Since the 1940s, Jewish Family Service of San Diego has been addressing the needs of Holocaust survivors. For years, our survivors have expressed a desire to experience the world beyond doctor’s appointments, grocery stores, and other errands; to be with people from similar backgrounds who have endured similar traumas.

Our Serving Older Survivors Program is enhancing its PCTI services with activities that improve our survivors’ physical and mental health, with a special focus on Russian-speaking survivors. We offer regularly scheduled social-cultural opportunities for 40  isolated Holocaust survivors to improve their emotional and mental well-being, as well as  crucial JFS Foodmobile home-delivered kosher meals to 23 low-income, frail survivors.
