There are approximately 80,000 Holocaust survivors living in the United States. One-third of them live in poverty and desperately need aid to supply food, medicine and household goods.
KAVOD partners with Jewish Family Service and other organizations that work with Survivors. The agency makes requests on behalf of the Survivors on a confidential basis. KAVOD provides gift cards from local grocery stores or pharmacies and will pay a provider directly to assist them with whatever emergency or day-to-day needs that they have. The decisions of KAVOD are overseen by a diverse and experienced Board of community leaders, most of whom are children of Survivors.
It is unconscionable and unacceptable that these courageous people, who’ve endured so much already, are living their remaining years struggling with day-to-day essential needs. KAVOD was created to help these Survivors live their remaining years with dignity and honor. KAVOD is honored to be recognized by Guide Star with the 2021 Platinum Seal of Transparency.
One hundred percent of all donations received by KAVOD are distributed to the survivors.
The need is growing every day. Sadly, there is a limited time to support this vulnerable senior community
For as little as $1 you can help Holocaust Survivors living in poverty here in the US get the food, medicine and household items they need.
