Our Clients and Their Auditors

Below are quotes from some of our current clients and their audit firms attesting to the quality of our services.

Our Clients

Newark Emergency Service for Families

Victoria Michitsch CPA has served as the Financial Consultants to our agency for over a year assisting us with our day-to-day financial needs. They have also assisted us in developing a Fiscal Policy Manual to ensure the stability of our financial well-being.  The staff of professionals works with great integrity and expertise.

Tonya Bryan, Executive Director
Newark Emergency Services for Families

United Community Corporation

As the new Executive Director of a non profit organization faced with tremendous financial hurdles to clear, Victoria Michitsch's firm provided me with the financial reporting I needed to make responsible decisions. Their timely reporting and forecasting were key factors in our organization's removal from its high risk designation with New Jersey DCA.  Financial procedures were put into practice which allowed our organization to receive an annual audit with no findings.

Armstead Johnson, Executive Director
United Community Corporation

AAH Bergen

We have been working with Victoria Higgins and company for seven years and have found her services to be comprehensive and forward thinking. She and her staff have worked tirelessly to ensure we adhere to each grant restriction as well as managing the daily operations of our fiscal activities. Victoria has been an anchor for our organization and has ensured our continued success even through lean and difficult periods. It is a pleasure to work with Victoria and Liz and I am certain our collaboration will be a long-enduring one!

David L. Moore, Executive Director
AAH of Bergen County,Inc.

Arts Unbound Inc.

Non profit management is fraught with hard to understand rules, regulations and financing intricacies. The job of maintaining fiscal integrity is essential both for the large and small organization. Victoria Michitsch was brought on by a boutique organization for artists with disabilities at a time when expertise was needed to balance the books and achieve a streamlined process to coordinate a variety of funding sources. Once Victoria and her staff became involved, the organization grew in size and scope, allowing us to compete for larger grants and providing more time for marketing and promotion. I think it is essential to have such an effective combination of bookkeeping and accounting oversight.

Former Executive Director, Arts Unbound Inc. and Current Executive Director Supportive Housing Association of New Jersey (SHA)

Bergen County Education Association

We have been working with Victoria and Liz for over six years.  All of our accounting needs are met and audits are seamless.  They have become part of our team and are always available to us.  We highly recommend them to other organizations.

Roll Call Wheelchair Dance

Victoria and her team compiled all the documentation necessary to form our Organization and to obtain our 501 c 3 status.  They have written our grant applications resulting in the receipt of our first grant awards. With their guidance, Roll Call Wheelchair Dance has come to fruition as a viable and funded nonprofit organization.  We highly recommend them to all nonprofit organizations!

Visiting Homemaker Home Health Aide Service of Bergen County

Victoria and Liz had worked with our agency for a number of years.  They have been consistently thorough and professional and extremely responsive to all of our particular needs.  They have been proactive in seeking out ways to enhance our operations. I highly recommend their services.

Eleanor R. Frenkel, MS, CSW,  Executive Director
VHS of Bergen County

Young World Day School, Inc.

We first used Victoria Michitsch, CPA as our audit firm in 2009. During our audit, Victoria made recommendations to improve our financial processes and limit our exposure or risk. Our relationship grew until The Firm took over our in-house accounting functions, migrating our invoicing and financial reporting to QuickBooks. As head of school, I am always current on our financial position and confident that we are in compliance. As a result, our annual audits with Savastano, Kaufman & Company are painless. Victoria is always eager to brainstorm ways to better position your company for financial success. Not-for-profit can be lonely at the top, but with The Firm you know you always have someone watching your back.

Kimberly S. Watkins, Executive Director
Young World Day School

Victoria and her staff have been so beneficial to our local organization. The computer program she put in place helps us manage our not-for-profit organization and enables us to see our costs more clearly. It also helps us manage our programs. Her guidance has been invaluable.
