JFS Awarded JFNA Grant to Increase Social and Community Connections

JFS has been awarded a multi-year, $200,000 grant from Jewish Federations of North America’s Center on Holocaust Survivor Care and Institute on Aging and Trauma (JFNA) to increase social and community connections for Russian-speaking older adults with a history of trauma in the East Metro, many of whom are Holocaust survivors.

Through these connections, the program will help connect people to communities and supportive resources including trauma-informed mental health care and social and cultural activities.

The new Community Connections program will be free and open to Russian speaking seniors in the East Metro.
