We draw on our knowledge and history of providing PCTI care to pilot and implement our new program: Tablets and Technology: Alleviating Isolation in Holocaust Survivors. JFS staff and volunteers teach at least 20 Russian- and English-speaking Holocaust survivors -- many of whom live below 150% of the federal poverty line -- to use tablet technology for socialization opportunities (FaceTime, Skype, YouTube, email, internet searches) and to improve their quality of life. JFS’s trauma-informed program ensure that survivors stay connected to the community, while also respecting their need for independence by teaching them how to communicate and interact with the world electronically.
