In partnership with Jewish Family Service of San Diego, Jewish Federation of Orange County is deeply committed to ensuring that Holocaust survivors are able to age with dignity—often making the difference in whether they can remain in their own homes at this vulnerable time of their lives.

Our Committment to Care
The Generosity of Donors - Jewish Federation of Orange County raises critical funds needed to provide care to local Holocaust survivors. Through the generosity of donors in our community, Holocaust survivors receive financial assistance and in-home care which enable them to live safely and independently in their homes, maintain their cherished social networks, and age with dignity. Financial assistance helps Holocaust survivors put food on the table, keep the lights and heat/air conditioning on, and purchase critical items like medication, eyeglasses, hearing aids, and medical alerts. In-home services include personal and nursing care, chore and errand assistance, transportation and housekeeping.
Make a donation today to help us continue to provide exceptional care for our cherished survivors. Questions? Contact Stephanie Epstein, Chief Philanthropy Office at Philanthropy@JFFS.org
The Support of Volunteers – Volunteers help to ensure the health and wellbeing of isolated Holocaust survivors by developing caring, supportive relationships and helping them stay connected to community. As an agency that works with vulnerable populations, during COVID there are modified volunteer opportunities to meet public health recommendations and practices.

Holocaust and Remembrance: Jewish Federation’s Impact
As the needs of aging Holocaust survivors increase, Jewish Federation of Orange County provides critical funding to ensure that local Holocaust survivors receive the care they deserve. At the same time, amid rising antisemitism and declining awareness of the Holocaust, we fund meaningful programs that support Holocaust education.
