Responding to Victims of Domestic Violence and Homelessness

The Jewish Family Service Association (JFSA) Hebrew Shelter Home, a Federation beneficiary, provides shelter to Jewish women and children seeking haven from domestic violence and homelessness, and safe, temporary housing for adult men. All clients are provided shelter services and a continuum of care from JFSA services as the core of their individualized, comprehensive, and wraparound case management plan.

Rebuilding Lives in Ukraine

When Jews face distress around the world the Federation works with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) to help. Recently, we have been helping Ukrainian Jews affected by political and economic instability. Displaced families are able to receive living accommodations, food, career assistance, and schooling.

Supporting Victims of Natural Disasters

When hurricanes devastated parts of Houston, Florida, and Puerto Rico in 2017, Cleveland was one of the first federations to send significant relief to victims of these natural disasters.
