Center lane in white plains ny. What a great program....for LGBTQ.I am a parent of a transgender child.thank god for this support group. I've learned so much
My sister committed suicide. It has been a long family recovery period. Attending the suicide support group has been invaluable.
I have had experience with Lenore and the WHW classes. I found I always learn something new, even if it's one thing. When you are not working, as I am, it is really great to have support in this tough time. I have also learned of different programs that have helped to make a little easier finacially, that I did not know of previously. Lenore is a delight and I look forward to seeing her smiling face when I go to a seminar or class. I am so appreciative of these services.
I have been a client of WJCS and I am so grateful for the help I received. I started going because my husband is a compulsive gambler and our home life was awful because of it. We also attend GA and Gam-Anon but I felt we still needed more. My husband started to see Frank Limone, gambling counselor, and getting help from him. Then I started seeing Frank for my theraspy. We had individual couseling, couples counseling and group therapy. I have to say that the help and support we received from WJCS has made a tremendous difference in our lives. I would and DO recommend WJCS to people in need of help. Unfortunately, the gambling program closed and that is very sad.
I was unemployed for a year and am now 'underemployed' for about a year. WJCS is some place I continue to follow. They have informative emails, workshops, and also present job opportunities. One of the exceptional things about WJCS is that many of their programs are geared toward women.
WJCS' Connect-to-Care is a life-saving organization, providing everything from a quiet place to use a computer, to food, snacks, hot drinks, one-to-one counseling, excellent workshops on topics such as using LinkedIn and perfecting your interviewing skills, along with bankruptcy planning (if needed) and information on low-cost medical insurance (to name just a few services offered). Aside from the practical, Connect-to-Care is a place to go to find a truly caring (and professional) staff whose sole purpose is to help fellow Jews affected by the economic downturn.
i am a divorced mother of 2 and now an empty nester trying to "redefine" myself and find employment while reevaluating my goals and self worth. I have been out of work for some time and confidence is not exactly oozing from my back pocket. i have found mentors, friends and many wonderful resources at Connect2Care (C2C) that have become invaluable to me as i navigate down unchartered roads. C2C is unique in what they provide and how they provide it. With warmth, perspective, patience and wisdom, they provide the equivalent of "home cooking" for the mind that nurtures the soul. Because of my experiences at C2C, i am inspired to maintain a positive outlook and keep moving forward during these times of change and economic uncertainty. I will be successful and when i am, i have C2C to thank for it.
After the loss of our family business, I heard about the services offered by WJCS.from a friend of mine who participated in workshops offered and ended up landing a part time job. I knew that I needed to find the wherewithal and the confidence to pick myself up, write a resume and job hunt. I needed to be around others like myself who suddenly found themselves down on their luck. I have since availed myself of support group type Friday afternoon discussions as well as a variety of services, such as networking and resume building workshops. The wholehearted warmth and genuine caring of the WJCS staff is so welcome when one is undergoing such challenges as I have to face. I am sincerely thankful to have been able to find these excellent services, locally and free of charge, at this very sad and unexpected turn of events in my personal life. I am now back at work, feeling constructive and fulfulled as a teacher. Thank you for offering these services to me and others like me at a time when I felt so alone and helpless.
