Jewish Family and Career Services responds to community needs in a multitude of ways. One of the ways is through an emergency assistance program. The mission of the program is to help people in economic crisis help themselves. Funds come from a variety of sources with varied forms of eligibility, generally for one-time assistance to help a family or individual regain self-sufficiency.
When funds are available, all callers first receive a basic telephone screening. If they are eligible for services, they are asked to provide documentation substantiating their needs, such as an overdue utility bill or cut-off notice, a lease or mortgage statement, social security card and government issued photo identification. In addition to assisting with an immediate need, the staff member will help to connect the individual to other community programs and resources.
