Harnessing the power of collective expertise, we work with diverse partners across a range of service areas to deliver the best care possible to Holocaust Survivors, older adults with a history of trauma, and their family caregivers. Partnerships are essential to improving care, as they enable us to better understand the unique needs and strengths of communities and how to extend support to all individuals.
Jewish Family Service Opportunities
Jewish Family Service offers comprehensive support services to help Holocaust Survivors maintain their health, independence, and connection to the community. They offer a full system of support, beginning with care management proved by a trauma-informed specialist. Services also include: advocacy, translation services, assistance with claims forms, medical escort, homemaker services, and emergency funding often for medical treatment. Clients receive assistance with paying for homecare and emergency needs through funding from the Claims Conference, the Change a Life Foundation, and private donations.
The Kibitz Call Line is a social call program that provides invaluable connections for Jewish seniors who may be at an elevated risk of loneliness or social isolation. Weekly social conversations make a positive difference in the lives of participants and volunteers.
