Holocaust Community Service

Since 1999, Holocaust Community Services (HCS), a collaborative effort of Jewish Child and Family Services (JCFS), CJE SeniorLife and the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, in partnership with HIAS Chicago, has helped ensure that the Chicago Holocaust survivor community and their families can continue to live independently and with dignity.

The average age of a survivor is 79, with nearly a quarter who are 85 or older. The consequences of advanced aging are compounded by the physical and emotional horrors they endured during the war. As aging and frailty take their toll, the number of Holocaust survivors turning to community agencies has intensified.

HCS reaches out to approximately 800 Holocaust survivors and their families annually, offering support groups, socialization programs, and assistance with various Holocaust reparations and compensation programs. About half that number receives ongoing financial help with food, medication, home care or emergency needs. HCS case managers also facilitate in-home support, including personal care and housekeeping services, kosher food delivery, and transportation services. In addition, training for professionals who work with survivors and their families is provided to address the growing needs of aging survivors.

HCS is supported by social welfare grants from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc., and other generous foundations and donors. Approximately 75% of the total funding is from the Claims Conference, which recently increased its worldwide allocations by 21 percent for 2015, for a total of $365 million for 2015. Though a small portion of this additional funding will be allocated to local agencies, it will be spread across social service organizations serving Jewish Holocaust survivors in 47 countries to provide home care, hunger relief, medical care and transportation.

For more information on Holocaust Community Services at CJE, please call 773.508.1004.


The Program receives financing from the Claims Conference (The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany) and also for the Emergency Assistance Program for Nazi Victims at the direction of the United States District Court supervising the lawsuit In Re: Holocaust Victim Assets Litigation (Swiss Banks)
