Survivor Fund


Gulf Coast JFCS assists nearly
300 Holocaust Survivors
throughout Greater Tampa Bay

who require varying levels of assistance for essential daily living activities.

Over 30% of survivors live in poverty, and for others, the high cost of medical and home care assistance have depleted their financial reserves.

This results in a significant gap in needed care. Your generosity helps survivors live safely and comfortably with dignity in their homes for as long as possible.

The Holocaust Survivor Urgent Care Fund was established to bridge the funding gap for urgently needed homecare and other vital support for Holocaust survivors to preserve their dignity and independence for as long as remains safe.
