Review for Federation Of Organizations For The New York State Mentally Disabled, West Babylon, NY, USA
Federation of Organizations is a pioneer in peer-to-peer help across various diagnoses. From helping people with substance abuse issues, and multiple diagnoses, the organization has overseen a lot of programs that ensure the well-being of our most vulnerable populations in New York State.
I have been impressed with their foster grandparent program and in general with their outreach to seniors and people who require assisted living over the years.
I recommend this organization for its role in genuinely helping people who our society has "swept under the rug" and for whom care is not adequate. I have volunteered with Federation of Organizations in the past and found their staff and programs to be among the most inclusive and results-focused than almost any other organization in the United States.
Review for Catholic Near East Welfare Assoc Inc, New York, NY, USA
I first learned about Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA) in 2001. I am a repeat donor, and my first donation to CNEWA was in 2006, and subsequently have given to their work including year in 2015.
CNEWA fulfills a niche role in the humanitarian and spiritual aid world. They deliver aid through the local churches, libraries and community centers. This enables smarter use of resources and since CNEWA has been in existence for 90 years, they have a legacy of good work.
I would recommend this charity to any donor looking to expand their giving portfolio, or to anyone who wants to find better alignment with their values since many other organizations both religious and humanitarian have not kept up with many of the big changes in the world that make it impossible to deliver aid the way they did in the past.
Over the years, I have found CNEWA is forward-looking, nimble and clear about their core values, as well as the people they serve. This is why I gave them a 5-star rating on Great Non-Profits.
