Holocaust Survivor Services* is a program of the seniors department of Jewish Family Services. It provides assistance to eligible Holocaust Survivors to apply for different types of help such as:

  • Compensation programs of the Claims Conference
  • Financial assistance
  • Home Support services

We are dedicated to helping our aging clients with their unique needs in living independently to the best of their ability for as long as possible. We treat each individual with respect and dignity. If we cannot meet a client’s needs, information and advocacy are provided and referrals are made to other agencies that are better equipped to do so.

If you or someone you know is a Holocaust survivor, you may be eligible for all or some of these services, please contact Rita Shinkar, at or 604-558-5701.

* A Holocaust survivor is considered a person who suffered persecution due to his or her Jewish nationality, lived in a Ghetto, survived a concentration camp and/or who had to flee or evacuate from the place of persecution.
