regain dignity and respect and teaching them to give back to the community.

I have worked closely with the NH implementing programs to work with familes such as Financial Literacy, Job Skills Training, Women's Cancer Prevention, and Health & Wellness workshops. This was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had to date as a volunteer in NYC. I am a member of the New York Junior League and have volunteered at numerous organizations...to date I must say NH is a one of a kind organizations who truly care about those they serve.

The Great!

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

hearing personal testimonies of those served through Nazareth Housing and the way it has changed their lives.
