Highlights From Our Agencies

Jewish Family & Career Services of Atlanta broke ground on March 17 to celebrate the start of construction on its Dunwoody campus expansion. Leaders from the community, JF&CS' capital campaign cabinet and generous donors to the campaign attended the ceremony, held on a beautiful sunny day. JF&CS will be renovating and expanding its facility to improve services for all clients as well as to accommodate a growing waitlist for specialized services. The nonsectarian nonprofit just completed an 18-month capital campaign to raise money for the project. The initial goal was $5.1 million, but it ended up totaling $6.6 million, thanks in part to a transformative gift from the Walter and Frances Bunzl Family Foundation that will name the new clinical services wing.

Jewish Family Service of Des Moines is AJFCA's newest member agency. Jody Caswell is the Director of the agency. We're excited to welcome them to the network.

Jewish Family Service of Cincinnati received a $60,000 grant from Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) to help Cincinnati's Jewish Holocaust survivors reduce isolation. The funding will be used to teach a variety of tablet-based programs to stay connected to family and friends.

Jewish Family Service Cincinnati is one of only 23 organizations to receive this funding through the JFNA's Center for Advancing Holocaust Survivor Care, which was recently launched following an award from the United States Department of Health and Human Services for up to $12 million over 5 years to advance innovations in person-centered, trauma-informed services for Holocaust survivors in the United States.

A recent review of this program has shown that Holocaust survivors who have received care management services and participated in the programs offered by the Center for Holocaust Survivors have enjoyed a better quality of life, including timely attention to their healthcare needs, emotional support and encouragement to engage in life review and other counseling to help them deal with loss and memories of trauma.
