With escalating food, utility and gas prices affecting us all, the rising costs of essentials and housing are especially challenging for those living in or on the edge of poverty. In partnership with Yad Chessed, we are working to expand access to support and resources for Jewish individuals and families in Western MA who are experiencing financial hardship, including emergency bill support, monthly food cards and case management.

Individuals or families in need of assistance can contact Yad Chessed directly at 781-487-2693 or info@yadchessed.org

If you would like to host a zoom conversation with JFS and Yad Chessed about your area needs, and to raise awareness of this new resource, please contact Rosalind Torrey, MPH at r.torrey@jfswm.org
