Last year JCS improved the quality of life for 630 Holocaust survivors through its comprehensive case management, personal care, nursing assessments, counseling, housekeeping, financial assistance, meals on wheels programs, as well as the assistance from volunteer companions.
Comprehensive Case Management
The JCS Holocaust Survivor Assistance Program — funded by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany — provides comprehensive Care Coordination services to Jewish Nazi victims in Miami-Dade County. These services are provided by Master’s level mental health professionals.
All clients are visited in their homes where a comprehensive assessment is completed using the Department of Elder Affairs assessment tool and the Claims Conference Home Care Services Diagnostic Form. Services are arranged and monitored by the care managers and may include personal care, heavy cleaning, transportation, meal delivery and emergency financial services.
The Reparations Specialist will conduct outreach throughout Miami-Dade County to educate and inform Holocaust Survivors of all current reparation applications.
The Reparation Specialist assists holocaust survivors in applying for individual compensation and reparations, including the Article 2 and/or Hardship Fund, which are required for Claims Conference-funded social services.
