Review for Metropolitan New York Coordinating Council on Jewish Poverty, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

We painted the apartment of one of Met Council's clients, so he could qualify for public benefits. Getting to help a person and see actual results was very rewarding for everyone involved. It's great that Met Council provides their clients with whatever they need to get back on their feet, and does this not only through their own services, but also through getting volunteers involved.

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

hard working and dedicated!

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

help a lot more New Yorkers.

Ways to make it better...

the volunteer site was not so far from my home, but that can't be avoided. Having more help from the client's Social Worker involved would have been helpful, so we could have known really what needed to be done for the client to be eligible for Section 8
