NEW FOUNDATION CENTER INC
February 16, 2011
I have been with New Foundation center for over five years. Without a doubt it has changed my life. I am much less paranoid and have many friends who are members. The staff under Beth Dvorak and Susan Shimon are excellent and professional. I have served on the Members' Council and also started a library of Recovery information there. I cannot tell you how much it would mean to us if we won this award. With the groups I have attended I have learned a lot and my own boundaries are defined much more so than when I first arrived. I have also sat in on the selection committee to choose our Program Director Beth Dvorak. She has added a dimension to our Programs and lives while I have been there. Sue Shimon is an assett which we cannot begin to fathom as members. She is without a doubt the compassionate and caring leader whom we appreciate more and more each day. Thank yous go to the staff and my friends whom I love. Our organization could use and develop tremendously with this award.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
meeting new people, and enriching my life, and become a vocal advocate for myself and my member friends! New Foundation Center grants me peace of mind.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Grant Social Activities again each Friday which ceased with less or no funding from the state of Illinnois, and grant us a Member's Appreciation Day again. In other words more funds for us means growth and more services like lunch again each day. People here rely upon New Foundation Center tremendously.
Client Served & I learned a great deal from everyone at NewFoundation Center and matured and no longer am closeted in my home!.
