Jewish Family and Community Services Receives $30,000 Grant | News, Sports, Jobs

YOUNGSTOWN — Jewish Family & Community Services received a $30,000 grant from the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board.

The funding will be used to help seniors through JFCS’ seniors outreach programs and its guardianship program.

Seniors Outreach funding will help purchase technology for seniors, helping them with basic necessities such as food. It will also allow JFCS to continue offering free programs for aging well, such as Caregiver Cafe, Tech Tuesdays, Grief Group and Lunch Bunch.

The guardianship program guarantees the safety of those unable to treat and protect themselves properly. JFCS helps by coordinating services, with money management, providing direction and assurance, and actively monitoring the situation for any changes. If necessary, JFCS can assume legal responsibility through guardianship or trusteeship.

Jewish Family and Community Services responds to the social service needs of the community through a variety of programs and services, including guardianship, counselling, elder outreach, and meals on wheels. For more information, visit JFCS is an agency of the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation.
