JFSA’s commitment to Holocaust Survivors is deep and steadfast. Since 1996, JFSA has provided thousands of survivors support and services to give comfort and strength.

Community support is a big component of the program as well. Services include:
- Help with reparations claims
- Care Coordination
- Financial assistance for income-eligible individuals, including subsidies for Lifeline, home care, case management, dental care or other needs
- Personal care light housekeeping, home cleaning, transportation
- TOV (Tikkun Olam Volunteers) Friendly Visitors (Click here to learn more) specially trained community volunteers who provide social companionship to survivors.

The Program receives financing from the Claims Conference (The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany) and also from the Emergency Assistance Program for Nazi Victims at the direction of the United States District Court supervising the lawsuit In Re: Holocaust Victim Assets Litigation (Swiss Banks).
