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.

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.

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.

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...

When I helped serve the food at the Thanksgiving dinner, I was struck by the warmth among staff and old and new residents alike. Nazareth House fosters a spirit of hospitality as well as providing top notch services. They are working really hard to respond to the increased need in New York City.
