My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Hias Inc, Silver Spring, MD, USA
I consider HIAS as the Righteous among the Nations of the nonprofit world. As a person who experienced antisemitism first hand, even here in NYC of 2009, I can't stress enough the role that HIAS played throughout the past 130 years in saving people life. Browse HIAS website and read the horrific stories of some of the 400,000 Soviet Jews that HIAS assisted to immigrate to the United States. HIAS is the best kept secret of the nonprofit world. These days, when HIAS provides protection and assistance to some of the most vulnerable refugee populations around the world, I truly believe that it's time to pay a tribute to this outstanding organization.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
HIAS has helped to rescue and resettle more than 4.5 million refugees since it began operations in 1881, and the great spirit of the employees assist in keeping the mission alive.
