Would you recommend Chinatown Manpower Project Inc.?

This is a very nice organization in the heart of Chinatown. The atmosphere is mellow and respectful. The visiting fellow that I had the opportunity to work on this project with was wonderful; open, smart, kind, and highly appreciative of my time and input.
