Review for The Maura Clarke-Ita Ford (MCIF) Center, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a member of the board since 2006 and chair since 2008. The Maura Clarke-Ita Ford Center is an "under the radar" organization that accomplishes a great deal with limited resources. The center provides vital services to the Bushwick community - English as a Second Language Classes, Pre-GED and GED classes, Citizen classes, job training and empowerment seminars. I am very proud to be a part of the organization.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
