Review for Keren Simchas Chosson V'Kallah, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have learned from personal experience that the admin of KSCVK are honest....to say the least, and they are loving, caring and desiring to make a difference with what they do.

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

they helped me out when I did not have money for my first child's wedding. We had been scammed, and did not have our savings, and they came through and the wedding was great. They even helped me do the wedding on that day, with all the details.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them more money and more staff to continue to increase their work!

Role:  Donor & they helped me with making a wedding I was not able to do under the circumstances.
 

Review for Keren Simchas Chosson V'Kallah, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

before our first child (daughter)became engaged, we discovered that we were victims of a scam involving all the money we had saved towards our children's wedding/s. Devorah found out about it (since we live in the same neighborhood) and contacted me. She helped us out with all necessary expenses which we could not deal with at that point. We did give her money back at a later date, but she did not expect that, and was willing to help us in any way she could. She saved us in our situation, we didnt know what else we would do

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

kindness and the willingness and desire to help a young jewish couple move on after having an appropriate wedding.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give an office and a secretary, a specific work computer, and all necessary accessories to make things more organized and effective.

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

Devorah's warmth and enthusiasm in wanting to help us,and her personal touch to all involved.

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

warm and kind and devoted.

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

go far, but also needs staff that will be organized and work together well to continue the work it is doing.

Ways to make it better...

Devorah would have the finances to have a secretary or a proper office with which to expand and organize the work

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money ! (and some organizational skills)

One thing I'd also say is that...

Devorah's husband and children are just as kind and devoted and wonderful!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & helped her with fundraisers, posting flyers, making phone calls, and even taking her son to my house occasionally.
