This organizations serves a very special population of kosher-oberservant Jews in the Oak Park, Berkley and Southfield area. The volunteers work to make every clients experience one of dignity. When circumstances are reversed, several clients become new volunteers themselves. It is a smooth process and the clients help themselves to groceries, fresh fruits and vegetable, basics such as sugar and flour, and even fresh poultry when it is available. The Executive Director and the Board make efficient use of resources and are well regarded in the communities they serve.
With great care and loving support Yad Ezra welcomes those in need. The volunteers reflect the concern and respect for its clients that they deserve. It is a happy and productive place to put time and energy in to. It's a 5 Star organization! Best, Norine
A great organization. They feed the needy, with little fanfare. Give generously, and often. There are homeless and hungry families all year long, not just at the holidays.
Tried to give 5 stars, but website wouldn't let me. I am a former volunteer and now an active donor. We were married in April 2008 and we listed 3 non-profits for our guests to give tributes in our honor. Many gave to Yad Ezra, and we were overcome with joy from that tzedekah. Please think of Yad Ezra and third party donations, as we did! I gave money from my successful moving sale also! They let me send one check for many cards and they keep tabs as I request tributes! That is user friendly to do via email! They do a great job of sending tribute cards with the donations. Lea and the others understand this. The need is immense for funding, they showed us how they stretch the dollars to the max. Thank you YE. Laraine D. Farmington Hills, Michigan
I am a donor and I tried to assist as much as I can. I send checks for food basically and shelter. I very involved with the food program.
first of all it is a very well run orghanization that maximizes the moneys raised for the benifit of its recipients. The service people are warm and responsive as well as devoted. The organization also gives young people of varied backgrounds the opportunity to learn the joy of giving and the need for comiting to help others.
