How We Help

Our compassionate staff provides critical assistance with:

  • The reparations process
  • Care management
  • Basic needs
  • Socialization and caregiver support
  • Cultural enrichment through social and educational programming

Holocaust Survivors also have access to the variety of community services available to all the older adults we serve, such as counseling, resource navigation, financial assistance and virtual programming.

This programming is funded primarily by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany and JewishColumbus. Our ability to provide support for Holocaust Survivors was dramatically increased when JewishColumbus launched the Holocaust Survivor Initiative, with donations from the local supporters and matching funds provided by the Wexner Family Foundation. Between 2014 and 2022, Jewish Family Services leveraged Holocaust Survivor Initiative funding to attract over $11.5 million in additional support for our work with Survivors.

Supporting Dignity

Featuring Garett Ray

Guido was a Holocaust survivor. He was able to live independently until he suffered a fall. We were able to ensure that Guido continued to live in dignity and our team provided support as his health declined.
