Our Holocaust Survivor Program is a service through Jewish Family Services for eligible Holocaust survivors*

  • Compensation programs of the Claims Conference
  • Financial assistance
  • Home Support services
  • Socialization and Special Events (click here for upcoming events)

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 rshinkar@jfsvancouver.ca 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.
