HELP JFS ACCELERATE SOCIAL, ACADEMIC, AND HEALTH EQUITY.
Help frail older adults get the medical care and information they need to manage their health, improve their quality of life and live independently in the community. Our next Patient Navigator training is March 9th.
Bring joy and companionship to a lonely, isolated elder. Volunteers are matched with an elder and create opportunities to connect with neighbors, friends, family and the community.
Kehilla Connectors matches older, isolated Jewish adults with volunteers/volunteer families who provide companionship and transportation to Shabbat services and to other religious and/or cultural events.
Provide opportunities for social interaction with elders living independently in the community. Volunteers interact and engage over a group lunch, and as needed, serve lunch and assist with after-lunch programming.
Students and parents are invited to school for a family meal and to do homework in a supported environment. Volunteers help serve food, assist parents and students with homework, organize and hand out basic needs items provided to families at the dinner.
Improve families’ access to healthy, fresh produce. Depending on location, volunteers either pack the produce into bags for families to collect or assist families in selecting produce.
