Review for ST VINCENT SENIOR CITIZEN NUTRITION PROGRAM INC, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As volunteers my wife and I deliver hot meals one day each week to about 30 people, mainly seniors and disabled. This organization serves over 4400 meals daily including a lot of frozen meals and service to other meals on wheels and senior organizations. They have a staff of dedicated volunteers and wonderful employees who take their jobs very seriously. Money is always an issue but the scrimp and save and get by with whatever is sent their way.

Review for The Soldiers Project , North Hollywood, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Work begun by our Founder, Dr. Judith Broder, in 2006 was formally organized as The Soldiers Project in 2010. The organization offers free, unlimited, confidential counseling to veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan and to their families. Hundreds of licensed therapists volunteer thousands of hours each year to serve men and women who are coping with coming home after war. Although the VA and the military offer services to the best of their abilities it is not enough and often those needing help are reluctant to open up to "official" organizations. The families, employers, colleges and others in contact also need help and education about how to handle the issues that coming home creates. The Soldiers Project offers education, guidance and counseling on those issues where ever it is needed. It provides a large unfulfilled need.
