Review for Jewish Family Services, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization helps people in the community address psycho social needs ranging from unemployment, holocaust survivors to adult care issues. This organization is available to the community at large but could be viewed as a haven for people who are Jewish. Many years ago, I was a recent Master level graduate and this agency was incredibly helpful to me

Review for New Directions Career Center, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer with Center for New Directions for going on 5 years. My work with the organization is very meaningful. I teach a course on “Feeling Fear and Getting the Job Anyway”. I am always so grateful for the work that New Directions does. I wonder what the woman who participate in the programs would do without the Center to help send them on course. The women need so much and I do believe the Center for New Directions provides invaluable guidance and direction. I am always welcome as a volunteer by the staff and participants and all the details for my meetings are well planned and coordinated. This is simply a terrific organization whose mission I cherish for helping people who need so much. Please let me know how I could be of greater service. Merry P. Korn
