Nechama is amazing! Last summer our community was hit by a devastating flood. Homes and possessions were destroyed and hope was threatened! However, Nechama came into town and lead the way toward recovery! Their personnel, experience, knowledge, resources/equipment and most importantly desire to help people brought our community hope and inspiration. Words can not adequately express my gratitude for Nechama but I will forever be thankful for the way they assisted our community in our time of need.

Nechama gave us a great tour of their facility back in January. They did a wonderful job of explaining their organizations mission and how they help during natural disasters. I am a youth director for a synagogue and brought my youth group members. They had a great time watching the movie, touring the garage, looking at the tools and eating MRE meals!

I am a youth adviser for 7th and 8th graders in the area. I took my group for a tour of NECHAMA and it was fantastic! This was a very eye-opening event for some of them who had never considered the impact that a disaster might have on their own homes, much less a family who had very few resources. At the end of the day, the kids had a good idea of the wonderful work that NECHAMA does to help communities in need. They were also enthusiastic about volunteering with NECHAMA in the future. I very strongly recommend NECHAMA.
