I first worked with NECHAMA in January 2007 as part of their relief efforts in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. My most recent experience with NECHAMA was in July 2013 when I brought out a group to assist with their efforts on Long Island after Hurricane Sandy. Both times I found the process (from initial sign-up through the actual volunteer date(s)) to be very well organized and the staff to be extremely well trained and knowledgeable. The staff is able to work very quickly to get a group of virtually inexperienced volunteers up to speed about the task at hand. Because of the staff's great guidance, the volunteers feel very accomplished at the end of the day. I am looking forward to volunteering with NECHAMA again!
