Holocaust Survivor Program

We provide a range of services for our neighbors who survived the Holocaust and need support to live independently.

At JSSA, we’re putting our Jewish values to work with our enduring commitment to provide services for Holocaust survivors who need assistance to live independently in our community.

JSSA provides multiple services for men and women who survived the Holocaust and meet the income and other program qualifications. These services include:

  • Ongoing care coordination
  • Personal care assistance
  • Homemaker assistance
  • Escorted transportation to medical appointments
  • Kosher meal delivery
  • Dental, hearing, and eye care support
  • Limited urgent needs assistance
  • Social activities
  • Advance care planning

To receive grant-subsidized JSSA services, survivors must meet specified program qualifications and income limits. Please note that all services are available on a full-fee basis for survivors who exceed financial qualifications.

Social services for Jewish Nazi victims are supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

Testimonial

When JSSA contacted me about visiting Anatol – a Russian Holocaust survivor – I was worried that we would find it hard to communicate. But now, Thursday evenings have become the highlight of my week. It's funny, I wanted to volunteer to give back, but it's Anatol who's giving so much to me.
