Testimonial from Eugenia (Jenny) Efthimiopoulos, staff member
Recently I celebrated my 31st working anniversary at Maison Shalom!! That alone, speaks volumes. Not only do I consider working at Maison Shalom as the best job anyone can ask for, but it became my second family a long time ago. Going into work to see happy, smiling faces from the residents and from my co-workers was the best part of my day. Although the physical work was hard and challenging sometimes, there were always fun and very rewarding times as well. Going on outings to theater shows, cinemas, restaurants, museums and parks didn't feel like work but more of a family gathering to celebrate special moments. Creating special bonds with the parents, siblings and other family members of the residents was also something I came to appreciate tremendously throughout my 31 years at Maison Shalom
I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!
Testimonial from Mikaela Phung, volunteer
These Zoom calls have been truly amazing. Not only have I gained experience in learning how to create welcoming and engaging activities for the members of the group home, but more importantly I have also had the opportunity to get to know them individually. Especially in our current situation of Covid 19, I have learned that just like any of us right now, the residents of Maison Shalom really enjoy getting the chance to get engaged in social interactions with different people. I think that just a short conversation can make the world of difference in anyone’s day.
Testimonial from Sam Amar, volunteer
Volunteering at Maison Shalom has given me a very special opportunity to connect with the residents. Developing friendships with them has allowed me to learn about the realities that people with disabilities have to face.
Testimonial from Aviva Winterfeld, volunteer
I started volunteering during the Covid pandemic. I am the Shabbat guest; I visit outside in the yard while the residents are on the porch. It is such a joy to sing, say prayers and share stories. It is amazing to see the energy and enthusiasm in the participants. It is such fun for me and lifechanging.
Testimonial from Jenna Kliot, volunteer
Being able to Zoom with the residents of Maison Shalom has been a highlight of this crazy year. There are very few things that we can do during lockdown, but I am thankful that this is one of them. Maintaining my relationships with each resident has been so special and rewarding, and it wouldn't have been possible without this technology.
