Review for New Foundation Center, Inc, Northfield, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We first learned about the New Foundation Center from a listing in "Make It Better" magazine in late 2009. After investigating what NFC did to change and improve lives of troubled and mentally-ill adults, my husband became a volunteer. In doing so, we have gained a better perspective and understanding of the issues facing our young adult daughter. While she is not a program participant, it is nevertheless wonderful to find an organization so pro-active, so caring, and so comprehensively supportive in giving self-esteem, purpose and true meaning to the lives of its members, as well as creating awareness among the general public.

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

going to some of their cultural events and visiting the center.

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

help open up space for new members and requalify long-term members no longer utilizing its services.

Role:  Volunteer & Helped write letters to state government in an effort to curb drastic budget cutting of social services.
