We're focused on providing socialization programs and case work to Holocaust survivors using PCTI principles. Together with several Jewish community councils, our services focus on low-income survivors from Orthodox and/or Russian backgrounds. Monthly socialization programs  provide kosher meals and fun cultural programming to lift the spirits of this increasingly homebound population, and we provide transporation. The program not only helps connect more survivors with our work, but also provides an opportunity for our clients to have an informal check-in with their social worker. Each client receives an initial assessment and services as needed, including benefits enrollment, food pantry access, crisis intervention, and referrals to other agencies.
