Review for Housing Forward, Maywood, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The West Cook YMCA located in Oak Park has been proud to collaborate again with PADS in 2012. Our significant first year of association with the "Career Passport" program has resulted in a number of PADS clients finding transitional housing with us as they work their way back into the mainstream of life and employment. Our staff has also enjoyed doing its part by providing sack lunches for PADS the first Monday of each month. As a cause-driven charity ourselves, we at the Y fully understand the importance of strengthening the foundations of the community we serve. Our collaborative engagement with PADS is representative of our commitment to social responsibility.

Review for Housing Forward, Maywood, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As the CEO of the West Cook Y, we are pleased and proud of our collaborative association with West Suburban PADS. As a charity ourselves we understand the importance of a strong mission, committed leadership and staff and passionate volunteer support. PADS has this and more. It is one of the reasons we, as Y staff, bag lunches for PADS clients once a month and include PADS clients in our annual Thanksgiving dinner. We look forward to working with PADS on the Career Passport program in 2011.

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

working with them in collaborative efforts with the Y and the Community Foundation.

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

continue to find innovative and relevant ways to tell their story.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I am a collaborative partner in the nonprofit community.
