As the coronavirus crisis has unfolded, UJA and our network of nonprofits have been responding to drastically mounting and evolving needs. We’ve allocated more than $46 million to date to meet needs across the New York region and Israel, including:

Now, as New York begins to reopen, we’re focused on what’s needed to help our community get back on its feet. Increasing food distribution to help pantries meet rising demand. Workforce development programs that can get the newly unemployed back to stability. Mental health support to help those suffering from the effects of isolation, fear, anxiety, food insecurity, substance abuse, domestic abuse, and more.

This may be a challenge unlike any we’ve faced before, but UJA was built for this moment. We’re working around the clock with our diverse and interconnected network to help all those counting on us.

We also know that this is a crisis that has hit painfully close to home for so many of us. For anyone who is coping with illness or loss, our hearts go out to you.
