Promoting and protecting children's health, and supporting Jewish families
Our volunteers see beyond the abstractions and statistics of poverty. They come to know real people with real needs. They begin with the basics, providing shelter, meals, and support services to homeless families. But many of them go on to do much more, creating new programs and partnerships to solve local problems and meet local needs.
Some have developed transitional housing. Others have established parenting classes and tutoring programs for children. Still others have set up health clinics, renovated housing, and created job-training programs.
Making a Difference
Every day, FFCF connects people who want to help with opportunities to make a difference.
Our volunteers give their time and talent in so many ways to help Jwish families and children in need. Our program provides assistance to low-income families with children while they strive to become self-sufficient. The program's goal is to reduce the number of families living in poverty, through employment and community resources. Families in this program qualify to receive help with needs such as employment, housing and child care.
To qualify for assistance, families must have very few assets and little or no income, contact Firer Family Charitable Foundation corporate office.
