Metropolitan New York Coordinating Council on Jewish Poverty
October 23, 2009
I had been looking for affordable housing in New York City for senior citizens for almost three years without success. I was referred to Met Council by a family friend whose father is Jewish. She knew about Met Council's effort to provide such housing without respect to a person's ethnic background or religion, and she provided me information on how to apply for such housing owned and managed by Met Council. I received a response from Met Council within a short time and after a human and professionally run interview was accepted and awarded an apartment even though I am not Jewish. The apartment building was new, clean, located in a nice neighborhood, and professionally managed. In every contact I have had with Met Council people, I have been treated with kindness and respect. I ask that they receive support for all the good work they are doing for people.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
finding affordable housing for seniors.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
how people oriented they are.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
friendly, personal, and professional.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
provide even more help for people in need.
