At JFSGNH we understand and respect the aging process. Our licensed and caring professionals provide comprehensive assessments, care planning and case management, mental health counseling, family consultation and community education.

We can work with families to initially assess needs and then either provide in-house services or help connect them to various community services. This may include acting as a liaison with service providers and/or monitoring the care. As part of the consultation process we can assist the family by developing a care plan, providing information about available resources, help mediating with out-of-town relatives, and helping family members deal with their own stress in caregiving. For further information, contact Liz Davenport, LMSW at or call (203) 389-5599, ext. 117.

Holocaust Survivor Program
The Holocaust Survivors Program at JFSGNH focuses on helping survivors remain in their own homes and out of institutional care, for as long as possible. Some of the ways in which we support Holocaust survivors include…

  • Case Management
  • Emergency Assistance with Unexpected Expenses
  • Ongoing Assistance with the cost of Home Care
  • Assistance with Applications for Reparations and Compensation Programs sponsored by Germany and other formerly Nazi-Occupied Nations.
  • Use of the JFSGNH Food Pantry & Nutritional Health Center

Funding for this program is provided in large part by the Claims Conference, the single largest organization in the world working to secure compensation, restitution and assistance for survivors of the Holocaust. Donations from individuals and foundations also help us support survivors. For further information about the Holocaust Survivor Program, survivors and their families can contact Rachel Scolnic at (203) 389-5599, ext. 102 or email at
