The Center on Holocaust Survivor Care and Institute on Aging and Trauma awards grants to a diverse cohort of nonprofit organizations through five programs.
All subgrantees are supported by The Center’s staff who assist with grant administration, training on PCTI care, and technical consultation on program evaluations.
The Expanded Critical Supports Program grants are awarded to Jewish Federations to provide a community-based approach to PCTI care. Through the program, Jewish Federations convene local and diverse Leadership Councils of aging services providers to assess, prioritize, and fund the critical support needs of Holocaust survivors, older adults with a history of trauma, and their family caregivers.
The Innovations Program grants are awarded to organizations to develop, implement, and evaluate innovations in PCTI care for Holocaust survivors, older adults with a history of trauma, and their family caregivers. Programs include physical health and wellness, mental health, cognitive support, socialization, family caregiver support, and case management.
The National Network Program grants are awarded to organizations with large networks of agencies to develop, implement, and scale innovations in PCTI care for Holocaust survivors, older adults with a history of trauma, and their family caregivers.
The Promising Practices Program is awarded to organizations that have demonstrated successful outcomes in PCTI care through the Innovations Program.
KAVOD SHEF is a partnership between Federation communities and KAVOD, a nonprofit providing emergency assistance to Holocaust survivors. This partnership offers grants for outreach and direct services to support Holocaust survivors.
