“The work and the effort that our staff has put into the Home is absolutely incredible. They have been working around the clock to keep our residents as safe as possible while providing the highest quality care.”

“Chalon L’atid truly changed my life for the better. It showed me I was not alone, it showed me the resources available to isolated Jewish students, and it showed me that I was worthy and capable of being an active Jewish leader in all communities I find myself in.”
– Troy Richard
“CARES funding is extremely important to Shlenker because we have many added expenses to our budget due to the pandemic. The Federation is very important to this process because of the front end work they do with HISD…They meet with the principal group…and are available around the clock to answer any questions.”
– Casey Suter, Elementary Division Head, The Shlenker School
FROM POVERTY TO PANDEMIC
“This period now, at the end of my life, is probably the most difficult of everything I’ve lived through, and what’s helped us survive and continues to help us today is JDC. These are people who truly care about us. They support us. They send us homecare workers. They help us. They buy groceries. They make us food. They help us to remain people and not descend into madness. That’s why I’d like to thank everyone—both our staff and everyone who helps us—for giving us the chance to survive in circumstances like these.”
– Zhanna Sergeevna Salova
