We are a source of comfort and care for those in need.
Federation supports one of the largest, strongest and most enduring networks of social services in North America, ensuring that everyone in our communities can live with dignity.
We fund skilled providers who expertly care for homebound seniors and for people of all ages with disabilities. Counselors who help troubled families overcome difficulties. And programs that help struggling adults put food on their tables and pay their rent.
In Washington, we’re a powerful advocate for policy changes and reforms that improve quality of life and services for the most vulnerable.
We’ve provided tens of thousands of ailing Holocaust survivors—one of four of whom live in poverty—with home health care, housing, nutrition and transportation services. Stocked the shelves of hundreds of food pantries. Helped make thousands of schools, camps, synagogues and community centers more accessible and inclusive.
The 2008 economic downturn had a major impact on the Jewish community. Donors became recipients, and Federation was there to help, retraining thousands of unemployed Baby Boomers for new careers and allocated hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants and loans to enable everyone from students to single mothers get back on their feet.
From the ABLE Act to Medicare, we’ve lobbied for groundbreaking legislation that directs new resources to the elderly and people with disabilities and so many more. We worked to insure that everyone, including people with special needs, could participate fully in Jewish life.
Our communities thrive when everyone’s needs are met. We’re here to serve—with compassion and respect.
