Review for DOROT, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dorot has given me an opportunity to meet a senior citizen in the community who has led an amazing life. I love hearing her stories and wisdom. I recently moved to New York where I hardly knew anyone. She used to sit a home alone with rarely any visitors. Now, we have each other. I'm so glad I found Dorot!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the smile on my new friend's face.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have them recruit more young adults. Pairing young adults with elderly individuals is a beautiful thing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting to know someone I might otherwise not have met. It feels good to add a little sunshine to their life, too!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very helpful and knowledgeable. The woman at the front desk so sweet and welcoming!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

promote itself to the community and provide more opportunities to enrich the lives of its senior citizens.

Ways to make it better...

they had gotten me started sooner! I understand that the application process takes time. I just felt bad having my person wait five weeks to meet me again.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting enough volunteers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I look forward to continuing my volunteering with Dorot.
