“And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting-places.” - Isaiah 32:18
All members of our community, our city and our country have the right to live in a safe and peaceful home. Having a warm home, a clean bed and food to eat are basic human needs that are often taken for granted.
But if you take a look around, you will see that there are many people in our own neighbourhoods and communities who do not share our good fortune. They may live with their children in an abusive home. They may be living in poverty in an uninhabitable environment, with insufficient food or beds. Or they may be homeless.
Whatever the situation, it is intolerable and a priority of Jewish Family and Child Service to make a change. But we cannot do it alone. We need your help!
Inside these pages you will read how Lena* and Sophia* have moved forward in their lives thanks to the support they received from Jewish Family & Child and about our Centre of Excellence, which is helping to transform the way we address poverty. Each story is a reflection of what JF&CS does and the support that we can offer as a result of the kindness and philanthropy of our community members.
Your gift is vital in ensuring that all community members can access the wide-breadth of services offered by Jewish Family and Child.
