Friends Foundation for the Aging Awards Grant to JFS
Posted on December 04, 2023
The Friends Foundation for the Aging (FFA) continues its support of Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS) by awarding a $30,000 grant to benefit supportive housing case management services for community members age 65 or older. The project will serve 75 older adults of which 25 will receive FFA-funded assistance including assessing financial standing, health care coverage, social services, programs and more.
“While JFS maintains a robust supportive housing program throughout the region, the funds provided by Friends Foundation for the Aging will ensure older adults can stay sustainably housed in familiar surroundings,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer. “With the current economic environment, and many older adults living on a fixed income, we want to make certain these individuals are able to remain comfortably in their own home.”
"It is so important for people to have someone to go to when life gets challenging; someone who can help navigate the services and resources that are available,” said Susan W. Hoskins, Executive Director of Friends Foundation for the Aging.
