I have had the great fortune of volunteering with NECHAMA for 15 years. While I am the Board (though I swore that I would never attend another meeting after I retired) my real passion is working as a volunteer in the field after the disaster. This is where I meet and work with some of the greatest people in the world -- both the other volunteers and our clients, the disaster victims. NECHAMA has built it's reputation based on the simple principle of "how can we continue to provide better service to our clients ..... those who have lost so much, so suddenly. The staff, though incredibly small in number, are among the most dedicated and compassionate people I have known. I can not count how many times I have heard a spontaneous comment from a volunteer say, "This has been a life changing experience. I certainly has for me!!
Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
Will you tell others about this organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
