I've occasionally recommended neighbors for rent assistance. It's been women who have had temporary difficulty. I've also sent women, immigrants, who've needed help with transportation costs due to family situations that required their presence.
When I was first introduced to Nazareth Housing many years ago, Sister Marion Agnes, its founder touched my heart. Her vision and commitment to fulfilling that vision is awe inspiring. Since then I have continued my support because the staff has continued to fulfill that vision and inspire me with their amazingly effective program. The people reached and served are lifted and supported with housing and food and education (and more) but, maybe more importantly are welcomed with warmth and love. They are nurtured and respected and stay in touch with staff even after their first year. I have tried to do may part by providing Christmas Gifts, books for the reading program and raising funds to buy food certificates and metro tickets and spreading the word about these wonderful people and their highly effective program. I am blessed to be a part of the Nazareth Housing family.
Nazareth Housing, Inc. is one of my charities of choice. In these economic times we all think twice before giving. What I hear and read about this charity is that it is helping people regain dignity and respect and teaching them to give back to the community.
The programs offered to clients at Nazareth Housing are aimed at providing skills and resources to help them reach self-sufficiency.
I have donated to Nazareth Housing because I understand the great need for assistance; poverty is rising beyond an uncontrolable rate. Michael Callaghan along with his staff work tirelessly to bring awareness to the increase in homelessness in the New York City area. Being a single mother, I just cringe at the thought of being like many single mothers homeless and not being able to provide shelter for my children. Donating is easy, simple and can be any dollar amount. I have even been able to donate simple items as cleaning tools, sheets, towels, etc.
Well-run and highly professional organization. Nazareth tries to meet the needs of all who come to its doors. With the number of those in need increasingly greatly in recent months, I know personally that the folks at Nazareth have continued to serve the community with both quality and distinction. I have offered financial support to Nazareth for the past three years, and firmly believe that every dollar is properly accounted for and well spent
