Holocaust Survivor Assistance Program

Broward County has one of the largest Holocaust survivor populations in the United States.  The professional staff of the Holocaust Survivor Assistance Program provide compassionate support to survivors of the Holocaust by coordinating benefits and services to meet their unique needs.

We have the expertise to identify – and the sensitivity to address – the medical, social, financial and emotional needs of Jewish survivors of the Holocaust.

How we assist:

  • Navigate the benefits application process for reparations
  • Provide case management and care coordination
  • Provide consultation and professional training
  • Offer counseling and support groups
  • Provide companionship and transportation
  • Provide respite care to caregivers
  • Offer 24/7 emergency response system

Our program receives funding from the Claims Conference (The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.)

Volunteer

  • Friendly Visitors – Our Friendly Visitor program matches volunteers with socially isolated and often homebound Holocaust survivors. Volunteers meet for at least one hour every week to provide companionship and a social connection. (Temporarily suspended due to COVID-19.)
  • Friendly Caller – Friendly Caller volunteers call isolated, homebound Holocaust survivors once a week. As a Friendly Caller, volunteers check in, chat and make sure the person is doing well. (Temporarily suspended due to COVID-19.)
  • Food Card Delivery Program – Volunteers are needed to make regular monthly home deliveries of grocery gift cards. Each volunteer delivers grocery cards to a group of survivors. This requires driving to GJFS to pick up the gift cards and delivering the gift cards to their homes.
