Westchester Jewish Community Services, Inc.
November 12, 2009

I have been attending Connect to Care workshops for the past few weeks and have found them very helpful in educating me for my job search and the range of other support services very broad. I find the workshops very helpful, and they cover the whole range of topics of interest an necessity to the unemplyed. Their facility is comfortable, easy to access and the staff is warm and welcoming.

MATAN, Inc.
October 30, 2009

had the opportunity to visit a Matan class for young children, one for adolescents and a holiday celebration for families. Without Matan these children would not have the opportunity to access religious education. Young children are cute, but the older children are not so “cute” and can be difficult to manage and miss out on many opportunities to interact and socialize with others their age.. Thanks to Matan they get the exposure to religious education and at the same time, an opportunity to socialize in an environment where they don’t have to feel “different.” The holiday celebration was a joyous occasion meticulously planned and organized by the Matan staff. Parents and children were having a wonderful time. Its not often that funders get to have the opportunity to see their money at work and feel a sense of pride and that they are making a difference in a really worthwhile way. I wish more people could become aware of the needs Matan is meeting and its success doing so.
