The San Diego Jewish community’s ability to address the needs of the Jewish poor is significantly limited due to the lack of community data, difficulty accessing and navigating resources, and a Jewish community that is not networked to support those struggling to make ends meet.
Federation’s role in addressing Jewish Poverty is to convene our communities’ agencies and leaders to better understand our community and mitigate shortcomings in the services provided.
We will increase coordination among both Jewish and non-Jewish entities serving our community.
We will map the different offerings to ensure that all efforts are maximized.
Focusing on increasing community awareness of challenges and opportunities.
Encouraging organizations to work together on innovative solutions.
