“The New Orleans Jewish Federation & JNOLA microgrant allowed me to renew my Louisiana & compact nursing licenses.  After a difficult two years serving New Orleanians as a frontline ICU responder during the COVID-19 pandemic, this grant felt like a kind ’thank you’ and support from my Jewish community to continue my work as a nurse.”
-Stefan K.
“I am so grateful for the microgrant. With it I was able to pay for a comprehensive two part-training for a very promising therapeutic modality for trauma called EMDR. I work at a non-profit healthcare clinic, where many of my clients could benefit from this type of treatment, which is hard to find outside of more expensive, private practice therapists. I have already begun to implement the training in my work. ”
-Danielle U.
“I am so grateful to the Federation’s micro-grant program, as it helped me obtain vital training in dementia care when starting my new Senior Care Management business last year. Becoming a Certified Dementia Practitioner has been invaluable to building Care NOLA’s services and reach.”
-Rachel E.
“I am so grateful to be a recipient of a Micro Grant from The Jewish Federation’s Mentorship Program.  The support of the Micro Grant provided me with an opportunity to gain fundamental training in the discipline of executive leadership coaching through the Co-Active Training Institute.  I learned the essential competencies within professional coaching from one of the premier coachings programs in the world.  The workshop served as an accelerant to my next career as a leadership coach in the Greater New Orleans area, and the Micro Grant made it easier for me to take that next step.”
-Josh D.
