Lois Davis Donates $1 million to Hebrew Shelter Home

The Hebrew Shelter Home is an important part of Lois Davis’s life. “It’s because I grew up a treasured child and was a loved wife,” she explains. “I was very fortunate to have been taken care of with love all of my life. Here there are people who weren’t as lucky as I was, and I want to help them.” That’s why Davis has established a $1 million endowment fund to support the Hebrew Shelter Home. The home provides temporary shelter in a kosher setting for women and children in the Jewish community facing homelessness and domestic violence. Working with the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and JFSA, Davis set up the fund to annually support the home’s capital improvements and programming for at-risk families there. Davis says she hopes The Lois J. and Larry Davis Family Endowment Fund –named after her and her late husband – will inspire others to join this effort and help raise the endowment to $3.5 million, which would significantly reduce the need for annual fundraising for the Home.
