Review for NATIONAL COUNCIL OF JEWISH WOMEN INCORPORATED, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It has been both satisfying and frustrating working to advance the wonderful programs of NCJW/LA -- satisfying because often, I can see how my effort will benefit a woman and/or a child. The benefit may be small but it is there. For example, preparing food packages for the elderly homebound; reading to a child at an elementary school library (which library would otherwise be non-functioning without NCJW/LA volunteer support); tutoring a 3rd grader struggling with her arithmetic. What is frustrating is that so many families are so underserved by a City that is patently failing them.

Review for NATIONAL COUNCIL OF JEWISH WOMEN INCORPORATED, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been an NCJW/LA member and have volunteered in the Alexandria House after-school program for over 6 years. Now I'm also involved in many other NCJW/LA programs. In short, NCJW/LA has created well-thought-out, compassionate, beautifully run programs for women, children and families that understand and respond directly and immediately to the community's needs. I'm proud to be part of this organization.

Role:  Volunteer & Alexandria House after-school tutoring and enrichment program for children: I've seen wonderful youngsters grow into wonderful teens who love coming to Alexandria House because it's like a "second home". Women Making a Difference steering committee membe.
