Holocaust Survivors Assistance Program

No one can take away the pain of those who suffered in the Holocaust or the loved ones of those survivors who witness the effect on their family members each and everyday of their lives. However, what JFCS can do is provide small comforts and essential services such as home health aides, housekeeping, counseling, Kosher Meals on Wheels, case management, assistance with medical bills, and socialization services to those elderly survivors in our community. 

Through a grant from the Conference of Jewish Material Claims Against Germany and matching funds from JFCS, we provide these services to Monmouth County survivors. Forced to live without dignity in the early years of their lives, it is essential that they receive the help necessary to protect their dignity in the final years of their lives. Besides physical and financial assistance, it is crucial to provide recreation such as luncheons for socialization, speakers to stimulate the mind, and entertainment to feed the soul.
