Aging Holocaust survivors require more nuanced care. The terrible trials they suffered in their earlier years, like malnutrition, can intensify the typical challenges that come with old age. The loss of a spouse or longtime friend can re-trigger traumas experienced in the past. That’s why our support is so critical. Our funding provides Holocaust survivors with counseling, home-based care to avoid institutionalization, and social programs that brighten their days.
Help us keep our promise to never forget and never abandon. Donate to the Community Initiative for Holocaust Survivors.
Covid-19 Crisis: Our Response
During the pandemic, elderly Holocaust survivors, living with advanced age and health issues, have faced increased risk of illness. Many remain sheltered in place, unable to shop for groceries or meet their friends. We’ve responded by funding food and meal delivery, emergency cash for rent, medicine and other basic needs, and virtual programming to give purpose to their days.
With many thanks to our generous donors and network of nonprofits for making all this possible.
